Joel Nielson, LPC

On a flight in 2011, Joel became acquainted with the lady next to him. After she mentioning a relationship struggle he could relate with, he asked if he could share a perspective he was given that really launched him forward. She agreed. The conversation was raw, fun, and liberating. In a few short minutes this lady exhaled and relaxed and a peaceful Mona Lisa grin lingered. She found peace with an issue she had been carrying for years! “It’s like you’re my counselor!” she whispered privately with surprise.

Joel knew then he needed to change careers. So he did. Let’s be real. This lady’s whole issue didn’t evaporate. But it did in part, and she knew what action to take next. You too can overcome whatever is disrupting your peace and relationships. Is it time? Joel is willing to help. He is a trauma-informed (EMDR) licensed professional counselor who specializes in anxiety, depression, grief/trauma, and addiction. He assists youth, adults, and couples and families adjust to negative emotions, ADHD and substance and pornography abuse. His practice looks beyond symptom management to understand and increase informed response to the roots and systems that perpetuate the issue. He will help you discover and live according to your strengths, accept your limitations and tap the power already in you to create the life you want. He enjoys rock climbing, skateboarding, anything pesto, is a yoga newbie, and being with his family.
