Licensed Professional Counselor

Kali Smith, MS, LCMHC

Adulting is hard, and I will support you through all the stress and help you with anxiety, depression, grief, relationship problems, and other distress. I believe that the time you spend outside of therapy is even more important than the time spent in it, so I provide you with tools to take with into the real world. You and I will work together to identify concrete, attainable goals for your treatment and then guide you along the path we create. 

My Education and Experience

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina. I received a Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University. While working towards my degree, I completed a practicum and internship at a large mental health practice in Raleigh, NC. During that time, I provided counseling services to both male and female adult clients. 

My Approach to Therapy

I primarily draw from the cognitive behavioral approach to therapy, but I am largely a person-centered therapist who seeks to meet you where you are and proceed from there. Unconditional positive regard is a forefront of my therapy philosophy, as I know that acceptance alone is healing. I see myself as your equal, not an authority figure. Therapy is a journey we take together. I will weave elements of solution-focused and interpersonal psychotherapy into my therapeutic approach when appropriate. 

A Little More About Me

 

I have been part of Etheridge Psychology for more than eight years now. In my free time, I knit like crazy and spend copious amounts of time with my pets.
