Announcement icon I'm offering telehealth with doxy.me and sliding scale for those whose incomes have been impacted by COVID-19.
[UPDATE: I am now offering telehealth services via phone/videoconference to help patients experiencing isolation due to Coronavirus social distancing measures. Please ask me about these services.] We often do not know what we want out of life. Our desire is inhibited by something we cannot name. Psychoanalysis goes beyond simply reducing symptoms of anxiety or depression, and provides a unique space to listen to your desire, a space where you can let go of standards, and think out loud without being judged. You can bring your history, your dreams, anything that comes to mind. As you speak freely, you will begin to live more freely.
Psychoanalysis is for those who are willing to “say whatever comes to mind.” This is easier said than done, as we often have unconscious defenses/filters that keep us from speaking freely. Psychoanalysis is a life-changing decision to move away from ordinary paths to that of our own desire, where unprecedented and unexpected changes can occur.
I am a psychoanalyst in formation at the Clinical College of Colorado, studying Lacanian/Freudian practice. I hold a Master’s in Therapy from Trevecca, a Masters in Divinity from Princeton Seminary, and have extensive experience with addiction/mental health issues in a residential/outpatient settings.

Chris Nelson's Groups

Freud Reading Group

We are a diverse group of clinicians and laypeople who meet to read Freud's work and discuss it for its clinical import. We meet the first Sunday of the month at our homes in Nashville. Please email us for a copy of the PDF reading we will be discussing. We primarily focus on Freud's famous case studies, such as Dora, The Rat Man, The Wolf Man, Schreber, etc. This group is not only a great way to meet fellow clinicians and network, but also to further one's own study of the art of psychoanalytic treatment.
