Description

Hey everyone! My name is Chelsea, and I'm a licensed clinical social worker in Chicago. My passion is to see Black and brown communities well. Influenced by my experiences as a black woman who grew up in urban contexts, I aim to help people from marginalized communities thrive.

I have worked extensively with teens, young adults, and adults from various cultural and ethnic backgrounds utilizing an integrative approach that mixes CBT, DBT, and ACT with motivational interviewing and brief psychodynamic interventions. With experience ranging from violence prevention services and school-based therapy to IOP and PHP hospital settings, I am confident I can hold whatever you bring to the session.

You can expect me to be present, non-judgmental, encouraging, creative, analytical, and flexible. Your feedback is valued throughout the therapeutic journey to ensure the space is yours. While we work at your pace, I don't shy away from difficult conversations, and we will collaborate to get you where YOU want to be. Therapy can seem like a heavy task, but I work to make sure we don't forget joy, laughter, and other positive aspects of life.

If you have tried therapy before and it didn't work, you are just starting therapy, or if you value a place to be heard and to reflect just as much as you appreciate tangible support and practical skills, contact me. Starting and continuing therapy takes courage, and I'm here to meet you where you're at as you are. All of who you are is welcome. I look forward to growing together.

I work exclusively through online therapy at the moment with individuals and groups. I currently do not except insurance and charge 150 per individual session with sliding scale available. For groups, I charge 25-40 per session. I am working to accept insurance in the near future. Please reach out to learn more about my sliding scale to accommodate your financial need.
