Chelsea Clemans, RN, MA
Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse
Chelsea is a medical professional with experience in working in hospital emergency departments, and crisis services, including inpatient behavioral health working at residential treatment centers specifically with substance use disorder patients and cooccurring disorders. At Lido Wellness Center (LWC) she specializes in working with trauma patients and provides medical oversight as a psychiatric mental health nurse promoting holistic wellness.
Her decision to join LWC came from a desire to be part of a team that is dedicated to being the patient’s last treatment encounter. She feels motivated when she works with Lido Wellness patients because she sees in them a sincere desire to succeed and feel better. She enjoys working with a variety of specialists at LWC and learning from the vast experiences of her fellow clinicians and colleagues.
Chelsea completed her undergraduate nursing program at Indiana University and was especially impacted by a semester in Washington DC, where she provided healthcare to the homeless population. She attended graduate school in southern Kentucky at the University of the Cumberlands where she obtained a dual master’s degrees in clinical mental health counseling and addictions counseling.
She is proud to be part of a military family and feels extra satisfaction in serving those who have served. Her husband was deployed multiple times with the Marine Corps during Iraqi Freedom. Her free time is spent practicing mindful meditation and journaling and enjoying nature with her family. She and her husband and their two children frequently take hikes in Southern California and enjoy biking the Santa Ana Mountains and Santa Ana River trail to the beach.
