Paula Nelson, EdD, LCSW, MCAP, CET, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Dunedin
I can help you to have better relationships, increased self-esteem, and less worry. My expertise is in working with couples and individuals who are struggling with their relationships or are going through difficult times. When you work with me, you'll have a partner, advocate, and cheerleader! I am nonjudgmental.This will enable you to safely talk about what most worries or concerns you.
I utilize the Gottman Method to address marital and couple's issues. This involves taking a "Relationship Checkup" which is an online questionnaire to assess every area of your relationship. We'll use the results to emphasize your strong points and work on the issues that come up over and over again in your arguments.
I also offer EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) to my clients. Utilizing eye movements, we can quickly address your anxieties, phobias, traumas, depression, and addictions.
