About Me

What is your background?

Hello, I'm Alexis Mercado-Canty, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and proud combat veteran residing in Las Vegas, Nevada. I hold a Master's degree in Social Work from the prestigious University of Southern California, where I cultivated a deep understanding of comprehensive mental health care.

My journey in the social services and mental health field has been driven by a profound passion for helping others. I bring a wealth of experience in providing compassionate and effective support to individuals and families navigating life's challenges.

Beyond my direct therapeutic work, I am committed to enhancing mental health awareness in the workplace. Collaborating with businesses and business owners, I strive to create environments where mental well-being is a priority and employees feel valued and supported.

Whether you are an individual seeking personal growth or a business aiming to foster a healthier workplace culture, I am here to guide you on your path to improved mental health and well-being.

Why did you pursue a mental health career? 

From a young age, I have been deeply committed to serving others. My journey in public service began in grade school and has carried me through various roles—military service, volunteer work, the school system, and foster care. This lifelong dedication to public service has shaped my professional ethos and fueled my passion for the betterment of others.

In my personal life, I have always been the go-to person for family and friends, offering a listening ear and helping them navigate their goals and challenges. The joy and satisfaction I feel from supporting others have been a constant source of inspiration for me.

Pursuing a career in mental health was a natural extension of this lifelong commitment. It allows me to channel my passion for helping others into a fulfilling profession where I can make a tangible difference in the lives of individuals and communities. It is both an honor and a privilege to guide others on their journey to emotional and mental well-being.
