“I knew in college that I wanted to help people manage their mental health issues. It’s an aspect of care that is often neglected.”

Dr. Smith is a licensed psychotherapist who specializes in pediatrics and adolescent medicine.

She is skilled in play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).

She has been counseling for 20+ years and is very involved with NAMI - North Carolina (National Alliance on Mental Illness) and their research. She is a state trainer for their signature program called NAMI-BASICS, which educates parents, families and caregivers of children who may have a mental health diagnosis. She is also a teacher for another evidenced-based NAMI program called Family-to-Family.

Smith is originally from Long Island, New York. She loves nature and fell in love with gardening when she moved to North Carolina.
