Monica T. Smith is an experienced mental health professional with a wide range of counseling experience in community mental health, partial hospitalization, inpatient psychiatry, crisis services, and private practices. Her strong foundation in the fundamentals of psychotherapy is complemented by her understanding and study of the ever-growing field of neuroscience. Through the use of integrative and holistic treatment, such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), energetic medicine and nutritional medicine, her focus is on helping her clients heal, by addressing the underlying cause of symptoms. She believes that the mind and body have an innate ability to heal, and will always move towards a state of balance and equilibrium when allowed to. This is the premise of her work with clients.
