About Frederick Smith, PsyD

Dr. Frederick Smith, PsyD, helps clients see the world through a different lens. His overall goal is to guide clients to improve their quality of life and relationships so that interactions become more meaningful.

Dr. Smith earned an undergraduate degree from Tougaloo College and graduate degrees from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. He works with adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety, intellectual/developmental disorders, learning disabilities, OCD, psychotic disorders, and more.

In therapy, Dr. Smith uses cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness, motivational interviewing, play therapy, reality therapy, solution-focused therapy, and schema-focused therapy. In addition, he employs the three core conditions of therapeutic change: empathy, genuineness, and unconditional positive regard.
