About me

Hi, my name is Chelsea! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the states of Indiana and Florida. I have 7 years experience in therapy with a variety of individuals, families and couples from different backgrounds presenting issues ranging from relationship dynamics, trauma, depression, stress management, anxiety, career changes, self/body worth/image, life transitions, grief, and parenting issues.

I am glad you took this first courageous step toward seeking help on a journey to a more fulfilling and happier life. I believe each of us has the strength inside of us to find solutions to the problems and difficulties we face in life. I hope you will allow me to accompany you on your continued journey. Together we will discover strategies and solutions that are best for you and meet your treatment goals.

I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion. I strive to create an open and safe environment where issues, thoughts, and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. My goal is to build upon what is working in your life and collaborate with you to address the needs you feel should be addressed. My approach combines several modalities; however, we will work together to customize a therapy treatment plan that best fits your unique and specific needs. I am here to assist with support and empowerment so you can achieve a balance that’s best for you.

I look forward to working with you!

I enjoy my sessions with Chelsea. She listens and is very kind with great feed back. I feel better speaking with her. Kudos Chelsea.

Chelsea has been amazing. I was with another online company and hated it. I'm so happy I switched to BetterHelp and matched with her. I have learned so much about myself and how to help manage my stress and anxiety. I know she is always there in between sessions for me and has helped me in all aspects of my life. So, so thankful for her.

Written on Jul 23, 2023 after therapy with Chelsea for 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Chelsea is a perfect match for me. She is curious, engaged, and compassionate. By the end of my first session, I felt hope regarding the issue that had been plaguing me -- hope like I hadn't felt in a long time. By the third and fourth session, she had helped me unpack the issue and plot a path forward. She asks really good questions, and helped me make connections that I wasn't able to make on my own. I highly recommend Chelsea!

Chelsea has been nothing but amazing to me. I have tried therapy before and no one has been like her. She truly listens to you and cares for your mental health.

I haven’t been with her long enough yet but during our initial consultation I immediately felt confident in her approach to therapy. I feel that she is understanding of many angles to complex ideas or situations and I feel comfortable confiding in her so far.

Chelsea has helped me more in 2 sessions that my previous therapist did in 8 months. She really listens to what you have to say and helps you dive deeper into the underlying reasons for your issues.
