Reframe + Insight + Practice = Transformation
What Can I Help You With?
Though people come to me with a variety of struggles that I help them work through, my areas of specialty are Relationships, Boundaries and Intimacy (dating, marriage, family, organizations), Anxiety and Depression, Faith and Spirituality, Grief and Loss, and Self-Care and Wellness.
What you can gain in working with me:
- Identify the connection between your underlying emotions (root issues) and negative actions.
- Identify the connection between your truth/true self and positive actions.
- Reframe your struggles as an opportunity for growth. How do these struggles help inform you of what you need to pay attention to?
- Create exercises that help you foster awareness and put into practice the insight you have gained, in order to create more permanent change.
- Provide you with tools that will help you practice, manage, and actively work through your struggles.
- Develop an applicable plan for ongoing growth in your life.
- A focus on attachment, emotional regulation, mindfulness and skills practice.
We have referred people to Rhett Smith for several years now. We know that we will get compassionate, educated and experienced counsel for our people. It’s been great to hear so many people talk about the change that has come to their lives as they deal with their pain in an easy to understand and an easy to implement plan of help and care. Personally, Rhett has meant the world to me and has been a massive part of my journey to health and wholeness. With the greatest confidence, I believe Rhett too can be a great resource in your journey to be the kind of person you want to be as you relate to yourself and to the world in which you interact.Broc Jahnke
As a marriage ministry pastor, I am often asked to refer people to reliable therapists. I feel confident referring people to Rhett Smith because Rhett is grounded in techniques that truly help people, he is sensitive to others and he leads people toward restoration and healing.Sonya Jacobs

RUNNING (OR WALKING) THERAPY
Ru“What it means is that you have the power to change your brain. All you have to do is lace up your running shoes.”
I love to run and running is my own personal therapy.
I have run my entire life. Always for fun, whether it was in grade school field day, running for sports in high school, or the enjoyment I have found over the last 13 years racing everything from 5K’s to 50 mile races.
I believe that running can change your life, and the science is there to prove that this is true. So whether you would like to start running, or walking, I know that physical movement during therapy tends to enhance one’s insight, creativity and hope.
If you are interested in moving your therapy sessions outdoors for a walk or a run, I welcome all levels of people, from those who have barely gotten off the couch, to those who are completing 100 mile ultra races. Running sessions are dependent upon availability and time of day.
Running sessions are only available in a 110 minute session block, in the last block of my working day.
