Darrel J. Smith, PsyD, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Beverly Hills
Life can be challenging at times; sadness, hurt, and disappointment can be confusing and difficult. Choosing therapy takes courage, and is an act of self-caring. Congratulations, on this first step! I work with adults of all ages, with individuals and couples. My approach is to be actively engaged using curiosity and compassion, to understand your history, relationships, and struggles. This helps you to better understand yourself, and by us working together you will create new choices in your beliefs and behaviors, that will create positive change in your life.
My doctoral education, many years of clinical practice, as well as my own life experiences, provides me with an excellent background for me to help others. I work with patients who struggle with, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, substance abuse, anger management, trauma, and parenting.
Most importantly, I have a deep and sincere passion for helping people make positive changes that they can sustain throughout their entire life.
