Jasmynn Smith

(MA, LMFT)

About Me

I earned my M.A. in clinical psychology with a focus in marriage and family therapy from Pepperdine University in 2012. Since then, I have worked extensively with children, adolescents, and adults. Additionally, I have worked as a Residential Assistant in a group treatment home for women with Borderline Personality Disorder and emotion regulation issues. Currently, I work as a primary therapist at an outpatient group practice in the South Bay region of Los Angeles where I provide individual therapy, group skills training, and phone coaching for my clients.

My primary clinical focus is treating anxiety, depression, emotion dysregulation, trauma-related issues, relationship problems, phase of life changes, and difficulty coping with life's day-to-day stressors. I consider myself as a culturally sensitive therapist and have worked with individuals from a variety of cultural, religious, sexual orientation and socioeconomic backgrounds. My primary clinical approach is a utilization of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), which is a research-based approach to treating Borderline Personality Disorder and other emotion regulation issues. I also utilize a cognitive-behavioral approach, which means that my goal, as your therapist, is to help you create positive change in your life through identifying and restructuring self-limiting thoughts and actions. I have a warm and caring approach and am compassionate about your specific needs and life experiences. While I aim to gain an understanding of your concerns, I collaborate with my clients to identify solutions that can lead to changes that my clients are proud of - I want to help you create a life that you are excited to live.

If you're in need of a listening ear and someone who is eager to help you move through life's rough transitions, contact me! I would love to help.

Jasmynn is a caring, compassionate and skilled counselor. She is able to understand your needs, thought patterns, uncover your beliefs, and give you methods for dealing with your challenges. When you're dealing with depression, anxiety, or any sort of mental health issue, things can be frustrating. You can be empty, numb or want to completely pull your hair out. Jasmynn is great for making sense of everything and give you steps for moving forward.

It has been a blessing to receive help from Jasmynn. This is my first time doing therapy, and she is my second counselor on BetterHelp. I am surprised with how open I can be with her- how easily I started trusting her, and how quickly my healing has progressed just after my first live session with her. She has helped me gain awareness on mental health, deepened my compassion for others, and opened my eyes to my own strength. It has been an empowering experience so far.
