Dr. Smith provides a warm and nurturing atmosphere to help women feel comfortable. Dr. Smith's manner invites a sense of security that makes the sharing and addressing of current issues, as well as exploration of their origins, non-threatening. Through her extensive work with children and families, Dr. Smith has gained an exceptional understanding of how women's beliefs about themselves and others come to be. These beliefs lead to corresponding behaviors.
During therapy sessions with Dr. Smith, women learn how to stop using habitual responses to stress and start managing upset in a way that helps them feel better. Healthy relationships start with the one we have with ourselves. Intimate, familial and career relationships shift when we change our thoughts and behavior. Dr. Smith enjoys helping women realize their worth, find compassion for themselves, make meaning of their life's circumstances and grow emotionally.
