As Seen In:
What if I told you that you didn't have to be your own worst enemy? You have nothing to prove. You are enough, right now, mess + imperfections included.
Don't believe me? That's okay.
I know the mental battle you have with yourself week after week might feel like a never ending spiral.
I'm here to tell you that it's possible to have a healthy relationship with yourself, that you are capable, that there is so much power within you innately.
Maybe you were told you could have it all. The world was at your fingertips.
But now that you’re here, officially an "adult," (okay, maybe you’ve been one for awhile),
Why does the pressure to do it all feel so overwhelming? How come you never genuinely feel good enough?
Even if you’re playing by the rules of what adulthood "should" look like.
Even if you’re hitting all the milestones you "should" be hitting in your five year plan.
(Wait, do you even have a five year plan?!)
At this point, you know everyone's Instagram page is just a highlight reel. But it still feels like you're missing something.
My friend, it’s YOU!
Your true, confident self.
The one who’s intentional about living a life they love.
The one who can hold the duality of self compassion and self responsibility,
The one who knows how to handle change and transition with ease and acceptance.
The one who knows that no matter what they’ve accomplished so far, they’re already worthy and safe to be themselves.
It starts with building a foundation of strong emotional health.
Here’s what you should know about emotional health I hope you’ll release when it comes to your emotional health:
The word "should."
Whether it’s finding your dream career, making new friends, working through anxiety, finding your partner in life – there’s no one RIGHT way to do life. Filtering your beautiful life through someone else’s shoulds minimizes the magic you bring to this world.
The idea of "success."
The human experience is a continuum of ups and downs. Setting and reaching goals is important, but any “I’ve made it” moment is fleeting. Being able to be present in all moments – good or bad – is what ultimately makes our lives richer.
Trying to be happy all the time.
Pppffftttt. *eye roll* I’m sure as hell not here for that. As a human, you’ve got a wide range of emotions… and that’s a good thing! Learning how to experience them in a supportive way is key to your emotional health.
Foundations of You is the pathway to embodying the truth of who you are now, while discovering all that you can be.
Imagine how you’d feel if you:
- Knew how to walk yourself through anxiety or negative emotions without judgement
- Accepted ALL parts of yourself, even the ones you previously declared “icky.”
- Showed up as your most honest self, even when life feels challenging
- No longer felt the need to control errrrrryyyyythang
- Felt confident in setting and maintaining boundaries, even if they’re against the norms of your friend group or family members
- Knew you were capable of anything you set your mind to
- Trusted your intuition enough to let it guide you through new situations
- Could view any “triggering” issues from a place of empathy and love, without attachment
- Realized you’re already worthy of everything you have, want and are

CHECK OUT THESE CLIENT WINS...
There is no quick fix when you’re in the process of becoming you.
Believe me, I’ve tried to rush it. I’ve tried to resist it. But I found that when I embraced the journey, that’s when I finally empowered real change.
Hi, I’m Chelsea!
As a therapist, certified Life Coach and speaker, I’m on a mission to reduce the stigma around emotional well-being and mental health.
I spent years bogged down in my own shoulds and high expectations. In college, I switched majors too many times to count. As a young therapist and newly married military spouse, I thought I was checking off all the boxes for a fulfilling life, but instead I felt stuck, anxious and underwhelmed with my reality.
It wasn’t until I honed in on a holistic approach to my mental health, and really listened to MYSELF that I started to heal.
Today, I’ve supported hundreds of clients in learning how to trust themselves to build a life that aligns with their values, and I absolutely love every moment.
I believe when we normalize emotional well-being, we honor growing into the best possible version of ourselves.
I’ve been known to drop an F-bomb here or there – AKA a “Friends” quote, obviously!
(“PIVOT! PIVOT”! #ifyouknowyouknow)
But honestly, I’m cool with my curse word moments, too – it’s my Long Island, NY childhood coming through!
Here’s what I know to be true: your life is YOURS for a reason.
The things you want are within your reach.
You are more than capable of achieving everything you set your mind to.
And your emotional health should support you every step of the way.
This is your invitation to be the leading expert – on yourself – if:
You’re tired of feeling overwhelmed in your day-to-day life.
You crave confidence in both your personal and professional life.
You want to try new things without judgement or expectation of outcome.
You’d love to achieve a more aligned, integrated lifestyle utilizing healthy habits.
You want to acknowledge your feelings in a way that prevents old habits from coming back.
