Chelsea Kellogg - Therapist Associate
Chelsea Kellogg – Therapist Associate
“I’m Chelsea Kellogg (she/her/hers). I received my master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Lewis and Clark College, where I also completed coursework in the sex therapy track. I work with adult individuals, monogamous couples, and non-monagmous and polyamory partners. My work is anti-racist, LGBTQIA+ affirming, trans allied, HAES and body trust informed, and kink & sex positive.
My approach is interactive, directive, non-judgemental, compassionate, and down to earth. I utilize several evidence-based therapeutic modalities that work in the “here and now” to weave together mindfulness, emotion, creativity, reflection, the present moment, and the body. I believe that therapy is most effective when a therapeutic relationship forms between the client and the therapist. In my work, I often call attention to the relationship and our interpersonal process. Doing so ensures that our work together in therapy feels safe, supportive, open, and fruitful.
My clients are people with histories of trauma (especially interpersonal trauma/complex PTSD), people experiencing depression, anxiety, panic attacks, grief, and anger, survivors of abuse, sexual violence survivors and those close to them, empaths, parents, recovering perfectionists, high achievers, highly sensitive people, queer folks, people with ADHD, people with religious trauma, & people struggling with body shame and the impact of a weight and image obsessed world.
As a sex positive therapist, I help couples and intimate partners open up and reflect on their sexual and gender identity, their desires, and their needs regarding sexual and emotional intimacy. My training in sex therapy prepared me to address a wide range of concerns in couples therapy including sexual or pleasure differences, intimacy after children, arousal difficulties, the impact of stress on sexual function and satisfaction, sex or porn addictions, fantasies and fetishes, differences in desire, navigating non traditional relationships, asexuality, open relationships and polyamory relationships.
I am also passionate about helping couples and people in intimate relationships who are affected by ADHD. Whether diagnosed or not, people with ADHD often carry painful feelings of inadequacy and shame in response to their experiences in relationships. Partners of people with ADHD often feel frustrated, unheard, and burned out. Living in a world that constantly tells you that the way you are wired is wrong, bad, and a problem is a very difficult thing to live with, but you don’t have to go it alone. If symptoms related to ADHD are impacting your relationship with your partner or partners, I can help.
