Professional statement

Chalice Mathioudakis is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Rumford, RI who specializes in helping sensitive LGBTQIA+ individuals with difficulties such as depression, anxiety, trauma, including social anxiety and challenges related to intersectionality. They also have expertise in helping neurodivergent individuals with building confidence and self esteem, as well as individuals who are in the helping and healing professions, such as mental health or education. Chalice particularly enjoys working with gender-related challenges such as identity, expansiveness, and nonconformity, as well as topics associated with power, privilege, and oppression.

Chalice’s style is flexible and creative, with an emphasis on therapeutic collaboration rather than upholding formal power dynamics between client and therapist. They offer transparency from the beginning of the therapeutic relationship, sharing that they live with a dynamic/episodic disability and how this may affect their attendance consistency at times. Those who have had negative past experiences with more traditional therapists may do well with Chalice’s relaxed demeanor. They utilize therapeutic self disclosure when appropriate and are willing to answer questions regarding their identity, professional training and lived experience.

Chalice also offers to incorporate tarot into therapy, for those who are interested in this. Therapy sessions with tarot are process-oriented, with an emphasis on dialogue, inner-inquiry and wonder rather than pre-determined card definitions or conclusions. This may involve discussing tarot concepts and archetypes, or engaging in collaborative card interpretation through a Jungian therapy lens. The therapeutic value not only lies in what comes up in a client’s interpretation, but also what the interpretation elicits from the client’s subconscious mind.

Chalice’s goal is to help clients make long-lasting changes. Clients describe them as genuine, warm, and able to incorporate a mix of psychological and spiritual perspectives into session in a meaningful way. They look forward to meeting you for remote sessions.
