Meet Your Therapist
Greetings and welcome! My name is Kelly. I live and work in the Dallas, Texas area and specialize in systems-oriented psychotherapy for adult individuals (age 21+).
I'm here to collaborate with you toward discovering and connecting to your true self and living the life you really want, given all our imperfections and the uncertainty and inherent pain of human life. For all of us, there are things (distressing issues, emotions, behavior patterns, events, "symptoms," etc.) that get in the way of this, and sometimes therapy can be helpful with getting back on track . . . getting unstuck. I'd like to help.
You may or may not want to know all this about me . . . some people do: My formal education and professional training is focused on human behavior in work contexts, systems theory, systems-oriented therapy, and individual psychotherapy (MBA with specialization in organizational behavior, MS in family studies, MS in family therapy, and PhD in depth psychology with specialization in integrative therapy practices).
Below, under "Services," you'll find more information about my focus areas and scope of practice, the therapeutic approaches I apply, and my session fees. I accept HSA/FSA cards and all major credit cards, and I am in-network with some insurance plans.
If you think you might be interested in working with me, we can start with a preliminary consultation over video (15 min., no charge). Sessions after that can be in person, in my physical office in North Dallas, OR in my virtual office if you're anywhere in Texas.
Feel free to reach out to me through the "Contact" form at the top of this page if you have any questions. (small icon that looks like an envelope.) I can't wait to meet you!
Dr. Kelly Smartt
