Christian J. Nelson, PhD

I am a clinical psychologist with expertise in treating men with prostate cancer and other genitourinary malignancies. As the psychological liaison to Memorial Sloan Kettering’s genitourinary and sexual medicine services, I provide short- and long-term counseling services to patients struggling with cancer-related issues. Men who are undergoing treatment for these diseases sometimes experience treatment-related sexual dysfunction, and I help them and their partners optimize intimacy before, during, and after treatment. I also work with the Center’s 65+ Program, providing psychological support for our patients who are 65 and older, and I co-facilitate a support group for patients dealing with the combined issues of cancer and aging.
