Elaine Nelson, MS, LMFT, LCADC, Marriage & Family Therapist in Henderson
Limited daytime appointments available. I believe the joys and sorrows of life are viewed from our own unique perspective. Sometimes, trauma touches our lives, and may cloud our thoughts and feelings, interfere with our daily activities, and disrupt our relationships. Other times, things change in our lives and throw us off balance, leaving us questioning who we are and where we are going. As your therapist, we will explore these memories or events, work to reduce the emotional response to them, and create a healthy self-concept to enhance daily living and interactions.
Individuals, couples, & families may benefit from EMDR therapy and Gottman interventions for couples. Together, we can achieve positive results for individuals who struggle with history of childhood abuse, substance use, relationship problems, post-traumatic stress, or complex trauma. Healing is possible & I look forward to working with you.
*** I am fully licensed & AAMFT approved supervisor for MFT/CPC & LCADC interns.*** I am an Air Force veteran and understand the demands and dynamics of military service for members and families. *** Certified in EMDR Therapy with advanced training & experience & EMDRIA approved consultant. *** Trained in the Gottman approach to couples therapy.
