Jasset Smith, Psy.D., LMHC| Florida Licensed Psychologist #PY9755

Dr. Smith received her MS In psychology from Florida International University and worked as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor for 6 years prior to receiving her doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Carlos Albizu University.  She completed her predoctoral internship at Broughton Hospital in Morganton, North Carolina, where she focused on diagnosis and treatment of severe mental illness. Dr. Smith has experience conducting psychological assessment with adults, children, and the geriatric population. She has worked extensively with adults who have developed maladaptive personality characteristics as the result of exposure to single-episode, and complex trauma.

Dr. Smith completed her postdoctoral training at the Watershed Addiction treatment programs, where she worked with adults diagnosed with addictive disorders.

 

Dr. Smith conceptualizes client issues holistically. Rather than focus solely on symptom reduction, she identifies maladaptive symptoms, but also larger interpersonal and social issues that may have developed as a result of the psychiatric condition. She has recently published an article titled, Applying Recovery Principles to the Treatment of Trauma, in the APA journal Professional Psychology: Research and Practice (vol.47, issue 4), where she outlines and discusses the benefits of alternative treatments of trauma.

 

Dr. Smith uses a person-centered framework when conceptualizing clients and the issues that they present with. She strongly believes that with the correct support, encouragement, and guidance, clients are able to get in touch with their true selves and begin to resolves issues that are leading to unhappiness and incongruence in their lives.  In her work with children, she uses creative strategies (i.e., art and play) to engage clients and to interpret difficulties that children may be experiencing. She employs cognitive behavioral strategies, when appropriate, and social skills training for youngsters who struggle to adapt in their social environments.
