I’m Dr. Ashley Smith, a licensed clinical psychologist with over a decade of experience working with anxiety and obsessive compulsive spectrum disorders as well as related conditions like depression, eating disorders, body focused repetitive behavior disorders, and tics. I practice evidence-based treatment, which means combining the latest research with your individual needs to get the best outcomes possible.
Research clearly shows that cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the most effective type of therapy for anxiety disorders, and CBT strategies will form the basis of our work together. You, however, are not just your disorder. Incorporating the latest science and practice from positive psychology, which focuses on building strengths and making more of the “good stuff,” will help ensure that you are treated as a whole person. Together, we will work to get your symptoms under control and focus on building the life you want to live!
