Craig Nielson MA, CPC

craigprofileSmallCraig serves as a coach, motivational speaker and advocate for women. He specializes in coaching women to a place of emotional wellness and wholeness by building confidence and breaking the obsession for perfection cycle.

Having grown up in a family with all sisters, Craig has been an unofficial safe haven for female friends and women throughout the years, all of whom have gravitated toward him for his unique male perspective, understanding ear, and profound guidance.

During a 13-year career in law enforcement, Craig worked with victims of sex crimes, domestic battery and sexual assault. His life-long experience with women suffering from emotional distress came to a head when he responded to a call for a tragic suicide by a beautiful 23-year-old woman. At this juncture, his life purpose shifted entirely. He knew his collective life experience had prepared him for his true calling: coaching women to emotional wellness and wholeness.

Craig went back to school to earn his Master's Degree in Counseling and Educational Psychology, as well as his Certification as a Professional Life Coach through iPEC, the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching. →
