I am a mental health counselor licensed in Florida and Michigan with over 11 years of experience; I have worked in a variety of settings including community health, inpatient and outpatient psychiatric and substance abuse facilities, and corrections. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, addictions, trauma, and LGBT-related issues. I earned my Bachelor's of Arts in History and Psychology at Florida State University as well as my Master's of Arts in Mental Health Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy at Webster University in Jacksonville, Florida.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral, and solution-focused counseling. I will collaborate with you to develop a plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to make the first step in order to make a change toward a more fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to take that step and put in the work, I am here to support and empower you!
I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kimberly 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.
I love Kimberly, with my previous therapist I never felt understood. In contrast, with Kimberly, not only do I feel heard and seen but she also provides amazing guidance/tools to cope with everyday life. I'm able to navigate life more freely and confidently while feeling supported in the decisions I make. :)
Kimberly is one of the best counselors i’ve ever had! She listens, she is very thorough and wants the best for you. The tips that she shares and gives have helped me tremendously. If you’re looking for a counselor that you want to feel comfortable and close with, I highly recommend Kimberly!
Kimberly is a great listener and understands what my issues and concerns are.
I like Kimberly. She checks up on me every now and then even though we don't have a session scheduled. This really helps me a lot because I know I can reach out to someone outside of my session - anxiety doesn't wait for sessions. Thanks, Kimberly!
She has been amazing and able to assist me no help me think through and talk through my issues...she has helped so much with seeing the mistakes I have made with my communication and how I process information. Kimberly has been a great counselor for me during a difficult time
