Nellie works with individuals, from late teens to adults of all ages, and couples who face challenges, sticking points, or life transitions. She helps them reframe their life stories to gain fresh insights and create a new narrative of hope and happiness for the future.

Nellie supports her clients by reality-testing their core beliefs about themselves – beliefs often tied to hurtful or negative storylines. We are all shaped by our histories and life experiences. However, these histories do not need to define or burden us as we pursue the positive life we are meant to live.

Through narrative tools and interventions she has developed, Nellie helps individuals craft a new way forward. This empowers them to align with possibilities of the present, while gently releasing pain tied to unfulfilled storylines of the past. She helps clients find silver linings and hope within the context of their challenges, supporting them as they build constructive new narratives around their life stories.
