Trisha Nelson

If you are looking at my profile, it is likely that you have some type of life struggle that I would be happy to help you address. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Illinois, with 10+ years of experience. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Law Enforcement and Justice Administration from Western Illinois University (2007), and my Masters of Social Work from the University of Illinois (2009). I have worked in a residential setting with at-risk youth, an inpatient psychiatric hospital with adults and children, and in an outpatient therapy setting with clients of all ages. I also have experience in supervising clinical staff and helping LSW and LCSW candidates prepare for their licensing exams.

I provide a strengths-based approach using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused techniques. I am also a Certified Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Professional. I believe that meeting the client where they are at is the best approach to building a strong therapeutic relationship. I want to know what your goals are so I can help provide you with tools to achieve them.
