Chelsea received a Bachelor’s degree in English Language and Literature from West Virginia University and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from Georgia College & State University. Since 2014, she has worked as a writing teacher and advisor for college students in need of academic, social, and emotional support. From her experiences as an educator and writer, she understands the vulnerability needed to share one’s story and the importance of the narratives we are taught about ourselves.
It takes immense courage to explore one’s personal experiences, and everyone deserves a safe, supportive environment to take that journey. From her own healing, Chelsea understands the importance of a strong therapeutic relationship, and she believes the best way to foster that connection is to meet each client with compassion, respect, empathy, and warmth. Chelsea believes everyone has the capacity for growth and healing, and she strives to create a collaborative space where clients can be themselves without fear or judgment. You are the expert on your life, and Chelsea is committed to working with you, learning from your experiences, moving at your pace, and finding an approach that is comfortable for you.
Outside of the clinic, Chelsea enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and her dog Barney, reading epic fantasy, writing, baking, and finding time for herself. She loves to be outside and feels most at peace near the ocean.
