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.
Please reach out and ask any question that you may have! I look forward to meeting with you.
