Lisa Nelson


About Me

Hi - I am a Colorado based licensed clinical social worker. I have worked in the mental health field for over a decade and specifically as a psychotherapist for the last 6 years. I have worked a great deal with clients looking to promote long term behavioral change in their lives and I believe that successful long term change can be prompted by a commitment to seeking and using personal insight. I primarily provide career counseling, financial therapy, and therapy for anxiety based issues.

My counseling style interactive and compassionate, but I won't shy away from giving feedback or challenging a client to consider new perspectives. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is primarily cognitive-behavioral, with some psychodynamic and motivational interviewing components mixed in. I believe that it is important for clients to have an active role in determining the style of their therapy and identification of their specific treatment goals.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by A.R. on Sep 18, 2020 after counseling with Lisa for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Lisa is a very soft-spoken and intelligent therapist. She listened to my needs and really took the time to understand the reason I was starting counseling. I received so much value from our sessions, and felt I had more tools and was better equipped to build stronger emotional boundaries for myself. She gave me a neutral space to vent and feel heard, and I'm very grateful for her expertise. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
