My name is Naomi Smith. I am a licensed master social worker with 23 years of experience in working in mental health and also providing therapeutic services to
Individuals. My primary focus as a clinician is helping my clients meet their needs and build their confidence.
As a therapist, I have the skill to compassionately listen, be non-judgmental, and at all times provide support, encouragement and empowerment. My approach to therapy is simple: “Restoring peace, one day at a time, one piece at a time.” My commitment to my clients is to be open and honest in all my communication and to help each client reach their personal goals. The process of change is a heart issue and that change can only come from within.
I believe every client has a purpose to fulfill and the ability to realize that purpose in their present life. This is why I enthusiastically use Person-Centered Planning with clients. In order to be successful, a client must be willing, dedicated, and committed to accomplishing their individual plan.
My commitment as a therapist is to help guide, impart, and facilitate that change process. The integrity of my character and words are of the highest standard. My communication is honest and open. I am excited and privileged to be a part of your journey to change, success, and a future that looks much brighter. I look forward to working with you!

Ms. Naomi Smith has been a tremendous help since the initial meeting. Her personality (and adorable style) uplifts my spirits alone. She allows clients the time to express themselves and provide effective feedback that helps the client recognize their potential and strengths. Naomi has helped me rediscover the beauty that is within myself and I am so grateful for crossing paths with her.
