Lydia Smith, LPCC
I am a licensed professional clinical counselor in Ohio. I earned a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Ashland Theological Seminary.
I have experience working in a non-profit community mental health agency and private practice. I have volunteered in prisons, juvenile detention centers, substance abuse centers, schools, and churches.
Working with a diverse clientele of adolescents, adults, couples, and groups addressing varying mental health needs. I believe the human connection is the place of healing and help create a space of trust and acceptance. I use a non-judgemental, holistic approach that is client-centered.
Helping clients learn mindfulness from a cognitive behavioral therapy lens in an affirming environment to help with depression, anxiety, women's issues, stress, spiritual issues, self-esteem, parenting, relationship issues, coping skills, emotion regulation, and other mental health issues.
In my free time I enjoy being active and singing in church choir. Music has always been a part of my life and continues to offer expression and healing. I earned a Bachelors degree in Music Education from The Ohio State University and enjoy marching in the alumni game once a year when I can.
