Chalice Mathioudakis is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Providence, RI who specializes in gender identity and transgender health, depression, anxiety disorders, including social anxiety, career counseling, and spirituality. As a self-identified queer woman, providing a safe space for LGBTQ individuals and their loved ones is close to her heart and an important part of her practice. She also has expertise in working with young adults who are feeling lost and grappling with who they are and where they are going in life; individuals who are in the helping professions, such as mental health and education, and/or who identify as highly-sensitive.
Chalice’s style is flexible and creative, with an emphasis on tailoring counseling to suit a client’s personality, needs, and goals. She incorporates insight-oriented, expressive therapies to help her clients dig deep and get to the root of their issues. In addition, Chalice uses a strength-based approach informed by Myers-Briggs personality type theory.
Chalice also offers Tarot therapy, for those who are interested. This involves identifying a thought, emotion, or challenge a client is facing, like exploring what may be contributing to depression, where to seek inspiration, or what is blocking them from moving forward in their life. They would then draw Tarot cards and place them in a framework to provide cognitive, emotional, behavioral, or environmental factors to examine. She encourages them to not worry about receiving any divinatory message from the cards but instead to therapeutically and collaboratively interpret them in a way that makes sense to them.
Chalice’s goal is to help clients make long-lasting changes. Clients describe her as authentic, warm, and able to incorporate spirituality into sessions in a meaningful way. Outside of private practice, she is a Transgender Specialist at Family Service Association. She looks forward to meeting you at her office in the Wayland neighborhood of Providence.
