About this Service

Welcome! My name is Karla Smith and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Missouri. I have over 25 years of experience counseling individuals and couples. I love my job! Having the privilege to work with others as they use their courage to acknowledge what needs to be addressed and changed in their lives to grow and transform is awesome to witness. I specialize in working with depression, trauma, anxiety, grief, relationships, codependency and low self-esteem issues.

My approach is client centered for sure. You are the expert on yourself. I will provide clinical “tools” to help you make the modifications needed to reach your goals. Together we will explore what is distressing you, identify what you want to achieve with counseling and create a treatment plan to get you there. I respect your courage to take this action step to get the assistance you need to make this happen.

I look forward to working with you!
