Chelsea Spaulding

Life can be a scary and daunting undertaking as it asks you to examine the pieces of yourself that are hard to face. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process where you and I work together to identify your strengths, values and needs and develop a personalized plan to address your concerns. I offer a safe confidential space where you can express yourself freely and explore your emotions, thoughts and beliefs. I also provide guidance and tools to help you cope with stress, anxiety, depression or any other issues you may be facing.

My goal as a therapist is to help you discover your potential, enhance your resilience, and improve your quality of life. I am here to listen, understand, and support you on your journey of healing and growth.


Working with Individuals

I believe that everyone’s story has meaning and you can be the author of your own life despite that inner critic telling you that it’s not possible. In our sessions, I will help you learn skills to manage your daily stresses. We can work on ways to achieve your goals, find new directions, or increase your motivation if you are feeling stuck or burned out.


Working with Adolescents

Teens have a lot going on these days with peer relationships, parental relationships, and generally wanting to feel seen and heard. As teens try to develop their independence, it creates tension in the home and it can feel like an unwinnable battle between parents and teens. By creating a safe space for teens to open up, I help them to process big emotions, life events, and improve their self-esteem. I use a combination of cognitive-behavioral (CBT), and dialectial behavior therapy (DBT) to help teens manage their emotions, change their negative thinking, and improve their relationships. I help teens develop the skills to communicate and problem solve better and deal with their anxiety, depression, and stressful live events more effectively. Most importantly, I help them to have a healthy view of themselves so they can change destructive, self-defeating thoughts and behaviors.


Working with Couples

I love working with couples! Creating a safe space where couples can both come to the table openly and honestly is something I strive for in sessions. Often, I will have couples come to me feeling more like roommates than an actual couple. I have training to help guide couples back to feeling more connected and intimate and less like roommates. I draw on Gottman therapy techniques to help couples resolve conflict, express their wants and needs in the relationship, and inspire hope and confidence back into their relationship. 

I work with all kinds of couples, including high-conflict couples, couples struggling with past trauma, and couples who generally want to better their relationship. 


Education and Background

I am a Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Arizona and received my Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University. I also have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Arizona State University.
