Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern

Kristina Nelon

I have wanted to be a licensed mental health counselor for as long as I can remember. As someone who has been to therapy, I know that authenticity is most important. I recently graduated with my M.S. in Counseling from Troy University. I have my B.A. in Psychology. During my internship, I gained experience working in inpatient treatment facilities and various private practices. Thirty combined years of life as a military spouse and brat have allowed me to appreciate cultural diversity, resiliency, and unique experiences. As a military spouse, I have a strong commitment to supporting military families work through adversity.

As I continue to work toward licensure, I know it is important to be fully trained and skilled to meet the needs of each person. I have been trained to practice Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), trauma-informed techniques, and Gottman Method (Level 1). My passion is to help children and adults live a fully enriched and meaningful life using holistic approaches to counseling. I have gained opportunities working with people to overcome substance abuse, trauma, anxiety, body image issues, and depression. My goal is to meet your needs and provide you with the necessary tools to overcome your challenges. 


Current Client: Ms. Kristina Nelon is very good and she knows what she is. I would recommend her to others.

Current Client:  Kristina has really helped me with in the last year. I’ve become more confident and a better person overall since going to her. I’ve also learned how to speak up for myself and speak my mind from her.


Current Client: I appreciate how Kristina helped my child evaluate their sleep and dietary choices as one of the first steps in getting to know them.
