Chelsea Canning, MSW, LCSW
Chelsea Canning has always had a love of helping others. It started at an early age, and laid the path for a Baccalaureate in Developmental Psychology with a minor in Lifespan Development, a Masters in Social Work, and then a Licensure in Clinical Social Work.
Ms. Canning has worked with emotionally dysregulated children, mentally ill substance dependent adults, Disabled Individuals, and older adults. She has also performed Medical Social Work in a Skilled Nursing Facility, County Psych Assessments, Discharge Planning and In-Utilization Management, and participated in the Linkages program which aims to keep seniors and disabled individuals independent. Her work with the Linkages program and the close relationship she had with her grandparents taught her to respect the older generation, and inspired the work she does now. She feels strongly that we benefit greatly when we stop and listen to our elders, as their experience and wisdom will guide us. It just so happens Chelsea is a very good listener.
On a personal note, Chelsea is a formidable chef who loves the beaches of Southern California, and has two beautiful children she is immensely proud of.
In her free time, Chelsea has been dedicated to volunteering in her community with a great group of people called Down But Not Out in LA. They feed the homeless two times each week on Skid Row in Los Angeles. Please check them out if you ever decide to volunteer or would like to donate.
