Nelson Jenig, LSW
Nelson is a Licensed Social Worker who enjoys the genuine connections that are made within a therapeutic relationship. In her practice, her goal is to provide a safe and empathetic space for you to feel comfortable “opening up,” and her focus is to support you as you work to make things in your life better. Nelson comes to Patchwork from the world of school social work, and brings with her experience supporting teens, young adults, and their parents, navigating life facing anxiety, depression, anger, grief/loss, ADHD, and trauma.
Nelson has a working knowledge of how people are affected and impacted by the systems within which they live and move, and works intimately with the school system on matters pertaining to 504, IEP, and otherwise coping soas to be attentive in the classroom. Nelson utilizes both brief, solutions-focused intervention with practical applications, as well as a humanistic, psychodynamic approach that supports longer-term self development.
Additionally, Nelson will be completing a fellowship with the University of Chicago, learning Contextually-Focused Dialectical Behavior Therapy practices, beginning in October 2022.
