I see my job as supporting people in stepping into lives of consciousness, authenticity, meaning, and joy - whatever that looks like for each particular person. My focus is primarily with people who are dealing with grief, addiction / recovery, and/or aging, although many of my clients are outside these particular categories but yet are longing for a deeper life. To get there, healing has to happen first. Trauma needs to be addressed. Beliefs, communication styles, and relationship patterns that are limiting need to be considered and reformulated. Stressors and anxiety needs to be managed. This is the path we travel together.

For decades, I've helped people find new paths through their life challenges. By developing a deep client relationship, applying complementary therapeutic approaches, my goal is to help YOU uncover your true potential and power to live a life you enjoy. Do you doubt that is possible? Therapy may consist of practicing skills related to social and emotional learning and learning how your beliefs about life effect everything. Uncovering and navigating your life stories - telling those stories over and over - of depression, trauma, anxiety, loss, and stress helps YOU figure out YOUR path. Want to try?

I am a psychodynamically-oriented psychotherapist that works with individuals experiencing relational difficulties and/or disruptions in their overall sense of self. Such concerns result in emerging or worsening psychological symptoms that are painful and difficult to manage. In addressing underlying mental conflicts and their associated compromises, I work with people to get behind their symptoms with the goal of developing more insight, self-agency, and a fuller life.

Sex and relationship counseling is an opportunity to create and commit to yourself, your partners, and your intimate relationships. So whether you're trying to get back out there after a significant break up, to connect with a partner's sexuality, or to establish your own boundaries in an intimate relationship, you deserve the time and space to figure it out. I am proud to work with individuals, couples, and partners to explore their values and show up as their most authentic selves in their most valuable relationships.

Are you consumed by worry and overwhelm? So much so that it is easier to just stay home. Feeling totally isolated and alone in your stress and unmotivated to do anything today? Wondering what happened to the person you used to know and want to rediscover yourself? Or, you may be experiencing immense shame and guilt nearly every day. Are you finding your relationships challenging to navigate? Not knowing how to say what you need and want to say? Or, you may be struggling to break addictive patterns and feeling desperate for change.

Christal Nelson is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and substance counselor with 6 years of experience. Before Christal entered the mental health field, she enjoyed a career in EMS and medical transport for approximately 15 years. It was the medical field that fostered her passion to assist in the mental health field, and it also geared her empathy toward grief, trauma, and addictions. In addition, it gave Christal an early insight into burnout and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), so during her tenure as a therapist she became certified in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).

When we come to therapy, often our choices have not led to the life we desire. Under the influence of anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress, or the allure of substances, pornography, spending, etc., it can seem like life is out of our control. Rather than be controlled, we desperately want to be free to pursue what is truly good. Therapy then is an opportunity to not only find freedom from mental turmoil, but to realign life toward what is worth pursuing. The goal, then, is not simply to “not feel” a certain way, but to be drawn into something much greater that transforms our mind, our relationships, our work, our spirit.

I also provide support to parents with managing children's behaviors.

If you are struggling with relationships and life changing events, if you feel trapped in a never ending feeling of helplessness or anger, I can help you find your path back to a stable and safe place. For almost 20 years, I have guided patients to reflection and introspection, where I have empowered them to use the appropriate tools to manage, control and overcome their depression, their overwhelming feelings of loss or self destruction. Sadly enough, these are all to common life struggles arisen from work stress and/or abuse, life changes such as divorce and separation, or remains of a lost childhood.

I work with many LGBTQIA+ clients and believe that issues of social justice are often relevant to therapy. I come from a Health at Every Size perspective, am sex-positive, and am committed to ongoing anti-racist work. I have sought additional training around sexuality and gender and am enthusiastic about supporting folks who are feeling curious about exploring these facets of their experience.
