Mailae-Bryzile Halstead, LPC, NCC
Clinical Mental Health Counselor
Mailae meets her clients where they are, believing they are the expert of their lived experiences.
Mailae Halstead, MS, LPC, is a Nationally Certified Counselor currently based out of Tolland, Connecticut. While much of her work is spent treating PTSD and OCD using empirically supported treatments, she is passionate about practicing psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy that centers cultural humility and empowerment. Mailae is a treatment advisor for the Connecticut, Expanded Access site sponsored by the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelics Public Benefit Cooperation (MAPSPBC) using MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for the treatment of PTSD. She is also a teaching assistant, lecturer, and group facilitator for the Integrative Psychiatry Institute’s Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy training program. Mailae regularly provides ketamine-assisted psychotherapy for the treatment of depression, PTSD, and anxiety. She aspires to contribute to a future with equitable and de-stigmatized access to psychedelic healing. Mailae was born in Houma, Louisiana and is a member of the United Houma Nation — a small Native American tribe indigenous to the southern Louisiana swamplands. Although she deeply embraces her creole-native heritage, her namesake is derived from her father's Japanese-Hawaiian background. Mailae’s name originates from the wildflowers often used to make Hawaiian leis, which symbolize peace, friendship, and love.
