About Me

Hi! I’m Kim Nelson, LCPC, the supervising therapist at Middleton Counseling. I have 2 beautiful daughters and 3 terrific grandchildren. I love spending time with my wonderful wife TK and our family. For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to work with people who are experiencing anxiety and depression.

My first experience was working with people on the Navajo reservation where I volunteered at a local school. This led me to Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah where I obtained my undergraduate degree in Communications. In my thirties, and after working in the private sector, I went back to school and got my Masters in Community Counseling from Seattle Pacific University. Since that time and for the last 28 years, I have worked with people and organizations helping them smooth transitions, manage change, and build value and esteem. I have written several books, and spoken to audiences all over the nation.

Therapeutic Approach

My area of interest is with people as they negotiate the twists and turns inherent during life. Depression, anxiety, relationships, divorce, blended families, trauma, and decision-making are just some of the bumps that one can encounter along the path. I am honest and collaborate in my approach to helping people solve their difficulties and get to a more peaceful, happy place. During my 3 decades of experience, I have found it most helpful to use a combination of many therapeutic theories all of which are solely focused on the client and their needs.

About Kim’s Books

Kim is amazing. He listened to me and helped me to understand myself better. I was lost of where to go and what to do. He gave me the power to find out answers to my questions. He knows the behaviors of others and guided me on how to be strong with those individuals. He is bold, yet tender in his counseling. I am so blessed and grateful for his help. He allowed me to grow at my pace. He knows people! He understand them! Thanks for all your wise words! -M.C.

I have relied on Kim as my counselor for several years. I’ve been to all sort of counselors and they all sit there and listen to your problems. Not Kim. He listens and then helps you learn and do the work. He doesn’t just listen he teaches you and helps you to do the work necessary for healing.

Kim has changed my life and I will forever be grateful for his knowledge, kindness, expertise and encouraging support. My life is better because of my counseling experience with Kim. -A.D.
