LIVING CITY COUNSELING
Growth, Healing, & Self-Discovery
We come across a lot of experiences as humans, and sometimes life just feels hard. Whether you’re struggling with a specific issue, or one of the general challenges of being a human - you’re not meant to do it alone, and the therapeutic relationship can be a powerful tool to help.
Therapy with me is a co-created, safe space. I offer warm, direct, and compassionate dialogue that welcomes all of your experiences and emotions. I can help navigate balancing the needs for understanding, acceptance, and action in your life – collaborating around individualized and practical tools along the way. I show up as myself in the therapy room- integrating humor, story telling, and metaphors. I’m spirited, imperfect, and whole – hopefully allowing you to be your whole self with me.
My clients are mostly teens and young adults through individual therapy, folks on their journey in Eating Disorder recovery, people surrounding the experience of infertility, pregnancy, parenthood, and loss, as well as families.
My aspiration for our work together is that you find self-compassion, curiosity, and healing, and that your life and relationships are enriched as a result.
Hi, I'm Chelsea (she/her) and I'm glad you're here. I was born and raised in the Los Angeles area, coming to Portland in 2016. I feel so much gratitude for the greenery of Oregon, and try to get outside with my partner, babe, and pup any chance I get. I love the food scene in Portland, and make a point of trying new restaurants often. I love watching (Dodger) baseball, learning about new things, hosting friends and family, and embracing my creativity through gardening and design.
I hold a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Southern California. I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, as well as a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Oregon. I've spent a good portion of my career working in Eating Disorder treatment higher levels of care and came to private practice in 2019. I'm currently pursuing certification in Perinatal Mental Health.
I aim to create an environment supportive to people with all body sizes/shapes, abilities, genders, sexual orientations, relationship statuses, races and ethnicities, and religious affiliations. I am committed to anti-racist work in my life and the therapy room. I'm also learning how to continuously do better here, and I'm open to your feedback!
Although it's worth it, beginning therapy can be scary. If you have questions, or are interested in starting therapy with me, please reach out using the form below. Generally email is the best way to reach me initially. I typically schedule a free 20-minute initial call to determine if we'd like to set-up a first appointment.
