About Chelsea

"We're all just walking each other home."  -- Ram Dass

For more than a decade, I've practiced mindfulness meditation and other experiential modalities to support my own healing journey.

My training as a Couples and Family Therapist has shaped my view of clients as unique individuals who are intimately connected to their communities, their cultures, and to the greater societies in which they live.

My education and professional background help me to support therapy and coaching clients from an integrative & systemic perspective, applying the powerful practices of mindfulness and trauma-responsive therapies. I currently teach meditation and offer workshops on mindful living, spiritual integrity, & co-creating healthy relationships. 

Clients can expect to guide their own sessions while I offer perspective, insights, and tools like mindfulness, Family Constellations, and practical self-regulation skills to bring movement back into parts of their lives that have felt stuck.

 

My favorite clients to work with are those who want to more deeply relate to and care for themselves, in order to have thriving relationships and healthier work-life balance. 

 

I am an animal-lover, nature-lover, and a professional artist with a deeply spiritual and creative orientation to life.

Family Constellations with Chelsea

What are Family Constellations?

Family constellations can take place in one-on-one sessions or in groups. Both forms offer a therapeutic process that explores the dynamics and relationships within one's family system. The group process involves a small group of people who come together to work on their own family issues, or their other personal struggles.

In a typical family constellation session facilitated by Chelsea, she will ask the participants to provide some basic information about their family systems and the specific issues they want to address. She will then guide the participants through a process of setting up a constellation, or a representation of their family system, using objects or people to represent family members.

Once the constellation is set up, she will guide the participants through a process of exploring the dynamics and relationships within the family system to gain insights previously unseen. In group sessions, this often involves asking a number of participants to step into the roles of different family members and to share their experiences and feelings with the rest of the group.

Family constellations can be very powerful as participants often find they are able to tap into deep emotions and insights about their family dynamics. This can be helpful for addressing a wide range of issues, including:

  1. Relationship issues: Family constellations can help participants to identify patterns in their relationships and to understand the impact that their family dynamics may be having on their current relationships.

  2. Trauma and abuse: Family constellations can help participants to explore the impact of past trauma or abuse within their family system and to find ways to heal and move forward.

  3. Emotional issues: Family constellations can help participants to identify and address deep-seated emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, and anger.

  4. Career and life purpose: Family constellations can help participants to identify patterns and influences within their family system that may be affecting their career or life purpose.

Overall, family constellations group work can be a powerful tool for self-discovery and personal growth. By exploring the dynamics and relationships within our family system, we can gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and our place in the world, and find ways to move forward with greater clarity, insight, and resilience.
