Meet Chelsea Petty

Director of Family Program / Dallas Lead Therapist

Chelsea received her Bachelor of Psychology from Texas Tech University and her Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Our Lady of the Lake University. During scholarly pursuits, Chelsea discovered her passion for working with individuals and their families in order to foster long-lasting growth in multiple areas within a support system. 

Prior to working with Arise Recovery Centers, Chelsea gained experience working in domestic violence shelter, public school, university counseling, and inpatient substance use settings. Chelsea’s therapeutic approach stems from Family Systems and Strengths-Based models which honor the full scope of one’s context and strengths during the healing process. She functions in largely solution-focused and narrative approaches and believes clients have the power to elicit the change(s) they wish to see in their lives.  The foundation of Chelsea’s core beliefs surrounding healing and growth are rooted in her favorite mantra: “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” -Neal Donald Walsch.
