Open the awesome flowchart entitled “Do You Want To Become a Nevada Certified Problem Gambling Counselor?” and I will guide you, like a happy cruise director, for a more pleasant experience. It’s usually smooth sailing, however I’ll offer some lifesavers in case we encounter stormy weather during your voyage.
Greetings, I’m Denise Quirk, a CPGC-Supervisor in Nevada. I had the awesome opportunity to serve my fellow Nevadans and others moving here who wished to become expert counselors serving those affected by gambling disorder by assisting in creating and getting legislation passed in 2004 which raised the treatment bar in Nevada. Nevada proudly represents one of the few United States which certify problem gambling counselors and supervisors, using the only nationally-approved gambling exam available. That means we are the best! We can share that information with confidence, knowing our CPGC’s and CPGC-Supervisors and CPGC-Interns are the finest experts in offering treatment to people affected by gambling disorder in Nevada and perhaps the whole country!

This also means interns and supervisors have some difficult work to do together. I think you’d agree with me and the others who helped establish our high standards that anyone wanting an expert in caring for themselves and their loved ones want the best. We can do hard things, and the things we do that are hard are worth it!
This certification requires rigorous study and involvement with people affected by gambling disorder. Finding the right supervisor and the right place to do this treatment is one of your highest priorities. In order to get to your destination, using our nautical metaphor, you need a good captain and a good ship.
