Welcome! I'm Chelsea DiCicco, and I am the owner of Chelsea DiCicco Counseling Services, LLC. I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Connecticut, and I provide individual therapy to adults struggling with anxiety, depression, adjustment to life changes, trauma, PTSD, eating disorders, and body image.
I was born and raised in Middletown, Connecticut, and I earned both my bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of New Haven. In my free time I enjoy playing the piano, spending time with my friends and family and my dog Niko, cooking, and watching reruns of my favorite shows on Netflix.
In my professional life, I have been fortunate enough to gain valuable experiences in different settings (office, clinic, community, home) with a diverse population of individuals. My passion and specialities include working with individuals struggling to overcome disordered eating patterns and a negative relationship with food and their bodies, young adults adjusting to college life, individuals working on healing from trauma, and adults suffering from anxiety and/or depression. My therapeutic approach is strength based, and I often include elements of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) in my practice to help you learn to shift your focus from what you perceive to be weaknesses, back to the strengths you possess. I am a firm believer in the importance and value of a strong therapeutic relationship. It is a very special and unique type of relationship that provides the opportunity for self-reflection and growth, as well as a safe space for vulnerability without judgement.
I applaud you in taking this first step to seek therapy, and thank you for visiting my site!
