Dawn Nelson, LPC, NCC, MA, Counselor in Avon
Participating in therapy is a gift you give yourself. This choice reveals your personal desire to work toward obtaining greater strength, peace and fulfillment in your life. Physical, emotional and environmental wellness all factor into one's mental health. There are times when life just seems too much to handle.Whether it is a current crisis (divorce, trauma, abuse, job loss, loss of a loved one) or something from your past that has been triggered by a new situation.
It is also about overall wellness; self-growth and a desire to increase your self-confidence, joy and satisfaction with who you are.As a Licensed Professional Counselor, my goal is to help you discover and maintain your true potential through therapeutic healing.
If you are ready to move in a new direction in your life, therapy will provide the extra support and guidance to help you achieve your goals.
