Hi I’m Nelson!

A quote that drives my practice with clients is: “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” – Viktor E. Frankl. While we can’t control everything that happens to us, we can learn to control how we respond. I enjoy helping clients heal by opening up their capacity for choice in the face of hardship and discomfort.
When working with clients, I strive to help them be themselves and put their time and energy into the things that matter most to them. In doing so, I help people learn new skills, embrace uncertainty, and live with purpose. Through this process I focus on building collaborative relationships that bring healing experiences to my clients in and out of the therapy room.
Overall, I enjoy helping my clients discover who they are and the value they bring to the world. I love helping people rise above their challenges and then proactively maintain long-term healing and growth. I believe it’s never too late—or too early—to improve your mental health.
