Grounded to My Core
three-six months, private coaching
A high touch 3 or 6 month coaching container
We'll walk together to revolutionize your mental wellness - to bridge the gap between mental health and personal growth so that you can
move from feeling anxious, constantly questioning yourself, and riddled with “shoulds”
to e m b o d i e d, trusting and confident as you create the life you truly desire.
Now is the time to step into your fullness, to explore the depths of who you are, to choose the life you want to lead, and to allow yourself to be supported along the way.
Hi! I'm so thrilled that you've found yourself here. The first thing to share is a loving reminder...
It's possible - The life you can see for yourself where you feel grounded, calm, confident and empowered.
Even when it feels hard to see for yourself, I know deep in my soul that it's there for you.
Right now you may be wading through uncertainty, friction or frustration. Maybe a lot is changing or you're questioning just about everything, feeling stuck or stagnant. Anxiety is on the rise and you just can't seem to manage the stress. You shouldn't expect yourself to know how to navigate it all on your own!
Life while learning who you are as an "adult" can feel confusing, weird, overwhelming AF, and d i s c o u r a g i n g!
Transitions and change can be hard at any stage of life, but especially when you're trying to "figure out" every area of your life all at once. There are so many ups, downs and new scenarios to navigate that no one ever really warned you about.
You were painted a picture that if you went to school and succeeded in college, you'd have everything set when it was time to enter "the real world." Ya, I hear you! You've been guided through everything you should be doing up until now. Suddenly you're left with tons of questions, so many different options and you're supposed to somehow just "know" what to do.
For most of us, that isn't at all how things play out... Cue the paralyzing self doubt, self hatred, anxiety driven, unhealthy life approach.
I've sat with thousands of clients in their darkest moments as they question everything about themselves, the world, who they want to be, and how they can go about getting there.
I want you to know that how you feel matters, what you do in your life, of course, is important. This is an invitation to meet yourself in the here and now.
In my work with clients, as we journey together, we will:
- meet in the in-betweens, the nuances and dualities of life,
- make space to honestly be with and look at what feels hard, challenging and confusing,
- remind you that you can receive support at any time, you don't have to wait to deem yourself “bad” enough,
- open up your desire for something more, something different,
- help you tap into your truth and find the direction you've been longing for
It’s all allowed and welcome here, all intricate parts of you!
And actually, life gets to feel amazing when you are able to release a lot of the unhelpful, unrealistic bull shit you may have adopted from the world around you and past experiences you’ve had.
I use a blend of psychology, therapeutic and coaching techniques to support you with a holistic, whole person approach.
We're looking at all parts of you - what has brought you to where you are now, what's happening currently,
and where you'd like to grow. It's a journey with yourself.
You will leave this experience a different person than when you begin.
You will see yourself and your life from a new perspective.
You will feel deeply connected to what matters to you, and how you can use that to guide the decisions of your life, as you learn to quiet the noise around you.
You will have a better understanding of yourself, as well as the tangible and realistic tools that help you along the way.
Here's what coaching actually looks like...
It's a tranformative experience where together we'll take a look at your life as a whole. What's working? What's not working? Where are you feeling held back? What more are you needing to feel aligned, connected and fulfilled?
We'll meet privately via video chat in session to unpack the hard and confusing things in life as you build a life you truly, truly love. It's a welcoming space where we'll work through the tools, practices and develop the skills that will help you move and transform.
Whether you're working on managing anxiety differently, finding more of who you are, moving through a big transition, changing your career or relationship status completely, setting healthy boundaries with difficult people, building more self confidence and self worth, or improving lifestyle habits that help you feel connected, healthy and at peace... we can work on it. It's often the small details that make up a life!
There's no pressure, and certainly no "shoulds."
No judgement but the opportunity to flesh out your frustrations and fears.
It's the accountability you've been lacking and the space you've been needing to create your own happy, fulfilling life!
This is how you develop that self confidence and self worth you've been craving. It's your evolution and expansion.

Oh, and you'll get me,
I hope by now you're really starting to understand that you don't exist just to suck it up and get by. I believe in my core that it is possible for you to live life in a way that has you feeling grounded, fulfilled, easeful and confident.
I'm here to support you in revolutionizing your mental well-being and growth while cultivating the most powerful relationship with yourself.
Throughout my years of training both as a therapist and certified life coach, I've sat with thousands of clients as they find clarity around who they are and how they wish to be in the world.
I promise to show up each and everyday for you, navigating stuck points, managing the uncertainty of it all and celebrating huge wins with you. Imagine what it would be like if 6 months from now you felt clear, happy and grounded in your life, in who you are?
Every individual journey is unqiue,
here are a few
- Expanding your relationship with self tremendously - self compassion, self understanding, self trust, self confidence
- Releasing shoulds, unhelpful expectations and forcing from your day to day
- Learning to step out of “busy” so you can hear yourself and ditch a cycle of burn out
- Finding your voice - to set boundaries, to connect deeper, to share more of yourself with the world
- Epic emotional intelligence - no more hiding and running from the emotions you feel. Instead, you get to be with them, move with them, learn from them, grow with them.
- Finding more ease, joy and lightness
- Letting go of the old (patterns, beliefs, relationships) so that you can step deeper into your truth and fullness
- Finding genuine clarity, authenticity and freedom (in any area of your life like relationships, career, yourself, your body, etc)

You might not know exactly *why* you want to hire a coach, but follow your intuition. Chelsea has changed my life in ways she'll never know. She's the ultimate space-holder, the perfect-question asker, and a supportive mirror when you need a reminder of who you are and what you're capable of. I hope everyone (yes, *everyone*) gets a chance to work with this woman.
I now have Chelsea's voice of reason playing in my head when tough stuff comes up, so that's been helpful 🙂 In all seriousness, un-attaching my worth/value from others' opinions of me has set me free. Building a home within myself and knowing that as long as I am safe and held in my body (thru self-love and self-compassion), I am unconditionally ok. This looks like mindfulness practices and boundary setting and honoring *whatever* is coming up. Not assigning things as good or bad, but allowing myself to feel it all. Damn, it all sounds so cliché now, but embodying those things IS THE WORK.
I am so different than I was 15 months ago, before I started working with Chelsea. My self-worth, self-trust, self-compassion, and self-love all play a beautiful role in my life now. Life feels easier now, living for *me* and not doing what I think I'm supposed to be doing.
I think one of Chelsea's biggest skills is asking the perfect question to guide you towards a major fucking realization. I am not saying she's telling me what to do, not at all. But through these questions she helps me realize some big shit I otherwise had blinders on about. I wish I had the words to accurately describe how transformational my time with Chelsea has been. I believe every single human could/would benefit from individual sessions with this woman. How do I even tell them, "it's gonna be uncomfortable af, but a million percent worth it"?!
It would be really easy to point to the external changes I've made in my life over the past 6 months--
moving into my own space, having a positive dating experience, expanding my career--and say "look at how much I've grown!"
and I have! I am in no, way, shape, or form trying to downplay the external changes because they are all goals that I set myself in our working together and I am incredibly excited about each of those milestones.
But I know that the internal growth that is what has allowed for each of those external goals to be achieved, and that is what I am most proud of and grateful for. I think the biggest things are that I have developed a more trusting relationship with myself and that I've become more confident in my communication with others, particularly with regard to boundaries.
Before working with Chelsea, my life was me unknowingly living everyday in survival mode, using whatever worked (healthy or unhealthy) to get by. It included a whole lot of ignoring emotions, ALL the negative self talk, and coping skills/self care practices that weren't actually working.
I was hesitant that if I met with anybody I was going to have to be vulnerable for anything to improve. The HELL YES was when I told Chelsea that, and there was absolutely no judgement, and continued to be no judgement even when I was making really poor decisions at the time. With a previous therapist I didn't get a no judgement feeling and no-showed after three sessions.
Chelsea laughs with me a lot which makes the whole process easier and allows me to laugh at myself (when its appropriate of course). It helps me not dread talking about the hard stuff. I never really paid attention to more holistic practices as an implementation to everyday life but it has been SO helpful. The fact that it's little things I can do everyday has brought a lot of empowerment. Chelsea isn't afraid to call me on my shit. "But is that really fine?" Is something I ask myself a lot now. The email access is really nice because it helps with accountability, like if I know I need to talk through something but I'm nervous I won't commit and bring it up. It's a really great added support if I am really struggling with something.
My life is still hard and messy and complicated for sure, but I feel so much better than I did a year ago this time. I'm way less anxious, getting to know myself more, and actively working on living a life that I enjoy and I'm not just trying to get through. A few months ago I couldn't have set boundaries like I have, I couldn't allow myself to feel anger or sadness, and I wasn't taking any risks or opening up to people. Now I definitely feel all of the feelings and self-growth is possible in a way that I didn't even consider before. I'm also able to be more gentle with myself and that wasn't in the realm of possibilities before. And again, I'm able to be grateful now for the things I do have and what's to come while I continue working.
Before working with Chelsea my life felt stagnant and dull. I felt like I could be doing so much more, but I didn't know how to get there...or where to even start.
Chelsea is extremely easy to talk to and really open/accepting/loving, so I never felt like I had to hold back or sugarcoat things when I was working with her. I also really valued her insight, which was SO powerful and spot-on. I've been in and out of therapy for years, and I can honestly say our one-on-one conversations were more productive than a lot of my therapy experiences.
Now I dedicate more time to self-care, I've solidified routines that work really well for me, and I'm more motivated to do things like apply for jobs (I've now had 4 interviews total!), sign up for volunteering (my first shift at the FoodBank is next week), and invest time in hobbies (I picked up rock climbing recently and love it). I'm a lot kinder to myself and have a lot more self-compassion. My self-confidence has increased (I'm no longer as nervous to approach people or try new things), and I'm more aware than ever that self-awareness and insight can only get you so far...the rest comes from ACTION and doing things that often feel uncomfortable but actually really help us out in the long term.
I’m more open to new people, places, and things. I’ve met friends. I’ve gone on dates. I’ve tried a lot of activities that would’ve otherwise intimidated me. I’m more outgoing…the list goes on and on. I feel like a better, happier, more optimistic, more self-aware version of myself, and I can genuinely say I’m on the path towards loving who I am, despite my flaws. It’s a long journey, that’s for sure, but now that I’m on the path, it doesn’t feel nearly as scary. And so much of that is because of Chelsea, so THANK YOU!!
In the months before we began working together, I started having anxiety attacks for the first time. Anxiety runs in my family, and I knew I wanted to get on top of it while it was still new for me. I really started feeling the pressures of adult life and going full-time with entrepreneurship. I definitely felt scared about opening up about these topics and feelings! I had worked with one coach before, but it was more nutrition focused. I had met Chelsea once in person and followed her on Instagram. I just loved the content she was putting out there. It all rang true for me and I felt like she understood what I was feeling and how to help. I also appreciated her background in therapy.
Chelsea is a treasure trove of techniques and knowledge about stress, anxiety, and self-criticism! I can throw any thought, feeling, or situation at her and she has so many helpful and supportive things to say or suggestions of things I can try. I've created a toolkit for myself of all of the methods & tools we've talked through, and I reference it often. Chelsea also always offers me a new perspective, even if it's a hard one for me to swallow! Most importantly, our sessions feel so comfortable- Chelsea puts me completely at ease when we're chatting about not-so-easy topics!
I am better at communicating my feelings to the important people around me- something I have struggled with my whole life! I check myself on my self-criticism and recognize what's going on there much more often. I've started using meditation, movement, journaling, and self-care that feels really good for me daily. I feel so much more in-tune with how I'm feeling and what's going on inside every single day. I feel more empowered to handle my anxiety and stress when it comes up. I have a more positive, experimental perspective with work-life balance.
Chelsea is incredible at what she does! Working with her has truly changed my life in so many ways. She has given me so many tools and has been the most supportive ear. If you are feeling the pressures of young adult life, don't hesitate to work with Chelsea!
We don't wait until we're super sick to start seeing a medical doctor, do we? I like to think of our mental and emotional well-being in the same way! There's no such thing as "bad enough." Chances are if you're having the inkling that it might be helpful to elicit some external support, there's a reason for that. We don't have a lot of space in the hustle of everyday life to think about our lives intentionally, to explore different ideas and to process through the hard parts. If you're ready to look within and get to know yourself really well, if you're ready to be challenged, if you're ready to feel more confident and assertive in your life, coaching is THE place!
Here's the thing, I know this is a financial investment. I also know that money and finances are a significant aspect of our well-being! I can remember how terrifying it was the first time I made a big investment in myself and my well-being.
Now, I can't promise you that after this program, life will be absolutely perfect and each day will be absolute bliss - but I can promise you that you will have the tools you need to navigate the consant ups and downs that life throws your way. Imagine you could actually trust yourself to handle whatever came your way? When anxiety popped up, you know how to navigate it in a really healthy and loving way. When you don't get the job you were hoping for, you know how to love on yourself and pick yourself back up to continue moving forward. You finally have the confidence to make the social circle and support network you've been craving, etc.
The possibilities are truly endless when you know how to approach your overall well-being, when you feel grounded, empowered and loved. What would that be worth for you? 6 months from now, this could be YOU!
I started my career as a traditional psychotherapist and I have so much love and appreciation for that field. I have my masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Johns Hopkins University and am a National Certified Counselor. I often infuse the skills I learned as a therapist with my coaching approach. I also received training in coaching and am a Board Certified Coach.
Here are the main differences between coaching and therapy:
Coaching is present and future focused. In the work, we'll take a look at where you are right now and where you'd like to be. You'll engage in long term thinking and goal setting - you'll learn how to hold yourself accountable! My approach is science based and holistic. We'll look at all facets of your life and well-being to help your grow and develop as you move forward.
Therapy is often focused on healing the past, processing trauma and unhelpful repeated behavior. The focus is centered around the past. That being said, in coaching we will still explore parts of the past as that makes us who we are, but the sole purpose of the work is on the present/future!
- Going from daily panic attacks to less than one/month
- Changing from a dead end job to one that feels fulfilling and inspiring
- Moving from a city where I felt stuck and limited to the city of my dreams
- Finding the partner I've always dreamed of while honoring my needs and values
- Developing true self compassion and kindness. Learning how to be nice to myself which makes navigating difficult moments so much easier.
- Debilitating anxiety now feels managable and I have many different ways to work with it
- I have clarity around who I am and what I want for my life rather than feeling overwhelmed by all the expectations and pressure from outside sources
Yes. I offer monthly payment options and am happy to chat with you about this!
