Melanie Smithson


I am passionate about unlocking the joy, vitality and ease that is our natural state. I work with the body-mind to help stuck emotions. Through compassionate acceptance of what we've experienced and where we are in this moment, we can create a new future.

My Approach

I am trained in a variety of modalities that support letting go. I believe the therapeutic process can be fun, as we learn to laugh at ourselves and life (as best we can). I believe it is important to find a balance between working through trauma and knowing that which we are is untouched by the circumstances of this lifetime.

My Background

I hold a master's degree in Somatic Psychotherapy (emphasis Dance/Movement Therapy) and am trained in EMDR, Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy, Hypnotherapy, Sedona Method Releasing and Life Between Lives Hypnotherapy. I have been working with individuals and groups for over 20 years and own Smithson Clinic, Inc. with my husband, Gail, an alternative health and wellness center.
