Elizabeth A Nelson, PhD, Psychologist in Denver
I specialize in cognitive-behavioral (CBT) for adults. I help you learn a set of practical tools to help with how you're thinking and what you're doing in certain situations, so you can feel better and move forward in your life. It's important not only that you feel better through our work together, but also that you know exactly what you did to get there, so you are confident in how to help yourself continue to feel well going forward.
I aim to keep treatment short-term (6-20 sessions). We use sessions to understand your challenges, and practice skills likely to help. Then, we identify what you can try between sessions to see what works (or doesn't). I also teach a 6-class series called "The Stress Solution" - scroll down to learn more.
If you are struggling with anxiety, sadness, grief or anger, or acting in ways that concern you or important others in your life, there is help. Call me to schedule a consultation, or book an appointment online through www.TheColoradoCenter.com right now.

The Stress Solution (in 6 Easy Lessons)

"The Stress Solution" is a series of 6 classes designed to help you develop an effective tool kit for conquering stress or anxiety. The classes are a really efficient way to learn the tools you need - like 12-15 sessions of individual therapy! Because this is a class format (not group therapy), you just come and learn, and you choose how much or how little you share with others. You'll learn specific strategies for dealing with runaway thoughts and how to calm your body's reactions. Go to www.TheColoradoCenter.com, click on "The Stress Solution" button for details!
