Meet Chelsey

"I have always known I would be in the helping profession from a young age. I wasn’t sure exactly what that would look like, but as time has passed, I have found exactly what my calling is. Helping to guide women to see their strengths has been something that inspires me and motivates me to help others. I am in awe of the strength and desire of those who I am privileged enough to work with and find such encouragement when my clients also see that glimmer of success and greatness." 

Life is full of wonder, expectation, excitement, and failure. Every experience shapes who you are and

who you want to be. These experiences can be positive, but they can also negatively affect you too.

The incredible thing is that you can grow, learn and become more from these experiences. My passion is working alongside young women who are seeking to understand their strengths, their gifts, and their abilities to become the best version of themselves. 

 

I come from a collegiate hockey background. Playing competitive sport brought a piece of perfectionism into my life that was impossible to obtain. The idea to work harder, train harder, be better, be smarter, spend more time at the rink, and go to the gym more was the expectation and the norm around me. Then add family commitments, friends away from the rink, partner expectations- it’s a lot, and caused an internal struggle that I constantly grappled with. By the end of my 5th year of collegiate hockey and university, I was done, and not sure if I would play ever again, or go back to school. This experience allowed me to recognize how many other women have been and are currently in a similar position. 

 

Burn out and the expectation of being “on” all the time is a lot for anyone to take. We live in a social media frenzied world where the expectation is perfection, yet perfection is unattainable. Navigating the expectations that you place on yourself and the expectations others place on you, makes for a juggling act that’s challenging to balance. 

I am currently a provisional psychologist and being supervised by Melissa Foster, R.Psych. (owner of Dragonfly). I have experience working with depression, anxiety, domestic violence, family conflict, and trauma (and am trained in EMDR - a therapy used to process trauma). I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in individual, couples, and family counselling.

If you think I would be a good fit feel free to book an initial session

or get in touch to book a free phone consultation.
