About Wendi Nelson, LCSW

Wendi Nelson is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California who has been practicing since 2018. What Wendi loves about therapy is that it offers an opportunity to explore your thoughts, feelings, and opinions, and to develop a more meaningful understanding of your behaviors (the good, the self-sabotaging, and everything in between). Her approach is centered around building trust and creating a safe and supportive environment where clients can feel comfortable opening up and exploring what is contributing to the presenting problem. Wendi is here to offer guidance, support, and evidence-based strategies to help clients overcome obstacles and achieve their full potential. Outside of work, Wendi enjoys exploring beautiful San Diego, with frequent trips to the beach, spending time with her family, listening to live music, and traveling to new places around the world.
