Clinical Social Worker & Addiction Specialist
Licensed clinical social worker & licensed addiction specialist.
Welcome. My name is Stephanie Nelson. I am a licensed clinical social worker, as well as a licensed clinical addiction specialist. If you’re reading this, you have already begun to take control back from the difficult situation you are facing. A part of you may be feeling a little better already. Good!
My job is to learn about your journey and offer thoughtful, therapeutic feedback that is tailored to your unique situation. I utilize a strengths-based approach and know that each individual and family has within them the ability to not only survive but to thrive and flourish in ways they may not have felt were possible. I am passionate about helping others identify the strength and abilities they already have while targeting the patterns that may be blocking innate potential from being realized.
I have worked with adults, families, couples, and adolescents. I’ve seen individuals and families in the most difficult moments of their lives and helped them overcome a wide range of obstacles including co-parenting, substance abuse, teen behavioral struggles, mood disorders, and sexual acting-out. These are some of the areas in which you can expect to improve on as we work together:
- Co-parenting after divorce or separation
- Managing problematic conduct in teens/pre-teens
- Strengthening or re-building family bonds
- Identifying and progressing through career goals
- Developing relapse prevention plans
- Recovering from addiction
- Maintaining marital/couples relationships through the birth of new children
I am truly excited to meet you and to develop a secure, genuine, therapeutic relationship.
Therapy should be comfortable, private, and relaxed. It is important to find a counselor who you connect with, is knowledgeable about your issues, and competent to treat them with a style that fits with your world view. Call or e-mail today so we can chat and you can decide if I’m the right fit for you (910) 535-1266.
