Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in state of Wyoming with experience in addictions, anxiety, depression, coping, mindfulness, and trauma related struggles, among many other things, for all age groups. I also have experience in working with couples and families, as well as individuals from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. I have been trained in and utilize both the Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy approaches, where I help my clients to identify their current struggles and learn different skills that can be utilized within those struggles. It is my belief that we all have a level of control over ourselves and our struggles, therefore finding that locus of control in ourselves is an integral step in this process.
It is my belief that creating a positive working relationship and rapport is highly important in this process, so I focus on creating that with my clients. My approach is highly client-centered, and I work to meet my clients where they are in an effort to assist in guiding them through the counseling journey. I look forward to working with you soon!

Chelsea has been so supportive, right from our first session. She has a way of making you feel comfortable and that you’re in a safe space so you can talk through anything you need to without the fear of being judged. I can’t recommend her enough.

Chelsea has been very helpful and such a good listener. She is clear, conscise and skilled in our communications. For many years I felt somewhat lonely and struggled with anxious thoughts. Having a trained professional and nonjudgmental safe space has made such a difference. Thank you Chelsea, and I would highly recommend to anyone who desires to prioritize their mental health and wellbeing.
