VALERIE SMITH, LMFT
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.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
Art + Soul Therapy: I work one-on-one with adults in Fernandina Beach, Florida. In addition to traditional psychotherapy, I use experiential forms of therapy by incorporating art & journaling into my practice.
Clients working with me are committed to Soul Work. Soul Work is an introspective look into oneself with the goal of discovering the "Authentic Self." With more inner clarity, we come to know & design a life that emphasizes our unique gifts & strengths while developing a sense of meaning & purpose. In addition to traditional psychotherapy, I use experiential forms of therapy by incorporating art & journaling into my practice. Though talk therapy is helpful, sometimes in exploring ourselves we may find parts that go beyond verbal articulation. This is where expression & symbolism can provide a voice that verbal communication cannot.
