"My mind was filled with such false beliefs and unrelenting self-criticism that the depression it left me with was consuming and left me feeling helpless. With my therapist's help, I have been able to work through these issues and see positive changes and a better life I never thought I'd get to see."
I think that Dr. Nelson's ability to engage and guide [a] patient in the psychotherapeutic process has been nothing short of miraculous, and it has allowed her to make wonderful progress in a brief period of time.
Dr. Nelson has exceptional clinical skills and flexibility to be able to work with individuals from different disciplines and always has an open-door policy for all learners.
I was able to unlearn the false truths developed at a young age and bring to light my real self, giving me confidence, and learning to love myself as I am. I'm forever grateful for the impact he has had on my life.
