Dr. Nelson is an excellent therapist. My family and I began seeing him in 2006 as we were going through a difficult time due to divorce. We remained with Dr. N until 2013, just as the last child was preparing to graduate from high school. If I needed to begin counseling again, I would not hesitate to call Dr. Howard E. Nelson. He is a man of GOD, a Christian counselor, and that is what I was seeking and found. Thank you Dr. N.
