In Focus Counseling - Carrie Nelson
Carrie is a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate and a graduate of Capella University with a Master’s of Science in clinical mental health counseling. She also received her Bachelor’s Degree in psychology and social work from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 2020.

Carrie prides herself on making a positive impact in the community through working alongside her clients and being an active member of their healing journey. Any client working with Carrie can expect some entertainment and realistic growth in their sessions as she often works to find deeper meaning and humor with clients to make therapy purposeful and helpful while still being fun. Carrie describes herself as a counselor through her ability to relate with her clients through her own mental health journey, her self-proclaimed “mind blowing” approaches to treatment, and of course through her lively demeanor – that can be best illustrated through her fun and festive nails!

Carrie is trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), as well as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), but she also values the use of existential theory, mindfulness, and various trauma-informed approaches in sessions. Carrie is determined to help you in building the ladder to begin climbing towards your goals because she recognizes that even if you feel you’ve hit rock bottom, there is no way but up. Are you ready to start your new healing journey?
