Theresa Smith

(LPC)

About Me

I have been a licensed professional therapist for 12 years I received my Masters degree from Oral Roberts University in 2008. I have vast experience with many behavioral, social and emotional issues. I started my career working with women who were victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. That transitioned into working with male victims and also perpetrators. This taught me how to help men with their emotional issues. Working in this field I came in contact many people who had substance abuse issues so I studied and pursued education and experience with alcohol and drug counseling. I worked in drug court and private substance abuse counseling for the last 9 years, In my practice I have gained experience helping people with depression, anxiety, trauma, abandonment, PTSD, grief, attachment, shame and anger issues. My approach is client centered therapy incorporating cognitive behavioral therapy, compassion therapy and motivational therapy. I am a Christian. If my clients want spiritual help I will utilize Biblical counseling and prayer. If it will help my patients recover I will utilize it. People who contact counselors for help want to feel safe and respected never shamed or marginalized. I believe they want to be listened to and understood. I treat everyone with compassion . I am looking forward to working with you and helping you have discover healthier mental health and a happier life.

Theresa was very helpful in understanding what I was going through. She was able to take what I was feeling and struggling and find ways I could cope through various thinking exercises and mindfulness activities. She helped me to overall be mindful of my thoughts. Theresa was a big help in my process of overcoming my anxiety.
