Announcement icon Offering Telehealth online sessions using HIPPA compliant platform. Please email or call to schedule a session. I'm here to support you!
The path of self-discovery and fulfillment is one of the most profound journeys on which we embark. This path requires that we are witnessed and supported by another so that we can develop a loving and accepting relationship with our true selves. My role as your therapist is to help guide and support your unique process of self-discovery. We will identify and then heal any self-destructive behaviors, limiting beliefs, addictive behaviors, and/or unhealthy relationships so you can know your true self and reach your potential towards a fulfilling life with purpose. Visit my website: www.karennelsonlcsw.com
I'm committed to value your strengths and support you to live a fuller, more satisfying life. I work with adults around issues of trauma, abuse, addictive compulsive behaviors, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, life transitions, difficult relationships, identity, sexuality, and grief. I am the Director of Training at The Training Institute for Mental Health.
I have been described as warm, humorous, thoughtful, sensitive, and easy to talk to. I have post-graduate certificates in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, trauma studies, and I am trained in EMDR. I draw upon eclectic modalities to suit each individual’s needs. I am happy to provide Telehealth sessions during the virus!
