I am a mental health counselor licensed in Kentucky with over 10 years of experience working as a counselor in a clinic setting. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced trauma or emotional abuse. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor and a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor Supervisor in Kentucky.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and when appropriate, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I enjoy working with adults to help you set and achieve your mental health goals.
My typical available hours are early morning. I also have some availability on weekends. If you are seeking different available times, it is unlikely that my schedule would be able to accommodate those needs at this time. I would be happy to help match you with a new counselor if you have been matched with me and our schedules do not align.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Love her. She really helps. I feel I can be open and honest and she is nonjudgmental. I don’t dread therapy.

She is very prompt! And listens before making her recommendations! Would highly recommend her to anyone.

Chelsen has been such a light in my life over the last 6 months. I came to her in a state of somewhat desperation— I was hurt and confused and didn’t know how to handle things that had happened and changed that were coming in my life. I have grown to really respect her and her honesty. She is not afraid to make recommendations or suggestions that aren’t always in my largest favor— but instead the better alternative overall. I am very grateful for her.

I’ve never had a therapist before so I’ve been very hesitant on doing this but chelsen has been a great person for me to talk to. I enjoy doing her worksheets and chatting with her even if it’s about day to day things. She is a great person and I couldn’t have been paired with someone better.
