Claire Gelvin-Smith, MA, M.Ed, LPC-S
Born and raised in Fairbanks Alaska, it is a privilege to serve my home community. My professional background includes directing and co-facilitating an intensive outpatient program (IOP), group therapy program for addictions and trauma. Prior to the IOP, I worked with severely emotionally disturbed youth, both in the school and clinical setting. I am an adjunct with UAF’s psychology department, offering a psychology course in coordination with the Student Support Services’ TRIO program. My personal background includes growing up with horses and riding for most of my life, as well as offering riding instruction for a number of years. I enjoy fishing, being in the outdoors, painting, writing, and spending time with my family.
I am passionate about supporting individuals in healing from past trauma, strengthen a sense of purpose, instill hope, and thrive. As a certified Brainspotting practitioner, I seek to work with clients who are curious about their options to address and heal from past trauma. I am also an EAGALA certified mental health professional, offering equine assisted psychotherapy right here in Fairbanks. As an LPC-S, I work with pre-licensed clinicians to support their journey toward licensure.
I currently have a waitlist and am not able to take new clients. If you are interested in being added to the waitlist, please feel free to reach out.
