About

Chelsey

One of my favorite quotes sums up my passion for counseling: “Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you’ll be able to see further”. We all need help sometimes to see further. You don’t have to have everything figured out – you just have to be brave enough to take the first step!

Chelsey’s Story

narcissistic abuse therapist

My life’s purpose is to teach people the skills & strategies to create a narcissist-resistant mindset and to lead introverts/empaths to a thriving, happy and confident life.

As an INFJ and Enneagram 1, I’m no stranger to feeling out of place and trying to reach the ever-elusive “good enough” standard.

I spent many years not listening to my intuition. I allowed other people’s expectations to dictate the choices I made.

On the outside, I was ‘successful’. I started college at 16, graduated with my Master’s in Counseling at 22, and started my own coaching and counseling business at 23.

I graduated with honors and finished my grad program with a 4.0 and a full-time job offer.

I was consistently recognized as one of the top performers at my work, received glowing recommendations from clients, and admiration from my peers.

Story

My life’s purpose is to teach people the skills & strategies to create a narcissist-resistant mindset and to lead introverts/empaths to a thriving, happy and confident life.

As an INFJ and Enneagram 1, I’m no stranger to feeling out of place and trying to reach the ever-elusive “good enough” standard.

I spent many years not listening to my intuition. I allowed other people’s expectations to dictate the choices I made.

On the outside, I was ‘successful’. I started college at 16, graduated with my Master’s in Counseling at 22, and started my own coaching and counseling business at 23.

I graduated with honors and finished my grad program with a 4.0 and a full-time job offer.

I was consistently recognized as one of the top performers at my work, received glowing recommendations from clients, and admiration from my peers.

But there was a problem…

 

 

But there was a problem…

I had overwhelming anxiety, persistent self-doubts, a serious perfectionistic streak, and a relentless inner critic.

I second-guessed almost all of my decisions. Ignored my gut feelings about career opportunities and relationship choices. And felt like an imposter in my own life.

I felt ‘out of sync’ with where I was in life. I knew I should be doing more – but I felt stagnant. And no matter how many self-development books I read, nothing worked.

Don’t get me wrong – I always have (& still do) love what I do.

But I couldn’t live out a truly purposeful career or choose healthy relationships without addressing this nagging feeling of ‘not enough-ness’.

It didn’t happen overnight – but with consistent self-reflection, journaling, and inner work, I emerged with a newfound sense of self and set a theme for that year: Listen to Your Intuition.

That year became the turning point for me – the point at which I no longer made decisions because of what I thought I should do. Instead…

  • When I got an unsettling gut feeling about someone, I listened.
  • When I knew I needed to walk away from toxic relationships (no matter how painful), I did it.
  • And when I felt myself on the edge of overwhelm and burnout, I rested.

That year changed everything. So now…

  • I know exactly how to avoid & set boundaries with narcissistic/toxic people.
  • I trust my intuition instead of letting ruminating thoughts take over.
  • I know what it looks like & feels like to have truly healthy, fulfilling, & meaningful relationships.

My “Why”

I didn’t come to specialize in narcissistic abuse and relationship trauma by accident. I do this work because I personally know the intense pain, constant confusion, debilitating anxiety, and gut-wrenching sorrow of toxic relationships.

I know what it’s like to not know how to move forward – to feel paralyzed by the weight of grief… I also know what it’s like to know in your gut what you have to do, but to feel absolutely terrified to do it. 

I’ve been the narcissistically abused and betrayed partner. The child hurt by a toxic parent’s emotional neglect and the spouse of an unfaithful partner.

But amidst and despite the pain, I held on to what I believe to be the truth: God can make all things work together for good. 

I am incredibly blessed now to have a wonderful husband, loving stepson, and solid sense of self. 

And I aim to use everything I’ve learned and experienced, both personally and professionally, to help my clients heal faster and come back stronger.
