About Our Founder
Dr. Valery (Val) Nkendong, DNP, founded Desert Bolt® Behavioral in 2019. Dr. Val's15-years of experience in the healthcare industry has given him a solid foundation to provide client-centered care. He began his work as a CNA, then transitioned to an LPN, and later an RN and facility supervisor. Dr. Val obtained his Master of Science Degree in Nursing with a concentration in Psychiatric Mental Health and A Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree at Walden University. As a Doctor of Nursing Practice, Valery can service clients through counseling and medication management. Dr. Val believes that having a thorough understanding of substance abuse is paramount. Substance use and mental disorders can make daily activities difficult and impair a person's ability to work, interact with family, and fulfill other primary life functions. His priority is to get patients actively involved in their treatment plans.
Dr. Val's work with clients is critical to their behavioral and physical health. He looks forward to continuing work as a mental health provider and growing in the industry. As a Mental Health Outpatient Treatment Center, Desert Bolt® Behavioral offers a warm and caring environment where people of all backgrounds are welcome.
