Approach to Counselling
Chelsea’s approach to therapy is individualized to the client and pulls primarily from existential, feminist, and person-centered approaches. She strongly believes that whatever a person brings to therapy is important to explore and she is committed to ensuring that they feel deeply seen and understood. She works collaboratively to help clients take a deep look at their values, feelings, and experiences so they can make wholehearted decisions. She is passionate about helping clients cultivate self-compassion and acceptance while also navigating towards the changes they are hoping for.
