Client Care Coordinator
Chelsey Stauffer is a Client Care Coordinator here at Water Gap Wellness which allows her to work directly with clients to help them make a smooth transition into their recovery process. She is passionate about her position because she understands just how scary early recovery can be as she has had her own battles with mental health and addiction.
Growing up, Chelsey experienced a lot of trauma which led to being diagnosed with multiple mental health disorders. She was in and out of numerous therapists’ offices as a child and decided that she would like to work in the field one day. In 2010, she began attending university and studying Psychology when addiction took hold of her life and put all her plans on hold. She spent the next few years living in degradation and dereliction.
Chelsey eventually went into treatment desperate for recovery and took all the suggestions given to her. She credits much of her early recovery to the staff at the facilities she attended. Because she took their advice and completed the program, she had some tools which she used to completely rebuild her life from the ground up. The flame of desire to help others was once again lit by the staff at those facilities, and she decided this was what she wanted to do with her life.
Now with some years clean, Chelsey has found meaning and purpose working in the treatment field and helping those that are just like her. She hopes to be able to provide hope to clients by sharing her experience and offering the same suggestions that helped to save her own life.
