Hello! My name is Amber Nelson. I have a passion for walking alongside my clients journeys and fostering a safe space to work through life's challenges. I aim to create an environment where individuals can explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences, without judgment, to work towards personal growth and well being.
My experience spans diverse settings including inpatient facilities, community mental health, and in schools. I work with children, adolescents, and young adults struggling with depression, anxiety, identity, self-esteem and relationships. It takes a lot of courage to seek counseling and I'm so happy you're here.
