About Us

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.

I invite children, adolescents, and adults to my practice. I have more than six years of experience and am trained in the following areas: Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, Sensory Integration Therapy, disruptive behaviors, family conflict, and mindfulness. I have extensive training in a variety of areas and if what you’re looking for isn’t listed, please reach out to me to see if I can support your needs. 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 can also incorporate non-traditional practices during your session. If you feel comfortable I enjoy implementing holistic modalities. Interventions include yoga, mindfulness, essential oils, playing singing bowls, affirmations, mantras, and knowledge about chakras. Learning about yourself is very important in your journey!

My true purpose as a clinician is to build a trusting relationship with my client that allows them to feel safe when exploring their thoughts and feelings. I truly enjoy meeting new clients wherever they are on their own journey. Every person that I encounter teaches me something new. I believe we all have stories that can help heal not only ourselves but also others. I strive to create a safe place (virtually or in-person) that will allow each individual to share their story and allow the person to transform into their authentic self! The space that we create will allow your transformation to occur.

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.
