Chelsea S. White


My name is Chelsea White and I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor at Global Counseling Solutions. I have a passion for working with people who suffer from mental health disorders including PTSD, substance abuse, anxiety, and severe depression. Responding to the needs of individuals who are struggling to manage the symptoms of these issues is a responsibility that I take very seriously. In my experience, I have found that most mental health disorders begin during adolescence. This is why I am passionate about helping adolescents live full, balanced, and healthier lives. I assist my clients in developing and implementing coping skills and self-care strategies that assist them in living a more fulfilling life.

I enjoy working with adolescents, adults, and couples. Compassion, warmth, and objectivity are just some of the values I offer to clients I serve. My clients are accepted for who they are while receiving encouragement to become self-aware, grow and thrive within their communities. My goal is to create a safe space for reviving the soul, mind, will, and emotions. I strive to assist clients in rebuilding weakened relationships while also assisting them in their own personal restoration. I also have a passion for working with clients who identify themselves as members of LGBTQ+.

System Counseling, as well as Cognitive-Behavioral and Cognitive Restructuring approaches, are blended with Motivational Interviewing techniques to form the basic theoretical foundation of my work with clients. I offer Individual, Couples, and Marriage Counseling, Christian Counseling, Life and Executive Coaching, Consultation, and Clinical supervision.

I believe in your ability to find the answers to your life’s dilemmas. I see myself as a facilitator within the therapeutic relationship, providing objective guidance and support, as well as, challenging unhealthy thought processes while creating a warm, accepting, and soothing environment in which to work. Let’s redesign the life you were created to live.

Sometimes things happen that affect the way we see the world, the way we treat people, and the way we think about ourselves. This can happen to anyone. Sometimes, when life knocks you down, it can be tough getting back up. I help people get up.

I currently specialize in relationship counseling not limited to intimate partner relationships, but also everyday interactions i.e., working, organizational, non-traditional, casual, mutually beneficial, and structural. I commonly assist with communication which is a major underlying issue found within relationship dysfunction.

My preferred methodologies for treatment are Gestalt therapy, Autogenic Training, CBT, Existential Therapy, and grief counseling.

My strengths lie in understanding, compassion, mutual respect, and experience. I am able to channel levels of comprehension in the following areas: Abandonment, depression, low self-esteem, jealousy, forgiveness, lack of trust, relationship strain, and everyday challenges.

Other areas of proficiency include coping with life changes, communication problems, divorce and separation, emptiness, and intimacy-related issues.

Elecca Placer

I am Elecca Placer, an admin/clinical assistant at Global Counseling Solutions, PLLC. I am always passionate about meeting people from different walks of life. I acknowledge that we are experiencing varying levels of stress and carrying issues that may not be obvious to others. With this, I am a firm advocate for mental health. I believe that seeking help is never a sign of weakness rather it is a measure of bravery. That’s why working in a practice that promotes mental health is fulfilling for me because I can hone my passion which is to aid other people to seek help and attain their full potential. Outside of work, I take pleasure in reading books, watching tv series, and spending time with my dog.

Eliza Tan

I am the Marketing Director of Global Counseling Solutions. Although I am not a therapist, I’ve always been passionate about improving my understanding of mental health and helping others.

I am a firm believer that everyone needs someone to talk to. I love the idea of making talking easier and more accessible by connecting people with the right therapists online. I use my experience and knowledge of how the internet works to make that happen.

I love to read, write, and learn new things. I’m always on a mission to grow as an individual. To be a better version of myself.
