About Richelle Smallwood

I am a dedicated and compassionate Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a solid foundation in social work, complemented by extensive education and over 11 years of professional experience. In 2009, I earned my bachelor’s degree in social work from Elizabeth City State University, and in 2011, I furthered my commitment to the field by obtaining a master’s degree in social work from East Carolina University.

My professional journey has been marked by a steadfast dedication to improving the mental well-being of individuals across diverse age groups. Throughout my career, I have honed my skills as a trauma-informed therapist, demonstrating a deep understanding of the complex effects of trauma on individuals’ lives. My therapeutic approach is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a proven method that empowers individuals to identify and modify negative thought patterns, fostering positive behavioral change.

Specializing in self-esteem issues and trauma, I bring a wealth of experience in working with both children and adults. I am committed to creating a safe and supportive environment where clients can explore their core beliefs and develop a deeper understanding of themselves. My goal is to empower individuals to navigate life’s challenges, build resilience, and foster a sense of self-worth.

With a client-centered approach, I prioritize collaboration and open communication, tailoring therapeutic interventions to meet the unique needs of each individual. My comprehensive skill set, coupled with a genuine passion for helping others, underscores my commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of those I serve.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I continue to stay abreast of the latest developments in the field, ensuring that my practice remains informed by evidence-based techniques and the highest standards of ethical care.
