Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Owner – Mallorie Smolen

My name is Mallorie Smolen and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Colorado and Connecticut.

“If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can’t survive.” Brene Brown

I welcome you to our practice. I know seeking therapy isn’t an easy thing to do, so I am glad that you are here! If we can do anything to support please do not hesitate to reach out and ask! We have a very open and inviting team who offers a variety of treatment support to meet your needs. We strive on professionalism, trust, advocacy, integrity, and respect. We cannot wait to meet you and begin you on your therapy journey.

I grew up in Connecticut and recently moved with my family to Loveland, CO. We truly love being in this wonderful state with all of the wonderful sunshine! I enjoy hiking the beautiful trails, seeing the wildlife, and of course the sunshine.

I am a person-centered therapist allowing you the space to explore your needs using a variety of treatment models. I meet with children and adults. I have nine years of clinical experience and am trained in the following areas: Certified in EMDR Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, OCD, Sensory Integration Therapy, Disruptive Behaviors, Depression, Anxiety and Mindfulness. As a clinician, I believe it’s important to be a lifelong learner. I engage in ongoing supervision and attend professional development training to promote my growth as a clinician.

I graduated with my undergraduate degree from Eastern Connecticut State University in 2009 with a Bachelors in Psychology. I graduated with my Masters in Social worker in 2012 from The University of New England in Portland, ME. I obtained my LCSW in 2014 in the state of Connecticut. Upon moving to CO I was able to receive my CO license in 2018.

I also incorporate non-traditional practices during your session. If you feel comfortable I enjoy implementing holistic modalities such mindfulness, the use of essential oils, and playing the sound healing bowls.

Meet Our New Counselor – Samantha Harder, LPCC

“Loving ourselves through the process of owning our story is the bravest thing we will ever do.” – Brené Brown

Hi there! I am Sam and I am so glad you are here. Gosh, being a human can be hard sometimes, can’t it? Perhaps even harder than we ever imagined it would be. I am a firm believer that no one should ever have to go through life’s difficulties alone, which is precisely why I decided to become a counselor. While I know you have every ounce of strength, courage, and power within yourself that you will ever need to overcome those struggles, I will be here with you every step of the way to support, challenge, and encourage you as we work together toward your goals.

I believe that true, holistic wellness is always possible, even with the extremely painful and trying experiences life sometimes throws our way. I am a client-centered therapist who highly values the therapeutic relationship and I work very hard to create a safe, trusting environment where my clients feel heard, supported, and fully accepted just as they are. It is my goal to work with clients to identify their strengths, apply them to various parts of their lives, and address client concerns head on as we work through them together in a way that aligns best with their values.

As a Colorado native I have spent much of my life enjoying the beauty that our great state has to offer as a large part of my own wellness journey. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Denver in 2015. After undergrad I went on to play professional soccer overseas for a few years before pursuing my Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Wyoming (graduated May of 2021). My travels and life experiences have given me rich exposure to many different cultures and individuals from all walks of life, which allows me to approach treatment with my clients from a multiculturally sensitive lens.

I have a wide range of experience working with clients of all ages using various modalities and techniques such as play therapy for children, talk therapy for adolescents and adults, expressive arts therapies, mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, crisis and trauma work, along with CBT, and DBT. I recognize that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy and we will work together to find techniques that fit best with your needs and goals. Regardless of the method, you will ultimately be in the driver’s seat and you will get to decide where we go on this journey. I look forward to working together!

Meet Our New Counselor – Margaret Davis, LPCC

You can’t rush your healing. Darkness has its teachings. Love is never leaving.” – Trevor Hall

My goal is to support clients in cultivating self-empowerment, self-love, and self-healing. I believe that we are our own healers. Within a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment, we are able to get to know ourselves on a deeper level, connect to our inner voice (intuition), and become more aligned with our authentic self. I have worked with young adults and adults of various backgrounds and cultures, including the LGBTQ+ community. My experience is primarily working with anxiety, depression, difficult life transitions, grief, trauma, and relationship concerns.

I utilize a non-directive counseling approach, which involves meeting you where you are each day and supporting your choice in where we go on this healing journey together. I weave aspects of mindfulness, holistic wellness, and the mind-body-spirit connection into my practice, with an emphasis on self-compassion and emotion-processing. I honor the fact that everyone is different and I will work together with you to find the practices and techniques that align with your goals.

I have previously lived in Colorado before moving to Arkansas, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, both from the University of Arkansas. Upon earning my Master’s degree in August of 2021, I felt called to move back to the beautiful state of Colorado! In my free time I enjoy yoga, hiking, camping, cuddling with my cat, and seeing live music with friends/family.

I would be honored to walk by your side and hold space for you as you navigate through life’s challenges and work toward creating a life that feels authentic for you.

Meet Our New Intern Therapist!

Hi there! My name is Drew Feldbaum.

Trauma occurs in so many forms and can have monumental effects on our core beliefs about ourselves, interactions with the world, and relationships with others. I believe that anxiety, depression, dissociation, thoughts of “who am I”, reliance on others to feel okay, and many other feelings are the brain’s skillful way of surviving trauma/disturbances. Unfortunately, these symptoms can at times make life feel unbearable and challenging, can shrink the world around us, and lessen amount of perceived available choices to make. I use an empathic, connection-based therapy style, focused on attachment and regulation. It is important in my practice to provide support, a judgement-free sounding board, psycho-education, and guidance, to assist clients with healing and living their most optimal life path for themselves.
I work mainly with adults and my professional training and experience has specifically focused on: Highly sensitive persons, domestic violence, child abuse/neglect, sexual abuse victims/survivors, sexual/romantic/lifestyle differences, and LGBTQ+.

I utilize strategies from Internal Family Systems/Ego State/working with parts, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Poly Vagal Theory. I intend to become EMDR-certified in the near future and currently use many of the concepts found within this therapy, such as resourcing.

Spirituality is very important to many clients in their healing and I enjoy working with spiritual beliefs, resources, and practices.

Currently, I am a graduate MSW student at Colorado State University, an intern therapist with The Other Road Counseling, and the proud parent of two cats.

*Fluent in ASL and experienced in working with Deaf/hard-of-hearing individuals.

Meet Our New Certified Reiki Master!

Hello, my name is Corrine Kaylor.

I am a Certified Reiki Master and I have been a practicing Reiki Master (RM) for six years. My foundation of training is in the Japanese Usui Holy Fire method of Reiki. I specialize in healing support for those struggling with both emotional and physical trauma as well as chronic illness. After a fulfilling and joyous career as an educator working with a diverse population of children and families I shifted my focus to holistic healing providing healing support for the mind, body and spirit. Reiki is a form of energy work that creates a space for clarity, mental as well as emotional release, relaxation and overall wellbeing. It is a form of energy healing that supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself. My areas of study are sound healing, mindful meditation, chakra balancing and crystal healing. I offer these healing modalities as well as aroma therapy during your 60 or 90 minute session. A session may also be distant meaning “not present”.  When I am not providing sessions I enjoy spending time with family, volunteering, hiking and communing with nature as well as attending workshops.
