More about me

Licensing: MA, LPC
Years in Practice: 7

Hello and welcome!

I am so happy that you decided to take the first step in making a change. I know that it may have taken a lot of courage to take the first step, but you should be proud that you did. On our journey through life, we will endure many twists and turns, but how we navigate, makes all the difference. I am here to help you navigate those twists and turns from an understanding, non-judgmental, open-minded, supportive, and interactive perspective.

My name is Chanel Scales and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I have over 7 years of experience. I have worked with clients to assist them with processing/managing an array of concerns to include: depression, anxiety, HIV, LGBTQ+, substance use (current and past), self-esteem, parenting, finances, traumatic related issues, relationship issues, mood disorders, and ADHD. I believe in using a combination of approaches, as there is no one size fit all. Some approaches that I utilize include: person-centered, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral, and solution-focused.

I believe in treating everyone with the respect that they deserve and being straightforward, not just telling you what I think you want to hear. My goal is to provide you with tools that you can utilize beyond our sessions to be successful. I am delighted to work with you and be part of your journey.

I look forward to working with you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Chanel is super skilled and very kind. I had a bad experience with a therapist in the past (not on BetterHelp) but it has been completely different with Chanel.

Chanel is great! She's so patient and really sincere. I appreciated her remembering small details from our past sessions and she always took her time with me and never rushed through our sessions. She's wonderful!

She’s amazing!

Chanel is great! She was the first counsellor I was paired with and it's been a good fit. She's kind, her hours are flexible and she offers live chat, phone or video. I'm in the UK and the time difference was never as issue. She lets you take the lead with what you want to speak about. She's a good listener, non judgemental, understanding and empathetic. She always remembered details from past sessions which made me feel she was genuinely listening. We've shared some laughs and I've always come away from sessions feeling better. I was confused for a long time about what decision to make about a family relationship and she's really helped me get on a positive path with that and finally make a choice. The reason I'm leaving is because I want to start some in person therapy in my local area with someone who deals specifically with a certain issue. Anyone who gets assigned Chanel is lucky!

I found Chanel's counseling to be helpful and opened my eyes to more options in bettering my situation. I'm looking forward to working with her again next week.

Chanel is relaxed yet professional which makes me feel very at ease during our sessions. She listens intently and only directs the conversation when necessary, preferring to let her clients control what we navigate that session. She also offers a variety of times for sessions which fit really well with a professional schedule— she even does weekend sessions! I’m still pretty new to BetterHelp but so far it’s a fantastic experience!

Chanel has helped me realize things of myself that I would not realize on my own. She makes my journey to understand myself more organized and less scary. I feel comfortable speaking with her about every part of me without judgement. Glad to be paired with Chanel.

Chanel is such a sweetheart and VERY kind! She is non-judgemental and is very honest as well. Although I was only with her for a short amount of time, she helped me out a lot, granting me tools that will help me cope with certain issues as well as just being an amazing listener! She's amazing!

Chanel is a babe and really helped me by listening and offering tools to work through what I am going thru. She offers messaging, video whatever you feel comfortable with. She is very sweet and understanding and does not judge. I feel safe to express myself

T.E.·Mar 11, 2021


Chanel is very personable, warm and empathetic. She listens intently and gives you a lot of time to talk and release whatever is on your plate. I’ve deeply appreciated her care and concern.
