Hannah Nelson, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor


Do you feel like no one understands? Are you resentful and angry or frustrated with emotional pain that seems to keep coming back? Does it seem like a never-ending cycle that leaves you tired and exhausted at the end of each and every day? Your pain, frustration, and sorrow are all very real. This emotional turmoil can be suffocating, often separating you from the ones that you love. If you feel lonely, or your thoughts don’t always make sense, I encourage you to call me. I would love the opportunity to hear your story. Together we will work through the turmoil to find clarity and meaning in your life. I work with adults as well as children. As a compassionate counselor with a heart for youth, I recognize the difficulties the young mind faces. My clinical focus is adults and children with OCD and other anxiety disorders. I also have experience working with grief and loss. Everyone deserves to be heard and therein lies my passion for counseling.
