Chelsea’s counseling approaches and techniques are client-centered, and she utilizes eclectic and integrative techniques tailored to client’s needs. Her belief is that the client is the expert of their own life and knows what they want and need because each journey is different. She believes in creating an atmosphere where clients can communicate their feelings with confidence and know that they are being understood and not judged. Chelsea believes the client plays an active role in their healing to allow for the greatest amount of growth and progress. She also uses different techniques intended to challenge cognitive distortions and negative thinking patterns to facilitate healing and help the client to better understand themselves and how they play a part in the healing process.
