My name is Dr. Jesse Smith, and I provide therapy to individuals, couples, and families dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, relationships and more. I will help you heal old wounds, form secure attachments, and develop effective ways of managing your thoughts, feelings, and actions.

More Info About My Practice

Relationships are a deep source of satisfaction and meaning in life, but they don’t always come easy. At certain points, you have to work to allow your partner to understand you, resolve conflict, or overcome crisis. Whether in your romantic or your familial relationships, I can help you express yourself effectively to your partner or family member and find mutual understanding, so that you can grow together. If you want rich and rewarding relationships, fortified by strong bonds that can withstand stress, I can help you achieve it.

In your relationships, you can:
Learn effective communication
Establish healthy boundaries
Resolve conflicts
Overcome crisis
Work through past pain
Increase fun and joy
Achieve deep, lasting bonds
Find a shared vision of your life together

Are you struggling with addiction to drugs and alcohol? Do you have other compulsive behavioral problems, such as overeating, gambling, shopping, sex, or money? As someone in long-term recovery from addiction myself, I know how challenging this struggle can be. But I also know that with proper treatment, you can overcome your addiction and lead a full and satisfying life in long-term recovery.

You might be wondering if you have a substance abuse problem, struggling in your early recovery, or feeling stalled at some point in the process. No matter where you are on your recovery journey, I am here to help you at every step of the way—with understanding, compassion, and dignity.

If you are concerned about a loved one’s substance abuse problem, I am here for you as well. Informed by lived experience and proven addiction treatment, I offer individual and family therapy to help you protect yourself, prevent enabling your loved one, and guide you both to the necessary resources for treatment and recovery. My goal is to help you both heal together.
