Melissa Fellin MSW, RSW, PhD

Melissa works with children in a number of areas such as mental health and behavioural issues, including ADD/ADHD, depression, anxiety, disruptive behaviours and trauma. Melissa also works with children who are facing school problems, bullying, family problems, grief and loss and health issues.
The family and/or primary caregivers of the child are integral to the process of therapy for children. Family therapy is also available for families who have children ages 2 to 11 years old. Melissa does work with children 12+ and their families in a different location. If you are interested, in booking an appointment for 12+ age group please contact Bliss.

Melissa uses integrative (directive and non-directive) play therapy techniques with children. She is informed and uses attachment, psychoanalytic, narrative, cognitive behavioural, interpersonal and feminist therapies as well as mindfulness and meditation to meet the child where they are at in their healing journey. Melissa believes it is a privilege to learn about the inner world and experiences of children.  Inclusion of emotional, psychological, spiritual and physical aspects of the individual is welcome in treatment.
