Dr. Robert Nelson


About Me

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over twenty years of providing counseling and psychological help to individuals from a diverse background, with varying beliefs and issues. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in a triple major to include psychology, sociology and theology. I dual tracked Masters work in Marriage and Family therapy while completing a doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I have certifications as a School Psychologist in California and South Carolina and a School Administrator's certification in California. I have a deep personal faith but value all persons regardless of their belief systems. I have studied and mastered many different treatment approaches however I have found the most effective treatment approach is that which best fits each individual client. For that reason, I am always very interested to learn which approach each client thinks best. I approach all clients with a deep respect and a person-centered tenet of unconditional positive regard.

While working toward a Masters in Marriage and Family Psychology I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse group of couples on a wide variety of issues. I find working with couples to successfully resolve relationship issues is extremely rewarding. I look forward to working with you!
