Mental Health Counselor – Melissa Nielsen
Tansi, my name is Melissa Nielsen. You might now me as the lady with the dog – as Griffy (9 pounds of energy) often travels with me as co-therpaist! I have the privildge of visiting your community every other week in order to provide counseling services for children, youth, adults, families and couples. As well, in Spuzzum and Boston Bar we have informational sessions on ‘hot topics’, such as: Understanding the Goals of Misbehaviour, Supporting Healthy Self Esteem, Normal Sexual Development in Children, just to name a few!
Why Counseling? People will often seek out counseling support to have someone to bounce ideas off of – or simply just to be listened too and be validated. Counseling is an opportunity for you to explore your future goals, tackle obstacles and become the best possible you!
What about children? Yes, counseling is great for young children and older children. I often use play therapy and art therapy (toys, puppets, sand, paint, clay, etc) as tools to help children express their experiences. This is very important as young children often do not have the vocabulary or emotional understanding to express their feelings or thoughts verbally.
Is it confidential? This is a great question as living in a small community it can be a challenge, at times, to keep some things private. In a counseling relationship – confidentiality is one of the most crucial components – as trust is crucial for you and the therapist to help you move in the direction you choose.
Still have a question or not sure, but curious? Feel free to email me to set up a time/place we can meet. email@example.com or call Boothroyd and leave message @ 604-867-9211.
Have a great day!
