About me

Hi, I’m Chelsea [she/her]…

I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the State of Oregon. My overall approach is rooted in the various psychotherapies I utilize to support your therapeutic goals. I enjoy supporting clients with trauma, stress, anxiety, identity development, parenting issues, and life transitions. My intention is to help you develop improved understanding of yourself and your life situation, identify areas of necessary change, and collaborate with you in developing strategies for implementing any needed changes. With expanded insight comes authentic expression and new understanding to cultivate wholeness. I bring to my practice a background in outdoor leadership, hospice, community, residential, and school-based mental health, I have experience working with diverse individuals in unique settings and often incorporate my values of nature and self-expression into my work.

I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Chelsea Garrison. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Chelsea meets me and receives me wherever I’m at and really gives me the space to let it all out. My only wish is that our sessions could be longer than 30 minutes.
