Anxiety

Do you overthink situations, maybe you constantly replay situations in your head or you often feel overwhelmed? Do you constantly worry and don’t know how to turn this off? Do you find that you struggle with confidence and often question yourself? It’s time to turn the negative self talk off and find your best self

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Emotional Awareness

Are you having difficulty managing your emotions? Do you not know what you are feeling? Maybe you were told to brush your feelings under the rug growing up and discouraged from expressing what you were feeling? It’s time to learn to express yourself in a safe way and manage those overwhelming emotions

 

 

 

 

Do you feel like a broken record asking your partner or loved one to get help?  Are you feeling depressed, anxious frustrated, angry, or even resentment towards them because of their addiction?  I am trained in CRAFT (Community Reinforcement Approach to Family Training), which is an empirically-validated approach for parents and partners of loved ones who refuse treatment.  I can help you build strategies to not only help engage your loved one in treatment but also improve your quality of life.

Establish a support system

Therapy is a great way to rebuild your emotional health

Emotional health is a fundamental part of your overall wellbeing. One way to maintain your emotional health is to have a stable support system, and see a therapist on a regular basis. It’s normal to have anxiety and stress but having a strong support system makes everyday challenges a little easier.

About Maren Londahl-Smidt

Helping others discover their journey to happiness.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with more than 8 years of experience. I have lived in North Carolina my entire life gaining experiences in medical settings, outpatient therapy, and community mental health. Through these experiences I have worked with many populations in various walks of life. I provide therapy services to ages 12 and up, specializing in anxiety, stress management, parenting support with a focus on attachment, and building confidence. My approach to therapy is client-centered and strengths based, which I borrow from many different perspectives with the goal of understanding your individual needs. I utilize a variety of approaches to meet your needs such as Attachment Based, Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy,, and Relaxation Training. I hold a Masters of Social Work from North Carolina State University and a Masters in Service Agency Counseling from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. I chose to become a therapist because I wanted to help others find the best version of themselves through all parts of their health. Yes! I fell down and took the long, windy road that led me here. Now I get to use the skills I learned along the way to help others figure out what isn’t working for them, and how to deal with their current situation. In my free time, I enjoy riding and showing horses, dogs, running, traveling, and live music. I’m also a diehard Wolfpack fan!
