About Me

My name is Ekiba Smith, and I am a licensed mental health counselor and the founder of Wellness Mindset Counseling Services. From a very early age, I had an affinity for mental health and wellness; I constantly envisioned a career in this field and worked hard throughout my college years to accomplish a childhood dream. However, my love for what I do has only grown over the years. I have a passion for helping others be the best version of themselves, and I care deeply about their wellbeing. My goal is to help others improve their quality of life by exploring, gaining awareness, developing much needed skills, and becoming empowered through educating and supporting them

Education & Experience

Since 2006, I have provided individual and group therapy sessions to adolescents and adults in various settings, including in residential programs, at homes, via Telehealth, and in schools. All individuals’ circumstances are unique; for that reason, each client is treated based on their individual needs, and all my sessions are tailored to address the challenges unique to them.
