Michael Nelson, LMFT

Michael Nelson treats patients starting at 8 year old. Dr. Nelson graduated from San Diego State University with a Masters of Science in Counseling in 2013. This multi-cultural Marriage and Family Therapy program paved the way for the diverse cultural populations he encountered when providing therapy in clinical settings, middle and high school-based counseling, grief work with Hospice, private practice, and work with youths in the foster system. Within these varied groups, Mike has worked with many people who have experienced trauma in their lives. He is a great listener, and his warm, easy-going style helps people feel more comfortable and ready to face the challenges that may lie in the wake of such adversity.

Mike utilizes a Family Systems approach that looks at how we all are affected by and deal with relationships, and how our lives make better sense when we look at ourselves in the context of our experience. He also borrows from the best of Cognitive Behavioral, Narrative, and Strategic therapies to craft customized treatment plans tailored to the uniqueness of each client. Mike is committed to collaboration with his clients to reach their goals in therapy.
