Lainy Peralta is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor specializing in Play Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR).

She previously served in the U.S. Army for 14 years, during which time she discovered a strong desire to help others and decided to pursue a Master’s of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling.

As a counselor, Lainy believes that her experiences in the military and as a mother have helped her to understand and master the ability to attentively listen and work together with her clients to improve outcomes. Her top priority is her client’s well-being and future success in overcoming barriers.
