Melissa Chung, MSW, RSW.  Contact at (613) 852-8700 or melissachungrsw@gmail.com

I am a Masters Level Registered Social Worker and have been working with children and families in the Ottawa area for the past seventeen years. Throughout my years, I have been fortunate to work in a variety of settings that have each helped shape who I am and my therapeutic approach in counselling. My work background includes areas such as child protection, children’s mental health and the education system. Through these experiences I have been privileged to witness many children and families face life’s challenges with courage and resilience. I believe that everyone has within them the ability to change themselves and their lives for the better, although sometimes we can all use a little support along the way.

I offer a nonjudgmental, supportive, therapeutic environment to work through these struggles and challenges. My particular area of expertise is working with children and their families. I work from a strengths based, cognitive behavioural approach with a strong emphasis on attachment, mindfulness and positive parenting. I have experience with many issues that children and families face such as anxiety, depression, anger and behaviour problems, grief, school avoidance, bullying, divorce, parenting struggles, identity issues, strained family relationships and adjusting to many of life’s transitions.

I also have experience and am interested in working with adolescents and adults who may be struggling and facing challenges in their lives. I believe that everything happens for a reason and when difficult events occur they awaken us to a deeper understanding of ourselves and our lives. It is possible to move through the pain with the proper support and live your life the way you have always wanted to.

I am a registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers and work under the supervision of a psychologist for most services. My counselling services are covered under the majority of benefit plans. It may be helpful to call your insurance first to confirm your insurance benefits coverage.

I believe that in order for therapy to be a success, you have to feel comfortable with your counsellor therefore please don’t hesitate to contact me for a free telephone consultation. Please note that I am a School Social Worker with the Ottawa Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) and work in the east end of Ottawa. I am unable to see children and adolescents who attend the schools I am assigned to but am happy to refer you to someone else. All schools have free social worker support and services offered.

Courtney Fleming, MSW, RSW.  Contact at (613) 797-7674 or courtneyflemingmsw@gmail.com

I am a clinician with a passion for working with children and youth and their families. I hold a Master's degree in Social Work from Carleton University, and am registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers.  I am trained in a number of therapeutic modalities which include: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution- Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Collaborative Problem Solving. I work with children, youth and adults - both individuals, and family`s.​

My professional background includes working with trauma, mood and anxiety disorders, youth in care and individuals with high functioning ASD. Both professional and personal experiences has equipped me to work with people presenting with a variety of issues and problems. ​Such issues include, but are not limited to:

* Mental health- depression, addiction, anxiety, PTSD, and coping difficulties.

* Blended family and step-parent supports, family cohesion

* Grief/Loss

* Parenting, collaborative problem solving, attachment

I believe that feeling comfortable and supported is the most important factor in any therapeutic relationship. The attentive listening, empathy and feedback that are part of the therapy process can help reduce feelings of isolation, connect us to inner resources and lead to meaningful change. I believe people connect through laughter, and humour is often a part of my practice. I am happy to provide a free phone consult to ensure a good fit prior to providing services.  Please note that I am a School Social Worker with the Ottawa Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) . I am unable to see children and adolescents who attend the schools I am assigned to but am happy to refer you to someone else. All schools have free social worker support and services offered.
