Brandee Smith

(M.S., LPC, LCDC)

About Me

My dual clinical licensure and specialized training allow me to competently employ clinically appropriate, evidence-based approaches to therapy. Working with diverse groups of client populations and issues is an ongoing professional priority. Through these experiences, my appreciation of the uniqueness of each client continues to grow. Continuing education, life experience, and a desire to positively impact the lives of others, whether in crisis or transition, combine to enhance my effectiveness as a therapist.

My professional experience includes providing group and individual clinical services to children, adolescents, couples, and adults in a variety of community-based settings. I have worked in private practice, as well as acute care inpatient and outpatient hospital settings. Some behavioral health issues I have experience treating include (though are not limited to): trauma, post traumatic stress disorder, chemical dependency, impulse control problems, affair crisis and recovery, anxiety, co-dependency, depression, divorce, sexual issues, and many other general relationship issues. In addition, I am poly/kink friendly.

My educational background includes a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from Texas A&M University, Central Texas; a Master of Arts in Human Services from St. Edward’s University; and a Bachelor of Liberal Studies in Psychology. I am licensed by the state of Texas to practice as both a Professional Counselor and Chemical Dependency Counselor. I have specialized training in the following trauma-focused protocols: Prolonged Exposure (PE) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

I look forward to partnering with you as you begin your personal journey of growth, healing, and/or recovery.

Brandee is amazing! She really encouraged me to find some much-needed perspective on problems in my life and break thinking habits that were standing in my way. The past year has seen a lot of growth and I would encourage anyone I care about to talk to her.

Brandee has been very helpful to me. She listens to me and takes the time to respond clearly in a way that I can understand points she’s making to apply them to my personal situation, feelings, etc. She’s been very patient with me and is extremely knowledgeable in her guidance.

I have been seeing Brandee since January and she is incredible! I cannot recommend her enough. She listens and prioritizes what matters most to me. I have admittedly a lot of years of unacknowledged mental health issues to address and Brandee has been amazingly supportive throughout. She is easy to talk to, nonjudgmental and offers constructive approaches to issues that initially seemed overwhelming. I am absolutely better equipped to handle my everyday stress and history of trauma than I was before we started meeting. If you are seeking a therapist who is present, honest, clear and compassionate definitely set up a session with Brandee!

She's the first Counselor I've had that has listened and understood what I have been faced with and how I feel about it. She's responded very well and has a keen sense of response.

It's so easy to be honest with Brandee during our sessions, which helps me find realistic solutions to my problems. Our sessions are comfortable and casual, and I feel that she can relate to me as a parent, spouse/ex-spouse. Her advice is always helpful and I trust her expertise.

Brandee is very sympathetic and helpful. I appreciate her wisdom and she is teaching how to change my thought process. I am dealing with an alcoholic narcissist husband and getting ready to leave him. Brandee has been helping me to process and make healthier choices I appreciate her very much.

Brandee gets to the heart of the issue and helped me relate various situations to a common theme within myself. She is respectful and patient. She is also able to understand the complexities of a situation and an individual. Brandee is empathetic and has been a helpful counselor for me.
