About Me

PLEASE READ:

The Ohio CSWMFT state licensing board states that you must be presently living in Ohio to receive counseling services from me. If you are an Ohio resident living out of state, you must seek a provider within the state you are presently living in. I am unable to provide counseling to any person out of the state of Ohio.

Hello! Welcome to my Profile! My name is Chelsea and I am a licensed social worker and chemical dependency counselor in the state of Ohio. I am a graduate of Case Western Reserve University located in Cleveland, Ohio where I received my master’s degree in social work. I have worked with children through adulthood who experience mental health, chemical dependency issues and difficult life transitions. In my practice, I utilize motivational interviewing and solution focused treatment, meaning that I am here to support you through setting goals and making changes. Change of any kind can be very scary and unsettling, especially when you feel you may be "missing out" or things are not going the way that you planned. You are not alone in how you feel and it can often be confusing and overwhelming with change happening all around you. My job is to be your sounding board, not to tell you what to do! I am here to support and help you set goals and together, create a game plan! If you're interested in working together, please reach out!!

Right now we are experiencing huge changes in our lives. I am here to help you through these transitions, lower anxieties, navigate these fears and bouts of depressions. We are in this together!

Thank you!

Chelsea is fantastic! I love her interviewing "style" of therapy. It helps me uncover parts of my own experience that I was not completely aware of. Thank you for supporting me, Chelsea!

Chelsea is so easy to talk to and really listens to the issues I'm dealing with that day and offers other perspectives and/or helps me validate and understand why I'm feeling the way I am.

Chelsea has been wonderful helping me through a transitional period of my life, to figure out what is next for me. She always asks the right questions and helps me frame my situation constructively.

As I finish my final session with Chelsea I can only reflect on how positive every one of our sessions were in the past 4 months;

Chelsea and I got matched at a time in my life where I felt hopeless. We were only a few months into the pandemic, I was starting back up at a job where I felt like I was the only person at my job that was uncomfortable and in fear of going back, and overall depressed, anxious, and suicidal.

I started my subscription on a whim and it was worth every dollar. Chelsea made me feel safe, validated, and confident. She talked me through grief, gave me worksheets on anxiety, and listened to my past abuse stories and how they shaped me to be the person today.

I would highly recommend Chelsea for anyone who is going through a transitional time, needing a positive boost to your day, or even a listening ear.

Thank you Chelsea for all you do! Your guidance helped me build confidence in whatever my future brings.

Been a great help to have her as my counselor. Always helped me to thinking through my issues and fun to talk with.

Our time working together was shorter than I would have liked for sure. She is amazing both as a person and a professional, and I truly feel that she has helped me immensely.

Chelsea helped me deal with a lot of anxiety and self esteem issues. She was easy to open up too and really listened to me without judgement. I would recommend her to anyone struggling with anxiety
