Chelsea S. Hill, MSW, LICSW, 500 RYT, Certified EMDR Practitioner

Owner, Founder, and

Clinical Director 

Not accepting new clients at this time.

Chelsea is a skilled trauma therapist and yoga /somatic movement instructor.  Chelsea's  goal is to create a safe, comfortable and judgment free space for you to explore and examine aspects of your life that have or are causing you distress. As your therapist, she will collaborate with you to; identify your goals and strengths, empower you to make lasting change, help you rediscover hope, peace, and balance, and experience emotional and/or spiritual healing. Every person brings their own unique experiences and perspectives of the world into therapy, and because of that, there is no “one size fits all” model that Chelsea uses in practice.

Chelsea is now offering Embodied EMDR Sessions.

Licensed in RI and MA.

Insurances Accepted:  BCBS, Optum (UHC, Neighborhood, AllWays), Tricare, Aetna
