Hello, My name is Nikkiah W. Smith and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. In 2003, I received my Master’s Degree in Human Development with a Specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have over 15 years of experience providing individual, group and family counseling services to children, teens, and adults. I have extensive experience addressing for clients with depression, anxiety, trauma, mood disorders, decision making, stress, family conflict and communication. I have worked in various settings including an outpatient clinic, private practice, schools, home and community, residential, group home and a foster care agency. I provide counseling services primarily from a cognitive-behavioral, strengths-based framework. I am interested in helping families and couples re-discover love and understanding and interested in helping individuals, young and older, access change that propels their lives into new and promising directions.
