Therapist in Carmel Hamlet, New York Brooke Smith, LMSW

Brooke Smith, LMSW

Brooke Smith, LMSW Brooke Smith is a Licensed Master Social Worker in New York who has been practicing since 2016. Developing a therapeutic alliance where people feel comfortable, seen, and safe feels like magic to Brooke. Those who are seeking therapy all contend with unique challenges. As a social worker, Brooke aims to acknowledge and respect each of her clients as individuals, with a valid and valuable cultural standing. In meeting with a client, it is of the utmost importance that Brooke does not assume their preference or impose her own label. Instead, she has worked hard to treat individuals as complex, multicultural creatures with their own unique sensitivities and motivations. Brooke works with clients to help them identify their desires and empower them to make those positive changes in their life. She understands that making the decision to seek help can be difficult, so she uses an approach that is compassionate, direct, and non-judgmental to help create an environment where everyone feels supported in their counseling journey. She has experience helping individuals overcome trauma, mental health, substance abuse, and legal problems to move beyond their difficulties toward a brighter future. Depending on the individual client and their goals, Brooke uses a variety of different modalities including DBT, CBT, Somatic Processing, MI, and ACT. Carl Jung said the following, and it has always resonated with her: “Know all the theories, master all the techniques, but as you touch a human soul be just another human soul.” In her spare time, Brooke enjoys being silly with her two boys, reading, helping animals (particularly dogs) any way she can, watching The Office, and going to hear live music.
