Hello, my name is Chelsea and I am a mental health counselor licensed in Alabama with over 5 years of experience working as a licensed social worker. While I currently reside in Alabama, I obtained my Mater's Degree from New Mexico Highlands University in New Mexico in 2014.
I have worked as a licensed social worker in the hospital setting, hospice care, and now as a mental health counselor in private practice. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem issues, and LGBTQ+ issues. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, unconditional positive regard, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and client-centered counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your individual and specific needs.
I can interact with you in whatever manner you are most comfortable. I find it helpful to participate in video sessions initially so that we can get to know each other better. but I am also available to you via phone and chat if that is more comfortable for you. A majority of my availability is in the evenings but I check messages at least once during each weekday.
I know how hard it can be to find a counselor who you feel a connection with and I would be honored to work with you through this stage of your life.
Additional areas of focus: Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Anger management, Career difficulties, Compassion fatigue, ADHD
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy

I thoroughly enjoy the counselling sessions I’ve had so far with Chelsea, in a short amount of time we have built a great rapport with one another. She has helped me understand different perspectives and see myself in a different light, I cannot wait to continue the counselling sessions further.
