Chelsey’s Approach

I take a very collaborative, compassionate approach to the counseling process because I’ve seen that the most important aspect of healing is a safe, supportive relationship. I create a space where you can feel seen, heard, understood, guided, and supported. Ultimately, I want all of my clients to know and feel… you’re never really alone. I’m here with you! I believe in helping my clients leave each session with a sense of clarity, hope, empowerment, and belief that positive change is always possible. I also understand that when you have challenging, heavy, or delicate issues, you want to open up to someone who shares similar values and beliefs. As a Christian and psychotherapist, I offer sound therapeutic solutions that complement a Bible-based perspective on life.

Narcissistic Abuse

Do you feel consistently belittled, criticized, or invalidated by a partner, family member, friend, or co-worker? Do you find yourself always trying to “make sense of” your relationship while also feeling like you’re “going crazy”? When you’ve experienced narcissistic abuse, it can feel like no one understands. Your feelings often swing between confusion and guilt to anxiety and depression. It’s not uncommon to feel like you’re in a fog or wonder if somehow you are the cause of your relationship issues. I guide people to find a way back to themselves by helping them feel seen, understood, validated, empowered, and whole.

Trauma-Informed Therapy

While understanding and insight are certainly great places to start, many people feel “stuck” at some point in the therapeutic process. This is often because you’re trying to “think” your way to healing. Trauma-informed therapy recognizes the complex ways trauma can impact your life, mind, and body, and makes your psychological safety a top priority in the healing journey. I help my clients find or restore their sense of safety in themselves, their relationships, and in the world at large.

Anxiety

Are ruminating thoughts ruining your life? Do you find yourself cycling through a never-ending list of “what ifs”? Or perhaps you just feel on edge, hypervigilant, stuck in people-pleasing behaviors that you know aren’t good for you, but you can’t seem to stop. Anxiety can show up in many different forms, but the root is often the same: a sense of uneasiness, discontent, worry, and fear. If you’re tired of putting on the “I’m OK” smile to the world, while feeling like you’re barely getting by on the inside, I can help! I specialize in helping people work through anxiety triggers and create a sense of safety and trust within their own mind and body.

Betrayed Partners of Sex Addicts

Whether you’ve had a long-term relationship with someone who struggles with a porn or sex addiction, or your partner has been unfaithful, you know the intense pain that betrayals can cause. These kinds of relationship wounds often leave many layers of hurt, anger, grief, shame, and loss. As a Certified Partner Trauma Therapist, I help betrayed partners process these hurts and learn how to set healthy boundaries, make self-honoring choices, and gain new hope.

Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Complex post-traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD) refers to the PTSD-like symptoms that occur after intense or long-term trauma, usually relational trauma. PTRS can develop in response to intense or repeated experiences of psychological, emotional, physical, and/or sexual abuse/neglect, like narcissistic abuse, cheating, discovering/trying to cope with a partner’s sex/porn addiction, being constantly criticized, rejected, or abandoned by a parent, and other interpersonal abuses. I specialize in helping people understand and heal their fears, anxieties, triggers, ruminations, obsessive thinking, hypervigilance, and other distressing symptoms, while teaching them how to feel safe in their own body and develop a strong inner compass to quickly recognize healthy vs toxic people.

Introverts

Have you been called shy, too quiet, arrogant, aloof, cold, distant, or rude? Are you told to speak up, stop thinking so much, and get out of your head? Do you often feel drained by small talk or anxious about meeting new people or going to unfamiliar places? Do you dread big group meetings or experience your mind going blank if you’re caught off guard? If so, there’s nothing wrong with you – you’re probably just an introvert! As an introvert and INFJ, I’m well-acquainted with all of these experiences and understand how difficult they can be! That’s why I help introverts learn to know, accept, embrace, utilize, and advocate for their strengths in empowered and authentic ways!

Empaths

Do you often “feel” or “know” things before they’re said? Can you easily “tune in” to someone else’s energy or mood, almost as if you’re wearing their emotions? Do you find it difficult to tell the difference between others’ feelings and your feelings? Have you been told you’re “too sensitive” or need to “toughen up”? If so, you’re probably an empath! And without knowing how to protect your energy, you’ll feel overwhelmed, frazzled, or even numb. I help empaths and highly sensitive persons understand why they feel so deeply, embrace these traits as a gift, and set healthy boundaries to let the good people in and keep the toxic ones out.

Children’s Issues

Does your child often seem worried or anxious? Has your child experienced the loss of a loved one? Are they struggling to make friends, share their feelings, or work through big emotions or changes? One of the most challenging aspects of parenting is seeing your child struggle and not knowing how to help. Sometimes as adults, we try to “reason with” or “talk through” issues with our kids. However, if you watch a group of kids for just a few minutes, you’ll see that talking isn’t their main form of communication – playing is. As a Registered Play Therapist, I use specific interventions to help your child learn effective strategies for processing emotions, building self-esteem, and growing social skills.
