Wellness Mindset


Counseling Services

Owner/ Founder

Ekiba Smith,  LMHC, EMDR Certified

Thanks for visiting my site! My name is Ekiba Smith, and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), EMDR certified therapist  and the founder of Wellness Mindset Counseling Services.


I have a passion for helping people, and I truly love what I do. With over 15 years of experience in the field of mental health, I have had the honor of working with individuals from diverse backgrounds and walks of life.

My approach to therapy is grounded in authenticity and genuineness. I believe that building a trusting and supportive relationship with my clients is key to helping them achieve their goals. I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental space where clients can explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences.

As an EMDR certified therapist, I specialize in helping clients overcome trauma and other difficult life experiences. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a highly effective therapy that helps clients process and heal from past traumas. I have seen firsthand the transformative power of EMDR in helping clients move forward and achieve greater emotional well-being.

My ultimate goal as a therapist is to empower my clients to live their best lives. I believe that everyone has the capacity to heal, grow, and thrive. With compassion, empathy, and expertise, I am here to support and guide you on your journey towards greater mental and emotional wellness.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a session, please don't hesitate to reach out. I look forward to connecting with you!

Clinician Intern

Bella Innocent,  RMHCI

Welcome to a space designed just for you! My name is Bella Innocent, a passionate and dedicated Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern (IMH25223), eager to join you on your journey towards healing and growth. My approach to therapy revolves around creating a safe and nurturing environment where you can truly be yourself.

With a foundation in Gestalt theory and a deep interest in working with children, teens, Gen-Z, and Millennials, I strive to partner with you in unraveling past traumas and fostering better coping skills. Every individual is unique, and I firmly believe in tailoring therapy to meet your specific needs and aspirations.

My experience spans across diverse settings, from supporting Veterans grappling with substance use to offering individualized therapeutic interventions to children, adults, and couples. I've honed my skills in various evidence-based modalities such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and mindfulness-based approaches.

In our sessions, you can expect a collaborative journey where we explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences without judgment. Together, we'll navigate through life's complexities, uncover your strengths, and pave the way toward a more fulfilling and balanced life.

I am committed to fostering a space that celebrates inclusivity, where every identity is welcomed and respected. Your well-being is my priority, and I look forward to being your guide as we navigate through this transformative process together.

Let's embark on this path towards healing and self-discovery. I'm here to support you every step of the way.


Commitment to helping people live an insightful, productive, and fulfilling life by providing professional, effective, evidenced-based therapy services, psycho-education, and awareness that support, facilitate, and enhances growth and resilience to overcome any obstacle for the purpose of living a balanced, empowered, and purposeful life.
