Maliya K. Smith


Healing is a journey that is unique for everyone and if you are ready to unlock your true potential, I am ready to help you embody your authentic greatness!


Hey, hey, hey! My name is Maliya Smith and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor.

I see ages 3-18 and adults.


As a therapist, I counsel from a holistic perspective. Therefore when working with my clients I will look at their experience through a multidimensional lens. This process will allow you to come to understanding your layers of how trauma or early life experiences have influenced you today.  You may have maladaptive behaviors, beliefs and repressed emotions and we can see how this all plays out in your daily life and help you make changes for better relationships and  better daily experience. 


I use person-centered therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness based practices, meditation and yoga. I am also a certified kemetic yoga instructor, therefore I incorporate deep breathing, postures and movements (by request) to help heal subconscious and perhaps multigenerational wounds. My goal is to empower you holistically by allowing you to understand that life is not happening to you, you are the co-creator of your own reality and you can be your own healer, I am just a tool to help you see it.
