A bit about me
Malika Reeves holds a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Malika’s empathetic and caring disposition allows for great connection with clients which supports a strong therapeutic relationship! The relationship developed between Malika and her clients fosters a healthy environment for change.
Malika’s experience in mental health includes visitation facilitation for foster children and their families, case management for at-risk youth and their families, and mental health counseling for children in an intensive day treatment program. All of these positions focused on a trauma-informed care approach to therapy as well as a holistic approach collaborating with families, educators, and child care workers to best support the client in their treatment goals. It is Malika’s goal to support her clients as they grow and pursue change in ways that are personal and specific to them.
Her therapeutic orientation is a strengths-based, trauma-informed, personal and integrative. This allows for a safe space for clients (and their families) to discuss their needs as they work towards treatment goals. Her approach has been beneficial to those with a variety of mental health issues including but not limited to Anxiety, Adjustment Disorder, OCD, ADHD, Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (other mood disorders), and those with trauma/attachment disorders.
In her free time she enjoys exploring local attractions (the beach is her happy place), spending time with her two dogs, reading, and playing video games.
Taking my dogs to the beach and spending hours in the sun and water, coming home to take a nap and ending the night with a cup of tea and reading a book.
Best part about being a therapist
Meeting all kinds of people with all different backgrounds and perspectives; it pushes me to always be learning more about myself and the world around me.
I was in choir for 10+ years throughout high school and college. I love to sing.
Between clients you can find me
Reading, grabbing a quick snack, or taking a power nap!
