About Me

Welcome! If you are looking at my profile, it is likely that you have some type of life struggle that I would be happy to help you with! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Illinois, with 2 years of pre-clinical experience and 9 years of clinical experience. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Law Enforcement and Justice Administration from the Western Illinois University, and my Masters of Social Work from the University of Illinois. I have worked in a residential setting with at-risk you, an inpatient psychiatric hospital primarily with adults, but also with children, and outpatient therapy with clients of all ages. I have experience in supervising clinical staff and helping LSW and LCSW candidates prepare for their licensing exams.

I provide a strengths-based approach using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused techniques. I believe that meeting the client where they are at is the best approach to building a strong therapeutic relationship. I want to know what your goals are so that I can help to provide you the tools to achieve those goals.

I look forward to working with you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Trisha Nelson. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
