About me

Hello,

I am Kelsey Washington, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) from Slidell, LA. I have been providing counseling services since 2012. My interactions with clients include unconditional positive regard, empathy, and genuineness. My counseling background spans from addiction to day-to-day struggles of anxiety and depression, from issues with binge eating to building on life skills for adults, to working with teens transitioning to young adults to social skill development in children.

Seeking help is a demonstration of strength, and as a trained professional counselor, I am thankful for the opportunity to work with you.

Kelsey is kind, compassionate, understanding, and a pleasure to talk to. She has personal anecdotes that have been meaningful to me. She validates my feelings, and helps me to understand my worth and that my happiness is the most important thing at this time in my life. I'm retired and have spent the last 40 years taking care of others and I'm having a hard time transitioning from that to taking care of myself. So her support and encouragement are very helpful.

I have only been in therapy with Kelsey for a few weeks but she is fantastic. She listens very well and has great input but only after she has heard your concerns and issues. She also has great empathy. I am looking forward to my ongoing sessions with her! She has already helped me in the short time we've had and I feel very confident that the progress I've made so far will continue.

Kelsey has been such an amazing therapist. This is my first experience at taking therapy and she has been very patient with me as I am not the most forthcoming in expressing myself. I highly recommend her as a therapist.
