About Me

Greetings!

Did you know that you wear a crown? While it may not be visible to the eye, this crown is filled with all of the jewels (your strengths, uniqueness and talents) that make you the amazing human being that you are. As your therapist, it is my goal to help you see your royalty by helping you navigate life's challenges by helping you to see the beauty within you.

I am Chalice Nelson, a National Board Certified Counselor and Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia. After partaking in my first internship in college at a group home, my desire for the mental health field grew and I graduated from Florida A&M University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. Shortly thereafter, I attended St. John Fisher College where I obtained a Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling in 2013. I have been granted the opportunity to work in a variety of settings, including residential, hospital (Crisis Intervention Unit), outpatient substance use treatment and community based treatment just to name a few. For the past 3 years, I have worked on the administrative side, in which I have gained more knowledge regarding policy and implementation.

As a therapist, I believe that we are all deserving of healing from experiences and are capable of doing so by becoming more attuned to the wonderful skills we possess. I have helped clients on their journey of healing from issues dealing with trauma, depression, anxiety, life transitions, self-esteem and more. I utilize an eclectic therapeutic approach, using a variety of strength-based treatment modalities including Solution-Focused Therapy, Positive Psychology, Narrative Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Through such techniques, I serve to support, educate, empower and provide a safe place for clients to express themselves without judgement and foster confidence to make decisions that work best for each of them individually.

I reside in Atlanta, GA, where I am the owner of The Conscious Queen, in which I offer psycho-educational workshops in which I combine creative and mental wellness activities to help people incorporate healthy self-care practices into their daily lives. I serve on a community board to help find ways to bridge the gap in regard to access to mental health treatment as well.

I look forward to being by your side on your healing journey and I thank you for taking the first step on a path you are destined for!

Be Well,

Chalice

Chalice is amazing. She is kind and gentle and has such a soothing way of speaking. She really listens and offers advice within your capabilities. She is open to changing strategies based on what works for you. She is encouraging and compassionate and feels like an all round just lovely person. She always responds quickly, and with great advice. I always feel like she is really listening to me. I always feel like she is really trying to actively understand how you feel. I can’t recommend her enough!

Chalice has aided my growth tremendously in the time we’ve worked together, I’ll always be grateful to her. Could not think any more highly of her and would recommend her to anyone. She’s the goat.

So far, Chalice has been fundamental in helping me to explore my depression. We have analysed my behaviours and attitudes in life and - excitingly - developed effective methods to challenge and limit the presence of negativity in my day-to-day existence. I am deeply grateful and really look forward to our sessions.

Choosing BetterHelp when I needed it was the best investment I could have made for myself. I came in with the intention to cultivate healthier relationships around me. I had clear goals of what I wanted to achieve for myself like having more self-compassion and being able to make better decisions for myself. Chalice fully respected that. She has been insightful, enlightening, and created a comfortable space for me to reach those goals. I'm so thankful for BetterHelp. This is the second time I've tried it. I'm now choosing to challenge myself in going without it for a couple of months. I hope that when I return, I can continue this journey with Chalice again. As she says, "Healing has no deadline. It is a continuous journey of growing." I am forever grateful to her and choosing BetterHelp.

Chalice has been such a huge help for me with dealing with my anxiety. Chalice is compassionate and really cares about finding ways to help. She challenges me to think about the things that are bothering me and find ways to overcome them. In the short time I have been working with her, I am already making progress. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for help with managing anxiety.
