Chelsea Buffum, MS, LMHC is a licensed mental health counselor who specializes in treating eating disorders. She owns an outpatient practice in Yakima, WA, and is passionate about how stigma, discrimination, and social determinants of health impact our relationship to food and our bodies. She uses a Health at Every Size ® lens when working with clients, as disconnection and dissatisfaction with our bodies is often driven by an intense - and culturally sanctioned - desire to lose weight. She believes that body shame is rarely a good and long term motivator to engage in healthy behaviors.

Chelsea graduated from Whitworth University with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and from Central Washington University with her Master’s in Mental Health Counseling. Her research has focused on attitudes and stigma toward those who are in larger bodies and/or have Binge Eating Disorder. Prior to opening her practice Chelsea worked as a clinician at CWU’s Student Medical and Counseling Clinic, and developed CWU’s first Eating Disorder Treatment Protocol. She has experience in residential treatment facilities as well as rehabilitative homes.
