Chelsea Gibson M.S.Ed., M.Phil.Ed. LMHC
My name is Chelsea and I provide individual counseling services to adult women in Seattle and Washington State. I became a counselor because I’ve always been drawn toward authentic spaces that honor emotions, relationships, and the powerful sense of being fully present with another person. I believe that all of us hard-wired for connection, and that powerful changes happen when we have a chance to be known honestly and accepted by another person.
I emphasize the importance of safety, security, and availability in the therapeutic relationship, and I aim to be a trustworthy person so that you may become ready to move deeper and challenge yourself in your path toward recovery. My work with clients is centered around authenticity and humility, and I love that I can offer a safe and protected relationship where you can share and explore the thoughts, feelings, and experiences that you may have not had words for before.
I hold a license as a mental health counselor in the state of Washington (LMHC LH61194657) and I have my Master’s in Counseling and Mental Health Services and Master’s in Professional Counseling from the University of Pennsylvania.
Prior to opening this practice, my counseling experience has been in community mental health agencies and school settings. I am constantly reading, training, and learning new ways to connect with and help clients heal and grow. In our work together I will honor your goals and knowledge of yourself, and I will also share what I’ve learned to help propel you further toward becoming more grounded, confident, and connected to yourself and the important people in your life. If you want to know more about what it’s like to be in therapy with me, you can read more about individual therapy, or contact me to talk directly.
I know what it’s like to desperately need change and how hard it is to dare to hope that life could get better. I know how painful it is to feel disconnected, confused, stuck, or hopeless, and I recognize the courage it takes to reach out for help. I want to be here with you and remind you that change and healing are possible, and you don’t have to do it alone. If you are ready to be heard, accepted, and supported in making the changes you need, contact me and we can get started.
