Dr. Nelson is a wonderful child psychiatrist who truly cares and listens. She is direct, but kind and understanding. Both of my kids (ages 12 and 13) love her and have an easy rapport with her. She has truly been a gift to our family and I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Dr. Nelson has been helping our son with his anxiety and ADHD. She is able to speak to him and make him feel comfortable and feel good about himself. We’ve seen such positive changes in all aspects of his life. She is also an advocate for your child and helps parents navigate the complicated world of ensuring your child has the right support system at school.

Dr. Nelson is fantastic. I have seen several psychiatrists. I have never met another doctor that is so in tune with my son’s needs. More importantly, she talks directly to him about his needs and doesn’t just listen to me, as the parent. She always takes the time to listen and ask questions to understand all the issues.
