Dr. Veronica Smith


About me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in Maryland with over 10 years of experience working as a therapist and substance abuse treatment counselor. I have worked with clients having a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and brief/solution-focused counseling. In addition, I'm also a Christian counselor who is experienced with integrating faith, Biblical principles, and practical counseling methods to aid in the recovery process. It is my belief that prayer and scripture are essential tools that can assist the Christian believer in decision-making as well as promote healing from past experiences that have been traumatic and long-lasting. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

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 listened and allowed me to speak freely about my feelings.
