About Kate Nelson, LMHC

Hello, I’m Kate Nelson. I have been providing career counseling and career development services for over 30 years. In addition to private practice, I worked as the Coordinator of Career Counseling at the University of Washington Counseling Center for 24 years.

I’ve also taught Career Development classes for the UW Certificate Program for several years and earned the UW Award for Teaching Excellence in 2001.

My background as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor enables me to assure confidentiality and confidence in exploring both the personal and professional issues inherent in career counseling. I have a special interest in the relationship between self-esteem and career and have conducted research that supports the importance of self-esteem when choosing and performing well in a career.

As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I adhere to the ethical standards of the American Counseling Association and I carefully safeguard client information in accordance with the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). For an added measure of security, I use an encrypted, secure email service.
