Hi, my name is Racquel Smith, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Florida. I earned my Master of Social Work and my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Hunter College in New York City. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including infertility, parenting issues, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, and loss and grief. I also helped many people who have end of life concerns.
My treatment style is laid back but warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines person centered therapy, solution focused therapy, narrative therapy, and motivational interviewing. I also look at a person’s strength because we are always our biggest critic. I believe everyone has tools in their tool kit to build on their strengths and I am here to guide you. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I meet my clients where they are and work collaboratively, at their pace, to make them feel safe and supported.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

She has been a light and a comfort to me and I'm sure many, many others. Thank you, Racquel, for being among the truly compassionate humans who give people like me the strength to keep hoping for more!

So far, Racquel has been an amazing counselor and friend to me. We have only had a few sessions, but I can already tell how committed she is to my growth and well being. She is very trust worthy and I feel as if I can share anything with her.
Racquel spots my truth and helps me name it. She holds me to my word, even when she's being patient with my slow growth and avoidance!
I enjoy chatting with Racquel. She helps put thinga into perspective for me and chatting with her takea my mind of things.
