About Me

Hello,
My name is Chelsie Braden, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Florida with over 3 years of experience in the mental health field. I have worked with diverse clients with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, domestic violence relationship issues, career challenges, addiction, trauma, and grief and loss.

My counseling style is warm and compassionate. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines client-centered therapy, solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness. We will also work together to identify your strengths and help to find ways to use them to help create what you want and need in life.

My goal is to offer a safe space to be open without fear of judgment while providing guidance and the support you need throughout life’s challenges. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Chelsie has been great so far in listening to my problems and suggesting ways for me to confront them.

Chelsie has helped me work towards my personal goals and helped me determine additional struggles I was not initially aware of. I look forward to our weekly calls and greatly benefit from her counseling.

Chelsie is amazing. She is very welcoming and I felt very comfortable opening up to her from day one. She listens to my comments and provides her perspective and feedback and gives great advice and solutions on how to improve. I have learned a lot in only a few sessions, I can wait to see the improvement after doing more sessions with her. Thank you Chelsie! ,

I can’t say enough good things about Chelsie. She’s great at making me feel comfortable and reassured. She helps me develop different techniques and ways to change my thought patterns so that I can work towards improvement. I know I have a long way to go, but I know she’s the right person for the job.

Chelsie has a breadth of knowledge and experience that I am lucky to gain every session. She is an amazing soundboard with easy and attainable solutions. I’m very happy to have found her as my Therapist!

Chelsie is very personable and knowledgable. She listens and offers tools to assist you in getting the support tailored for your needs. I enjoy our sessions and don't mind the homework (journals, worksheets, etc). Her guidance has helped me make changes in my day-to-day routine in just a few short weeks. I am more aware of behaviors I want to change and feeling more confident in my ability to do so. Thank you!

I started seeing Chelsie for a few months ago when I was having panic attacks multiple times a week. She immediately helped me find tools to manage my anxiety, which has dramatically decreased. More than that, Chelsea has guided me to insights that I hadn't considered on my own, and I am incredibly thankful for the growth I continue to experience.

Chelsie is a down to earth person and so easy to talk to. She understands that every person is different and not all techniques will work for them. She has helped me so much in just 1 month!

Chelsie Braden is a wonderful counselor. I absolutely love the sessions we’ve had so far and she’s offered me a lot of helpful material to work through my anxiety in between sessions. I highly recommend her.

They're very understanding and supportive. I didn't feel rushed or pressured to talk about what I wasn't ready for but I was encouraged to speak about what was on my mind

Chelsie helped me so much in these three weeks that Shes my counselor , by making me understand where my control is within my surroundings, my life as a mother , wife and friend and how to approach situations that I have no control of. Life can get very complicated to deal with and for someone like me who deals with anxiety it can get very frustrating but Chelsea helped me to find coping ways to avoid falling into this whole where all my panic and anxiety exists. She’s a wonderful counselor and I will recommend her on better help. Chelsea is always available to me which gives me a sense of relief knowing that when I feel anxious, I have her to hear me out.
