Currently accepting new clients! Are you searching for warm, empathetic support? In my practice, I create a safe, inclusive, and non-judgmental space where you can feel seen, heard, and understood. I believe that each person is the expert of their own life and has the capacity for positive change. Challenges I often work with include anxiety, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, and trauma. While I work with variety of concerns, I am particularly passionate about working with adults who are navigating the impacts of childhood trauma.
I use an integrative and trauma-informed approach, blending various evidence based therapies while emphasizing autonomy, trust, and feelings of safety. This allows me to help clients gain a deeper understanding of themselves, set healthy boundaries, improve emotion regulation skills, and develop effective coping strategies to navigate challenges.
If you’d like to explore working together, please email me to set up a free 15 minute consultation. I'd love to learn more about you, your goals, and answer any questions you may have. Navigating life’s challenges can be difficult and you don’t need to do it alone. I’ll meet you where you are and work with you to get you to where you’d like to be.
Call or Mele Smallwood now for a free 15 minute consultation - (506) 526-0322
