Sonja Buckles-Smith, LCMHCS
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
I am an experienced clinician who is dedicated to helping adults understand and better manage life's stressors and complexities.
I strive to help people discover their purpose, increase self-awareness, and empower them to be the outstanding individuals they are capable of being. By exploring and addressing the three components of the self: Mind, Body and Spirit; we will work together to help restore balance, meaning and purpose in your life. With the use of Cognitive Behavioral therapy, I work to help you resolve and better manage issues associated with depression, anxiety, work related stress and relationships.
Our working relationship is designed to elicit positive change and confront roadblocks that are blocking you from a sense of fulfillment, satisfaction and purpose in your life. By discarding emotional baggage, often years of hurt, pain, guilt and shame; you can rediscover your purpose, live a more fulfilling life, and regain your natural balance.
