Chelsea is so caring, understanding, flexible and patient. When I share stories or experiences, she responds in ways that make me feel valued, whole, and real. I appreciate her time and energy so much. We connected on a level right away that I knew she heard me. She goes above and beyond and I highly recommend her as a therapist. I'm grateful to spend time with her. She has helped me to learn to be more fully myself and has helped me grow as a person. Thank you Chelsea!

Chelsea is great! She's caring and professional with great advice. I just really wish it didn't have to be sessions over live chat because I feel like even a call would help me get out more info faster considering it's just 30 minutes.
