About Heather Smith, LPC

Counselling ServicesAs a Licensed Professional Counselor I strive to be the best at what I do.  Clients find me to be compassionate, caring, and focused on hearing their story.  Often clients reflect to me that their counseling experience has been very positive.  They find that they are able to gain significant insight, perspective, and healing from our sessions. As a counselor I believe you have a great potential for resiliency and healing.  I believe you do the best with the tools you have at any given time and because of that I accept you where you are.   I hold hope for you while you may feel there is no hope at all.

From an early age I had a passion for understanding how people heal.  I wanted to understand just what it is people need to heal from.  My mission has been to help those who hurt. I am living out my life passion and honored to join you on your journey.  If you are curious how I approach therapy, I use a Trauma Informed approach, as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, and Expressive Therapies woven throughout.  I am happy to explain more about what this means and how it actually take places in therapy.

When you are ready, call or contact me via the contact form on this site. I look forward to talking with you and answering your questions.  And, setting up an appointment is easy! (703) 457-6828
