Dr. Yun Gardner


I am a clinical professional counselor licensed in Nevada. I have over 19 years of counseling experience, working with a wide range of issues. I specialize in trauma therapy & mood disorders (anxiety, depression). I am trained in EMDR, CBT, & Family Systems Theory. 

I have worked with diverse cultural backgrounds including American Indians, African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asians. I am an ally of the LGBTQ community,
I also participate in the Standards of Care Collective for Transgender & Genderqueer Health (SOCC) . The SOCC is a group of independent mental health clinicians who have agreed to offer letters for transition to transgender and genderqueer individuals seeking steps to gender congruence.

​I have been in private practice in the Reno/Sparks area since 2015.  I was adopted in S. Korea at age 4, and grew up primarily in Western Kentucky, Tennessee & Mississippi. I have 2 fur puppies and 1 fur cat that rule the house.
