Professional statement

Dr. Smith is a clinical psychologist based in Aurora, Colorado, but credentialed through PSYPACT to see patients virtually in 22 states.

Dr. Smith has extensive experience working with individuals and couples who are struggling with complex trauma histories, relationship difficulties, depression, issues of identity and sexuality, life transitions, existential, spiritual, and religious crises, and those feeling a lack of meaning in life despite significant success. He is also frequently successful with those who have had unsatisfying experiences with therapy in the past. The people he works with come from all walks of life and backgrounds, but often share a commitment to and longing for a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships.

Dr. Smith approaches each patient's needs with an appreciation for the uniqueness of each person's psychology. Clinical research is useful in helping us understand the average for humans, but no person is the average. Each person is a unique amalgam of experiences, innate temperament, and perspective. A truly depth focused transformative therapy requires an exploration and shared understanding by patient and therapist of the individuals' lived experience in relation to themselves, the people in their lives, and the world around them. In this awareness and the security of the therapeutic relationship the space for choice and change is created.

Dr. Smith has practiced for nine years, the first eight with the United States Army as a civilian psychologist working with intense and complex trauma and relationship difficulties. He is available for virtual therapy in AL, AZ, CO, DE, DC, GA, IL, KY, MN, MO, NE, NV, NH, NC, OK, PA, TX, TN, UT, VA, WV.


Message to clients

To each of you looking to begin therapy or continue it; you are embarking on a worthy endeavor. I always point out to people inquiring about therapy that, just like buying a car, you don't have to settle on the first person you meet. It's appropriate to look around and get a feel for what seems the best fit for you. This is why I do not charge a higher fee for my initial session and offer a free brief phone consultation prior to booking. If you would like a phone consult just reach out by email or phone and we can work out a time.

In the end, whether you work with me or someone else, I wish you the best in your journey and hope that it is transformative and meaningful for you. Live well.


Specialties

Complex Trauma - Though not a formal diagnosis, most practicing therapists recognize a difference between discrete trauma (car accident, singular mugging, etc) and more complex trauma (such as chronic abuse as a child combined with further traumatic experiences in adulthood). This has implications for the length and style of treatment and is the area in which I tend to do my best work.

Borderline personality disorder - Increasing insight into relational patterns and destructive behaviors; development of coping strategies for uncomfortable emotions or situations; skills for emotional identification and regulation.

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) - Healing painful experiences and memories from the past

Couples counseling - Addressing relationship challenges and life transitions; strengthening communication and feelings of security, desire, connection, and love

Attachment issues - Development of effective relational and communication skills; insight into family attachment patterns;fostering healthy family relationships.
