Professional statement

Chelsea Newton (she/her/hers) is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Sexuality Educator located in Golden, Colorado. She specializes in sex therapy and trauma, working with adults of all ages on a wide variety of sexuality and mental health issues. Many of Chelsea’s clients show up to session to address trauma, relationship issues, identity development, and everyday stress. Chelsea is particularly passionate about serving individuals who identify as LGBTQIA+ or are exploring their sexual identity. She has advanced training in human sexuality, holding a Master of Education in Human Sexuality from Widener University’s Center for Human Sexuality Studies.

Chelsea is trained in sex therapy, narrative therapy, and client centered therapy. She works alongside clients, at their pace, to increase feelings of safety. In session, Chelsea focuses on identifying and building upon current skills, introducing new skills, and understanding her client’s unique needs. This approach supports clients to experience healing, clarity, mental well-being, and space.

Chelsea's style is authentic, non-judgmental, and supportive. When clients first start therapy they will begin to build trust with Chelsea, and come to know session as a safe space to explore their inner landscape. Chelsea wants her clients to feel empowered to show up as their most authentic selves, no masks required, even when that can feel challenging or scary.

Outside of work, Chelsea loves to explore the Colorado landscape with her partner of 11 years. Connection to nature and the cycles of the moon are important to Chelsea. She founded Phases of the Mind Therapy in 2020 and provides online therapy sessions to clients across Colorado.


Message to clients

Welcome! I’m glad you’re here.

Seeking therapy for sexuality issues is difficult and can feel overwhelming, or even embarrassing. I became a sex therapist because I love to help people overcome feelings of shame or uncertainty related to sexuality. You may not be here seeking sex therapy, and that’s okay too. I offer therapy to individuals who have experienced trauma and are seeking relief from symptoms or want support for everyday stress.

I use a client-centered, healing focused approach, with a social justice lens to offer a supportive space for you to explore whatever you wish. After nearly a decade of working in public service as a Social Worker, I am deeply aware of how social justice issues impact mental health. Individual identity is critical to overall wellness and I welcome you exactly as you are.

I would be honored to work with you.
