Chelsey Zelizney, BA, BSW, RSW
Clinical Counsellor / Registered Social Worker
Chelsey is NOT accepting new clients.
After many years of considerable “debate” (what I like to call it) over my education and life’s path, I had found my true purpose after a personal life-changing event. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Saskatchewan in 2014 and went on to complete a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work (University of Regina) in 2016. I am a Registered Social Worker with the Saskatchewan Association for Social Workers, a mental health educator, a clinical counsellor, and a new mom.
Our health is no joke, and I love exploring that on a larger canvas, physically, socially, and mentally. I have had the opportunity to travel across Canada presenting and educating on mental health, but would find myself having in depth conversations with individuals, who felt that connection to myself, sharing their struggles, or struggles being experienced by a loved one. I knew that I had the ability to do more, I knew that I wanted to do more, and from there a full launch into a counselling career began.
I believe that your experience with a counsellor should begin with connection. I have always had a natural ability to especially connect with children, teens, and young adults, as I like to think I am pretty hip, however my “coolness” also carries over to all ages. I’ve been told I am a compassionate, extremely empathetic, and relatable woman who puts individuals at ease to discuss some of their biggest hurts and fears. I understand the journey that one undergoes when struggling and healing with their mental health and other related issues, as I myself, have walked that road (well let’s be honest, plenty of roads). The road can be so bumpy, with many cracks along the way, and sometimes just when we feel that road is smooth again, there comes another road block. I love that I get to sit down with people and assist them in finding a solid path or smoothing out those roads. My own journey and vast array of experiences has helped me to become extremely passionate for the work that I do. With me there is no judgement, no shame, and no issue that is “too small” when you step into my office. Let’s talk (and take a few deep breaths while we’re at it) because the most courageous thing you will ever do is reach out.
