About Me

Hello! My name is Aletha A. Nelson. I am a licensed professional counselor in Louisiana. I have been a licensed counselor for 7 years. I have worked with a range of individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, anger, stress related issues, self-esteem, and life transitions- just to name a few! I received a Master of Science in Rehab Counseling from University of North Texas.
Therapy is an inviting place where every single part of you is welcome, even the parts that are uncomfortable to share. As a therapist, I am honored that you chose this process as your vehicle to healing. Therapy will be difficult sometimes and at others the most enjoyable part of your week. As your therapist. I welcome these opposing states and embrace them.
I believe that therapy is a collaborative process between the therapist, individuals, families, groups, and organizations. I can help you identify goals and potential solutions to difficulties which cause emotional turmoil; seek to improve communication and coping skills; strengthen self-esteem; promote behavior change and have optimal mental health.
I will tailor your treatment plan based on your needs and goals and move at a pace that is best suited for you. My approach is client-centered, always, with other modalities I use depending on the presenting issues, such as, cognitive behavioral, solution focused and psychodynamic.

Aletha is super supportive and makes our sessions a learning experience. She has a kind demeanor and always stays positive. Would definitely recommend Aletha to my peers, as she makes the sessions easy and rewarding.
