Approach: “My approach is patient-centered, supportive, and collaborative. When a patient or their loved ones come to see me, I bear in mind the difficulty it is for some to discuss their innermost thoughts, feelings, or issues with a stranger. I provide a confidential, safe, and warm environment for my patients. We will develop a patient-doctor relationship and I will be accessible to you. During our first session, I will ask questions about your psychiatric history, lifestyle (diet, exercise, and sleep patterns), medical, trauma, and social history in order to get to know you. We will discuss your psychiatric symptoms, explore general medical conditions that could be linked to your mental health issues, and focus on any noted nutritional deficiencies. My goal is to discover who you are by meeting you where you are.  I use evidence-based treatments that include a combination of medication, appropriate lifestyle changes such as diet modification, physical activity, sleep management, and supplementation with vitamins and/or minerals. I believe in prevention and patient empowerment. I focus heavily on teaching patients ways to reduce their depression/anxiety and increase their focus/motivation so they can better create the life they desire. I look forward to meeting you.”


Patients who have worked with Dr. Smith describe her as compassionate, kind, thorough, knowledgeable, warm, and accessible. Dr. Smith is now accepting new patients and follow-up appointments virtually and in-person.
