Clare Smith

MSW, LCSW

Please note that I am still requiring clients to wear masks

for in-office appointments.

I am so excited to work with people using creative modalities to help them find themselves and grow. I work primarily with kids and teens using Play Therapy, Art Therapy and EMDR to give them an accessible way to communicate about and process whatever life throws their way. I have a lot of experience and training in working with trauma and helping families heal from it. I am very comfortable working with the following mental health conditions and more:

  • ADHD

  • PTSD & Dissociative Disorders

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

  • Anxiety

  • Depression and other mood disorders


In addition, I am also able to help individuals understand and cope with the following issues:

  • Bullying

  • Stress Management

  • LGBTQ

  • Gender Identity & transgender health care support

  • Divorce- child coping

  • Trauma

  • Social Skills

  • Self-esteem

  • Anger Management

  • Parental skill education & support


Mindfulness, radical self-acceptance, Internal Family Systems, and EMDR have been a particular focus for me personally and professionally. I believe in creating a non- judgmental environment for clients and families to tell their stories in a way that is most comfortable for them. I am LGBTQ affirming and have worked with clients of many different backgrounds. I connect well with children, adolescents, and young adults and deeply enjoy helping families learn to communicate and treat each other with kindness.
