Stefanie Smith MA, LCMHCA, NCC
Many people can be too hard and not kind enough to themselves. Life is difficult enough, and not being on their own side through those struggles makes it even more so. Whether you’re new to therapy or have some experience with it, starting with a new therapist can be overwhelming. I invite you to a warm, inviting space where you are able to show your full self. I tend to use a holistic and integrative approach. Your sessions are your time and I will meet you where you’re at while providing a therapist viewpoint.
I pull from person centered, cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral and acceptance and commitment theories. I use a strength based and compassionate focused view. I specialize in assisting people with anxiety, depression, life transitions and trauma including religious trauma.
It’s been my observation when people have decided to, with the right support and tools, they are able to empower themselves toward healing. I look forward to connecting with you.
