Professional statement

Chalice Mathioudakis is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Providence, RI who specializes in helping sensitive LGBTQIA+ introverts with difficulties such as depression, anxiety, trauma, including social anxiety, career counseling, and spirituality. They also have expertise in helping 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 tailoring counseling to suit a client’s personality, needs, and goals. They incorporate insight-oriented therapy to help their 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. Clients are encouraged to focus on interpreting the cards in a way that makes personal sense to them, to delve into subconscious thought processes. They then support clients in collaborative and therapeutic interpretation.

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


Message to clients

My absolute love is helping sensitive LGBTQIA+ introverts who have been pushed to the margins discover their voice.

Maybe you’re deeply empathetic, you’ve been told you’re too sensitive, an over-thinker, take things too personally, too quiet, too withdrawn, too much, too... something! Roughly 15-20% of the population has a level of sensory processing sensitivity and about 25-40% of the population are introverts. If you suspect this describes you, you’re in good company.

I think us sensitive introverts have unique needs, ways to tend to ourselves, and types of emotional nourishment that are under-appreciated in the dominant culture. And when we’re navigating a life that involves various intersections, things can be really difficult, often overwhelming.

It’s very important to me that the therapy space honors all pieces of your identity. I offer a judgement-free zone for those interested in exploring and navigating topics related to power, privilege, oppression, and marginalization (e.g., white supremacy, transnegativity, homophobia, sexism, ableism, etc.). In the spirit of full transparency, I believe that as a human who embodies a number of structural privileges, my anti-racist and anti-oppressive learning is never finished, which is humbling.

My goal is to offer you the highest quality holistic counseling that I can, so any gains you make in therapy will last. And I always emphasize that no matter who you are or where you come from, your story is honored here.

Those who have the financial resources will pay the standard rate of $200/session.

Those with fewer resources will have access to the available slots within the following 4-tiered sliding scale:

Tier 4: $160-199, for those who can generally afford but have budget constraints

Tier 3: $130-159, for those who have moderate budget constraints

Tier 2: $100-129, for those who have significant budget constraints

Tier 1: $10-99, for those who couldn’t access psychotherapy without this option, lower income, no savings and/or financial support from family; unemployed, living paycheck to paycheck, little to no expendable income
