New Dawn Counselling & Consulting, RN, BScN, MEd, Licensed Professional Counsellor in Summerland
My name is Michelle Nelson. I counsel women of all ages. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#3093) and a Registered Nurse. A member in good standing with both the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors and College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia (CRNBC). A Master's degree in Counselling Psychology was obtained from the University of Victoria and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University College of the Cariboo. My work experience has encompassed psychiatry, a medical detox center and Mental Health.
In the last 10 years I have worked in private counselling practice. I have had good success with clients resolving issues such as: anxiety, depression, grief and loss, stress, low self-esteem, addictions, life transitions and generalized adolescent issues.
My speciality is counselling women in all reproductive phases- pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and postpartum which includes; concerns related to fertility, anxiety, traumatic birth experiences, postpartum depression and perinatal grief and loss. PPD is treated by examining the contributing factors, expectations of self, relationship and developing a plan of care to cope with the depression.
