Carly Nielsen


“My aim in working with individuals is to create an inclusive and supportive therapeutic environment using empathy, compassion, and authenticity. I offer a flexible, clientcentered approach to therapy. This means that I view the therapeutic relationship as a collaborative process where client and therapist work together to develop goals and objectives for therapy and explore the best ways to go about it.”
