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.
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.
