About Me

Hello. My name is Audre Nelson and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist in the state of California. I have been supporting clients from all walks of life for over 15 years. It is my honor to support my clients in walking side by side with them in their healing journey. I see my relationship with my clients as a true partnership in working together to achieve the goals my clients set for themselves. I believe my clients are the experts on themselves, including their thoughts, feelings, experiences, etc. and I have many years of honing my skills as a clinician. This pairing is what makes for great change in the lives of my clients. My approach is truly eclectic. There are times when it's appropriate to support my clients in obtaining new coping tools so I will offer more feedback, idea sharing and be more proactive in session. Other times it is more appropriate to facilitate deep healing work so the focus shifts more to the state of "being" rather than "doing." I am comfortable working in all of these facets of healing.

I acknowledge for you taking the first step in your healing process. Please contact me if I it seems I may be a good fit to support you where are you at and where you would like to be.

I look forward to connecting with you.

Audre has been amazing in my journey to healing so far. I love that she keeps it real when it comes to her responses and suggestions but has a sense of humor as well. She is a great listener and asks me the reflective questions that I need to hear. I can’t recommend her enough!

Audre was incredible. She was professional yet friendly and warm, a great listener, and someone I felt truly comfortable being myself with and being vulnerable with. I greatly appreciated her feedback and helpful questioning and always looked forward to our sessions. I could never believe how quickly the time passed. Thank you Audre for being a source of support and trust, for never judging and for holding space for me while I navigate through these muddy waters and learn to know myself even better. I've very much enjoyed our short but sweet time together and will take with me all that I've learned from our conversations. I'm grateful to have found you!

Audre is a fantastic therapist and person. I feel heard, respected, and supported every time we speak she does a great job of helping me explore my own thoughts and perspectives and offers valuable new perspectives when I feel stuck.

Audre is very thoughtful and in tune with my perspective and needs. I feel she has done well going at my pace, encouraging me to journal and practice other good habits.

After my first session with Audre, I knew my life would improve! Now I've had 3 sessions and I already feel more in control of my life. Audre is an excellent listener, very compassionate, non-judgmental, and the feedback she gives me has been amazingly helpful in issues that I have been struggling with. I cannot think of any single issue that she wouldn't be helpful in shedding light on. A++++++++

Audre is a breath of fresh air in this overly congested world. She’s a good listener and can articulate clearly a much appreciated perspective.
