Professional statement

Chelsea Victor is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Mental Health Counselor located in Farmington, CT. Chelsea is passionate about helping people navigate relationship issues, such as constant fighting, intense conflict, abandonment and attachment challenges, and more. Sometimes, the stress of relationship issues can leak into other areas of life like work or friendships, leading to a need for intervention or therapy. Chelsea also works with those whose anxiety, depression, or trauma symptoms are overwhelming, as well as those going through major periods of change. She is experienced in working with members of the LGBTQIA+ community and military personnel.

Chelsea takes a three-pronged approach to supporting her clients. She places focus on the mind, body, and spirit using therapy approaches like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), somatic practices, breathwork, and more. When working with couples, she draws attention to the neurobiological processes of connecting with other people and building strong bonds. She enjoys incorporating an element of religiosity or spirituality into her conversations, when appropriate. Chelsea also tends to incorporate feminist theory and attachment theory into her work.

Chelsea earned a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Bridgewater State University. She helps clients overcome challenging emotions and heal important relationships, as well as find purpose and meaning in their daily lives. Clients learn how to live with joy and authenticity through their sessions with Chelsea, improving all aspects of their lives.


Message to clients

The path to healing is never truly complete, but the peace obtained when we embrace the journey with openness and authenticity is unmatched. Hi, I'm Chelsea, a licensed mental health counselor who truly wants to help. As a person who has had to walk my own path of healing I know how difficult it can be to find safe places to be authentic and vulnerable. Making the choice to seek support does not always come easily, you want someone who can recognize that leap and honor it with their support and the skills necessary to help you. My goal as your therapist is to work with you in order to find your peace, as defined by you. Together we will address mind, body and spiritual healing in order to not only get you on your feet now, but give you the tools that will help sustain you and ground you as you move forward through life's obstacles.
