Chelsea Winder


8 years of experience

I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 10 years of field experience. I specialize in clients with depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationship issues but have worked with clients with numerous mental health and life struggles including parenting issues, bipolar, self-harm, grief/loss, and much more. I know starting therapy can feel scary and overwhelming so I strive to provide a warm, welcoming therapeutic environment. A strong relationship is the most important thing to me during the therapeutic process. Once that is established then we can focus on the work that needs to be done.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I always want my clients to feel welcome and accepted when working with me. I want clients to feel comfortable because oftentimes they are sharing very personal information and I always want to be respectful of that. Once clients feel safe and respected I want them to take away ideas that challenge their thinking. Additionally, I want clients to leave with skills that help make them feel better about themselves and improve their life.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I tailor the therapeutic approach that I use based on the needs of the individual client. Therapy is not a one size fits all and I don't believe in getting stuck in one certain therapy type. Some approaches that I draw from are cognitive behavioral therapy, strengths perspective, solution-focused therapy, client-focused therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. No matter what approach I may use, I always look at my clients with a strengths perspective framework.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I feel my biggest strength is building a positive therapeutic relationship with clients. The relationship is so important to the therapeutic process and the only way the clients can feel safe to explore what’s going on. I mostly work with clients with depression and anxiety, as well as trauma but I very worked with clients with many mental health struggles. I meet clients where they are at.
