Approach To Care

One of the most rewarding things we can do in life is to work to better understand ourselves. Our reactions. Our contexts. Our relationship patterns. Our struggles. Our strengths and our potential. This understanding can help us weather life’s unpredictability, losses, and hardships. Dr. Nelson wants to support you in this valuable and meaningful work.

Dr. Nelson cares deeply about her clients and works to make sure that is felt. She has been told she is calming, empathic, insightful, and trustworthy. She believes strongly in the power of close, nuanced listening coupled with openness, care, and gentle challenges.
