Chelsea Jennings, LCSW-C
Licensed Certified Social Worker, Clinical
Chelsea is licensed as a clinical social worker in the state of Maryland. She comes to CRBH from Three Lower Counties Community Services (TLC) in Salisbury, MD where she has worked as an outpatient therapist for the past three years. During her time at TLC, Chelsea received intensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, a treatment program designed for individuals who experience extreme emotions, have difficulty in interpersonal relationships, and engage in impulsive behaviors. While working toward her Master's Degree, Chelsea worked for the Worcester County Health Department in the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program, a community based service for children and adults who need skills building and support outside of the therapy setting, and interned with Alternative Directions, an evidence based program designed to provide full evaluations for court referred youth to determine their needs in order to reduce recidivism.
Philosophy of Care
I believe that life is a balancing act. People seek balance in their relationships, in happy versus sad days, in work time and home life, and in the influence of the past versus looking toward the future. I think that balance looks different to everyone, but we know it when we have it and miss it when it's gone. As a therapist, I work with my clients to help them find their own balance. I approach each person as an individual with individual needs and goals. While I often use DBT informed treatment, I recognize that no one theory or therapy will solve the problems of every client. I aim to assist the individuals I work with to feel confident and capable when facing life's challenges.
