EDUCATION FROM 1984 to 2015
Bringing twenty one years of full-time experience and combining the best practices in neural science, spirituality, human behavior, philosophy and theology, Dr. Smith’s Strategic Counseling Model provides the structural framework to guide clients through the difficult process of change. Dr. Smith’s approach toward healthy change carefully balances a progressive and strategic format while still maintaining the sensitivities needed for healing in a client centered approach. The Strategic Counseling Model is built from the ground up on a five-tiered model for problem identification, generating motion, creating and maintaining action, thus generating healthy change. The five tiers are neural (brain) science, attachment theory (connection & intimacy), emotional trauma recovery (of PTSD using EMDR), spiritual awareness (Mindfulness) and physical health (self-care).
