Valarie Smith, LCSW

We have all that we need already inside of us. Therapy can be a process of uncovering those things that we’ve forgotten or unlearned as we developed necessary coping behaviors as children. Whether you’re wanting to better manage anxiety and/or depression, increase communication and relationship skills or are interested in exploring your shadow side, I’m excited that you’re considering therapy. My goal is to partner with you and work together as you dig deeper, uncover insights, and make changes that can result in a life better than you ever imagined. I’ll help you find your own truth and to grow more fully into yourself.

People are complicated (!) and I look at the “whole” of individuals: emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual. I’m person-centered and psychodynamic. I look through a CBT lens to explore your thoughts and beliefs about self. I integrate other perspectives, including nature and spirituality as appropriate.

Self-reflection and exploration can be scary, hard work at times, AND also super rewarding. I’m passionate about joining others on their journey of introspection and self-discovery. I invite you to lean into the unknown with curiosity, look with self-compassion, and take the next step in your personal growth and healing journey. Call me for a free consultation.
