Offering services for over 20 years, we at Christian Counseling of Reno would like to invite individuals and families looking for experienced Christ-centered care to our professional offices. We consist of a team of highly respected psychotherapists who are Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists and Addictions Counselors.  We are dedicated to helping individuals, couples, and families move through the problems of life to improve mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health.  In an atmosphere of warmth and caring, we help clients develop new skills / tools, and / or strategies for dealing with new-everyday as well as reoccurring-familiar problems.  We will support you in a whole-person approach by working with other health professionals when necessary while striving to maintain an obligation to honor each person’s worldview.

Any life change and / or journey is more tolerable, successful, and maybe even more enjoyable when it’s done with someone by your side, and research supports this idea.  Regardless of what your life’s dilemma may be these days, we will be honored to help you launch those first steps in taking charge of your well-being today.  If anything good comes of our time together ….. to God be all glory, honor, and praise!

Meet Steven Boyd, M.Div, M.S.



Steven Boyd, M.Div. and M.S.

NV Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

NV Licensed Clinical Alcohol & Drug Counselor

Certified Sex Addictions Therapist (w/ IITAP)

EMDR Trained Therapist

I’ve been a part of Christian Counseling for the past 11 years working with individuals, couples, and families who want to discover healthy ways to get more out of life.  I hold credentials as a Marriage and Family Therapist; a Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor; a Master Addictions Counselor certified by NAADAC; and am the only Certified Sex Addiction Therapist in northern Nevada trained by the International Institute for Trauma & Addiction Professionals (IITAP).

I hold two masters degrees focusing on education, Christian counseling, and marriage and family issues. I am also EMDR trained and use this skill in treating trauma and addictions issues. My therapy approach encompasses (among others) narrative, solution focus, CBT and family systems therapies.

Are you interested in counseling with a Christian focus?  Though I am equally comfortable and capable of counseling from a secular or spiritual focus, many of my clients appreciate counseling from a Christian perspective.  With over 22 years experience in pastoral ministries, I am able to counsel with a Christian approach using Biblical principles as it meets the need of my clients.

Have you found yourself wondering how your relationships and/or marriage or family relationships got so difficult? Are you struggling with marital fidelity issues? Are you addicted with problems related to alcohol, substances, porn or the sex trade?

I can help.

Meet DR. Yiota


Yiota Matsukas, Ph.D.

NV Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

NV Licensed Educational Counselor

National Certified Counselor (NCC)

& School Counselor (NCSC)

As a provider for mental health services for 20+ years, I take pride in offering the best services to my clients while acknowledging a person’s world view on “life and love and other mysteries” (from Point of Grace).

It is my belief that each of us has a “treasure chest” of life experiences, knowledge, and if we are mature enough we have learned wisdom.  What’s inside of and stored in the treasure chest?  Let’s search for any significance in it if such exists.  Life is too short and precious to struggle even one day with unhappiness, indecision, poor life habits and / or choices, and/or despair.  There is a reason for all things good and bad in our lives even if we can’t see it today; so let’s work toward a life understanding, purpose, and meaning together.

My educational / training focuses have been in Systems, Solution Focused, Cognitive Behavioral and Narrative Therapies; Christian Counseling, and Bio/Neurofeedback.

Clinically, my experience consists primarily of Mood Disorders, Body Image Disorders, and some Personality Disorders in both out-and-in-patient settings.  I believe knowledge and understanding of oneself and any medical diagnosis (if there is one) is an invaluable source of power necessary for surviving the complex world in which we live these days.

A significant concentration on family problems; women’s, child, and adolescent issues including evaluations and diagnosis for ADHD and autism; and trauma recovery have become the focuses of my therapeutic work over the years in my private practice.  Whatever the subject matter you might wish to contemplate, whether individually or with other family members, we’ll both (or all) be better for having pondered them together.

Want to know more about me?




And this is Lola, Dr. Yiota’s service dog.

Also registered with the Alliance of Therapy Dogs, Lola has a unique awareness of those who are hurting in their hearts, and she absolutely adores children!  She never refuses a treat, and if she really takes to you, she’ll probably ask if she can rest on your feet.
