About Us

R. Kenneth J. Nelan Licensed Professional Counselor

My approach towards helping others walk a path of good mental health emphasizes a person-centered multicultural trauma-informed integrative approach that empowers clients to find their own path to healing for long-term results. I use a tailored approach to counseling. Since every client is different, so too should be their road to success.

I completed my Masters in Educational Psychology under the Community Counseling program at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee in 2016.  Prior to UWM, I studied at Sacred Heart School of Theology with an emphasis on Pastoral Counseling and Theology, and Cardinal Stritch University with an emphasis on Religious Studies.  Over the years, I have continued my education in hypnosis, Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and developed a unique combination of interpersonal psychoanalysis, mind-body stimulation and cognitive behavioral techniques, which helps me to diagnose and treat my clients more effectively.

I have worked with hundreds of patients from all walks of life, which has provided me with a deep insight and a practical view of the problems the people are facing in their lives; whether personal or professional. Whether it is depression due to lack of respect and recognition at work, death of a close family member, emotional distress due to separation, addiction, hypersensitivity, hyperactivity, loss of job, or any other problems affecting your mental health.

My approach towards treating my clients is using a collaborative approach, which collectively helps bring that much needed balance.  I aim to help my clients walk their own road to recovery and growth.
