About Melanie Smithson, MA, LPC, BC-DMT, CHt

I hold a Master's degree from Naropa University in Somatic Psychotherapy and have taught in the department. I am licensed in the State of Colorado as a professional counselor (LPC), have advanced registry with the American Dance Therapy Association (BC-DMT) and am a certified EMDR practitioner and a certified Hypnotherapist (CHt).

I have been working since 1997 with a variety of modalities, including EMDR, DNMS, Dance/Movement Therapy, Play Therapy, Hypnotherapy and Sandtray Therapy to help clients move through whatever may be blocking health and well-being.

I believe our natural state is of vibrant health and we are spiritual beings having a human experience and that our emotions and physical body are not separate. As we move emotions that have been caught in the body, we release physical symptoms and more readily connect to our innate well-being.

I have specialized for many years in relationship, grief and loss, trauma, childhood abuse issues, depression and anxiety. I have recently added Life Between Lives Spiritual Regression Therapy to my offerings to accelerate healing in this lifetime. I am passionate about play for young and old, believing the creative process to be key to healing and spiritual growth. I can be reached on my confidential voice at 303-271-7659.

Trained by Dr. Michael Newton and certified by The Newton Institute.
