Hello, my name is Evalee and I am a licensed clinical social worker in Georgia and South Carolina with over 20 years of experience working in mental health and social services as a counselor. I graduated from Savannah State University with a Master's degree in Social Work with a clinical concentration. I have worked in a variety of settings with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, Bipolar disorder, relationship issues, parenting problems, life changes, OCD, ADHD, ODD, anger management skills, LGBTQ related issues, intellectual disabilities, women's issues, and caregiver stress. I also helped many people who have experienced trauma and abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach to therapy combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, mindfulness, solution focused, psycho-education, and psychodynamic counseling. I approach therapy from a person centered and strengths based perspective. Your treatment plan will be individualized to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek improved mental health. It is brave to take this step, and I am here to support you in a safe and understanding environment to empower you.
I am able to work with children, youth, teens, adults, older adults and couples.
I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Evalee Smith. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Evalee is wonderful. She consistently provides excellent insight and non-judgmental soundboarding. Could not ask for better.
I loved meeting you today. I think you are a great fit for me. I can't wait until next week. I scheduled for the morning AFTER I arrive in Maui. 1pm PST, 10am Hawaiian, 4pm your time lol! See you then. Thank you for encouraging me to go. I needed permission to be selfish and to take some healing time alone. Also, for teaching me the concept of re-framing what I'm telling myself, to be more supportive of myself, my self care and my inner spirit. See you next Wednesday!!
She is super kind and understanding but also checks you when you need it. She helped me a lot with teaching me new skills and with other things as well. I believe that her other patients are lucky to have someone so genuine and understanding to help them on their journey like she did with me. I really appreciate everything that she helped me through.
Evalee is punctual, she listens well, provides appropriate feedback. Asks questions I don't want to answer....which is the point of therapy. I appreciate her and her approach. Looking forward to more sessions.
Eva Lee has been a God send. She has taken a crisis on my life and allowed for me to be able to talk through it and make it manageable with goal setting.
I've been receiving therapy from Evalee for about a year now and she has always had an innate ability to walk the line between caring and supportive and practical and productive. In this way Evalee gives me the guidance to make real progress in my life while also having the confidence to actually try it.
Amazing! This is our 2nd session! Very satisfied.
Evalee, is always encouraging and has really helped me think through my current issues.
Kind and thoughtful
Evalee is patient, attentive, and focused. She has a calming energy that feels supportive, compassionate, and reassuring. I look forward to her grounding presence each week.
Evalee is a very good listener, and she is really on point with her exercises and techniques. I’ve had OCD and its accompanying quirks and anxiety for most of my life. I thought some of them were insurmountable. And I almost can’t believe how quickly I’ve made significant progress in such a short time.
You have to do the work. But her guidance in regard to *what* to work on and *how* to work on it has been sensational. I went to her almost out of desperation, but I didn’t have much in the way of good expectations. I’ve never been so happy to report how wrong I was to be cynical.
Evalee is utterly fantastic.
Evalee has been wonderful. I was EXTREMELY lucky to have chosen her. She is kind, smart, and thoughtful. She’s also a great listener. Couldn’t recommend her more highly!
So far I’m loving our calls. I’m excited about continuing this journey
Evalee Smith is a knowledgeable & compassionate therapist. She is insightful & will recommend different therapy treatments that are very useful. I recommend her highly.
She listened very well I like the way she listened to me.
Very attentive kind and knowledgeable
Very kind and un-assuming. listens the tone and feeling of what you're saying, and is able to ask the questions you need to be asked, even if you're unwilling or incapable of starting the conversation.
She makes me feel heard, understood, and valid. I higher recommend her.
She was nice and patient with me. Her availability was good. She helped me discover new things about myself, and some aha moments. I would see her again.
Evalee is supportive yet knows what’s the best course for my improvement. She understands yet challenges me. Her advice is sound.
Evalee has been a great help. With her tools and resources, she has set me up for mental health success. Thank you for being there for me :)
I was seeing another therapist before Evalee on better help for a couple months and I've had 3 sessions with Evalee. Evalee has made me feel so much more comfortable opening up and makes me feel like she actually cares and is listening. She helps me come up with solutions to the problems in my life and helps me feel confident in my decisions. I still have a lot to work on but I feel like Evalee can really help me help myself
Evalee is a wonderful listener who understands how I am feeling and how to approach my situation. I appreciate her insight.
Evalee has been a great counselor. She has help guide me through some mentally challenging situation. Listened to me when all I wanted to do is vent. She has added some more tools to help me navigate through some mentally challenged areas. I would recommend her.
Evalee is a kind, tender woman. She remembers everything I’ve spoken to her about, and every session gets better and better. If I do counseling with my spouse, I would try to have her to that as well. She’s great.
Evalee is amazing! She always listens to me and is always affirms how I feel.
She is absolutely amazing, she has been so helpful for me
Very helpful, kindhearted, and just overall always a great experience chatting with her.
Loved her very very great help to me
Evalee listens carefully and gives poignant advice when prompted. Highly recommend
Evalee has been wonderful during our sessions. She listens and helps me figure out what it is I am looking for out of therapy as well as helping guide me during our sessions. Better than any in person therapy I have had.
This is my first time doing online therapy. Her voice is very calm. She is a great listener and great person to talk to.!
Evalee is very kind and sweet. She takes time to listen to me about my day and makes my emotions feel very valid. I'm happy that I have her as my counselor.
Evalee is excellent at her job.
100 percent the best sincerely the most awesome person to help me though my issues/ problems
Evalee is a compassionate and caring counselor. She validates my feelings and offers options for working through difficult situations in my life. She provides great guidance on how to handle various issues that we discuss. I truly appreciate her and am grateful that BetterHelp connected us!
Excellent listener, excellent advice
I appreciate the help I’m getting from her. Even though I haven’t been counseling with her that long, I know our sessions will get better with time.
Evalee is the BEST. She listens, gives great advice, and will tell you exactly how it is.
Evalee has been a very calming constant in my efforts to better my anxiety. She has a soothing presence and listens to me without any judgement. Evalee has given me practices that has been helpful to me throughout the week and not just in our weekly video calls. I also like filling out journal entries when I am having thoughts that need to be put down. It gives you an option to post it for your counselor to see. She always responds that she has read them and helps her understand. For some reason, it is nice knowing she takes the time to read my thoughts and hardship. Evalee has been a wonderful counselor that puts me at ease when we video call despite my awkwardness at times. I definitely recommend her.
Evalee is a fantastic listener. For real one of the good ones.
