Bringing twenty years of full-time experience and combining the best practices in neural science, military strategy, human behavior, philosophy, and theology, Dr. Smiths's Strategic Counseling Model provides the structural framework to guide you 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 generating motion, creating action, and thus generating healthy change. The five tiers are:
The hallmark of Strategic Counseling is its use of networking with a consortium of leading scientists. These researchers and clinicians specialize in the areas of neural imaging (SPECT scan), emotional trauma (EMDR), environmental stress, discerning safe from unsafe people, establishing healthy relational boundaries, creating real intimacy, generating fulfilling lifestyles, and establishing adequate self care.
This level of professional networking includes case collaboration, psychiatric evaluation, psychological testing, medical evaluation, and sometimes medication management. This professional feedback loop is essential in assisting you toward reaching your established life goals. In essence, the use and application of this systemic network effectively role models and reinforces the team approach toward healthy living.
I look forward to being part of your team as we work together to achieve the best part of your life.
