About Me

Welcome! I have over 20 years of experience working in mental health. My areas of specialty include depression, anxiety, stress management, trauma, coping with grief and loss, and improving self-confidence. Sometimes unresolved issues from our past can present themselves as stress and anxiety in our daily lives and get in the way of a meaningful life. In addition, life in our fast-paced world can be quite overwhelming and create stress that feels unmanageable.

I use a variety of methods to help clients achieve improved emotional wellness. You CAN learn new ways of thinking about yourself and the world. Our past does not need to define us. Challenges and stress can transform into opportunities to develop yourself in ways that change your life.

I believe in helping people help themselves. And, everyone needs support at some point in their lives. I would be honored to be a support person in your life. Together we will work to find solutions to help you feel better and happier.

In my personal life, I enjoy reading, playing tennis, walking my adorable but somewhat annoying dogs, skiing, playing volleyball, and being the mother of two very spirited tween/teens girls. I look forward to working with you!

She is amazing

Written on Sep 05, 2022 after therapy with Chelsey for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and intimacy-related issues

In my previous therapy experiences, I have never been 100% happy with my therapist. Then Chelsey came along. She is amazing at what she does! From her first message I knew she was “the one”. She is understanding, patient, intelligent, and funny. Chelsey is very easy to talk to and ensures I am always comfortable during our conversations. I would highly recommend Chelsey to anyone that is looking to do the work and understand themselves further.

Awesome!

Written on Aug 03, 2021 after therapy with Chelsey for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, and self esteem

The flexibility of having Chelsey’s support available in non-traditional formats (like messaging) has made the difference between me having counseling and not. I’m about to make a big cross country move so was hesitant to start with someone in person. Her support has been practical and valuable, actionable when I need it and just thoughtful when that’s what I need.

Chelsey is amazing!!!!

Written on Jun 24, 2019 after therapy with Chelsey for 4 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

I really like having Chelsey as my online counselor. She is available any time for me to text my thoughts so I can address them when they arise instead of waiting for a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly appointment. Chelsey responds in a very timely manner and offers empathy and suggestions for dealing with the situations. I value her insight and helpful strategies for dealing with my issues. I feel I have gained more self confidence and am able to make decisions on my own without second guessing myself constantly or worrying about making a different decision than my husband - and when I do, I can stand up for it.

Chelsey is fantastic! She has given me realistic, meaningful, and manageable goals to work on since we started talking a few weeks ago. I feel like I am talking with a close, wise friend every day that I can trust to point me in the right direction. I have attempted counseling several times in the past, but this is the first time I have felt that I am really connecting with my counselor and making progress towards my goals. Thank you so much to Chelsey and BetterHelp!

Chelsey responds wonderfully in terms of in-session cues. I mentioned I liked small, comprehensive steps and she responded by validating that and bolstering with more concrete, definitive steps while also honoring my feelings and where I was with the process.

Written on Jul 24, 2017 after therapy with Chelsey for 2 weeks on issues concerning trauma and abuse

It's too soon for me to have a fully formed opinion about Chelsey as a therapist. I like her so far. She is easy to communicate with and I have faith that we will do good work together. In the past, I have had therapists that I didn't want to open up with for various reasons, but nothing about Chelsey makes me hesitate to share. In my opinion, that is of the utmost importance.

Chelsey is the best! I couldn't have a better match. She is so in tune with my needs and always compassionate and understanding. She's always looking for solutions to help me and never gets impatient when I want to change the game plan. She also checks in with me frequently when she hasn't heard from me, but never pressures me to respond in a certain time frame. I know Chelsey really cares and wants to be my advocate, and I feel so lucky to have found her!

Chelsey has a really relaxed and informal approach that makes her really easy to talk to. She also really responds to the things I say so that I feel we're actually having a conversation instead of just asking me all sorts of questions. She also includes some personal details about her life, so it's easier for me to view her as a real person who can understand and empathize instead of just being words on a screen.
