Professional statement

Dr. Amy Danielle Smith is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in Denver, CO. She specializes in supporting clients through grief, and works with individuals, couples, and families including parents. Dr. Smith’s clients arrive at therapy feeling lost in their grief, whether that’s the loss of a job, a loved one, a pet, a relationship, a pregnancy, or a period of life. They feel isolated and overwhelmed by feelings like sadness, anger, frustration, disappointment, and confusion. Dr. Smith helps them through these emotions and to process through their loss to find a new sense of peace. She also works with those who struggle with anxiety, trauma, burnout, or change. 

 

Dr. Smith understands the complexity of grief and how grief tends to interact with other emotions, sometimes in surprising ways. She is an empathetic therapist who listens and validates the experiences of her clients. By creating a kind, compassionate space in therapy, Dr. Smith guides clients as they process through the pain from their loss. In couples’ and family sessions, Dr. Smith provides communication skills to help each client speak openly and vulnerably. All clients benefit from the exploratory and solution-focused nature of their therapy sessions. 

 

Dr. Smith earned a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and a PhD in Applied Developmental Science from Colorado State University. She particularly enjoys giving clients the therapeutic space they need to be themselves as they navigate challenging times in their lives.
