Space for Cultivating Authenticity Through Meaningful Connection

Family Therapy
Eating Disorder Treatment

Whether you’re struggling in your relationships, with your mood or anxiety, disordered eating, or anything else - you’re not meant to do it alone. We come across a lot of challenges as humans, and sometimes things just feel hard. It's my belief that our connections and relationships help us move through these harder times and make them less painful, while giving us the courage to make any necessary changes.

I see therapy as a space for honest, compassionate, and collaborative dialogue. Through our relationship, we can create understanding of your past and present, while beginning to help you write an empowering narrative moving forward. Together, we can find a balance between practicing acceptance, and enacting change – identifying skills and strategies along the way that will best work for you.​ I show up as myself in the therapy room - bringing humanity, integrating humor, story telling, and metaphors. I’m spirited, imperfect, and whole – hopefully allowing you to be your whole self with me.



“Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.”

About Me

I'm Chelsea (she/her)! 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 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, gardening, hosting friends and family, and embracing my creativity through art 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 have a passion for working with teens, young adults, women, and members of the LGBTQ+ community.

I aim to create an environment supportive to people with all body sizes/shapes, abilities, genders, sexual orientations, 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!
