Professional statement

Raveen Smith is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in New York where she welcomes both adolescents and adults who are seeking to create change in their lives. Many of her clients struggle with trauma, anxiety, depression, and life transitions.

The symptoms of anxiety and depression can take a toll on you and begin to affect relationships, increase stress even impact performance at work. Raveen works with clients to explore core beliefs about themselves and the systems they exist within.

Raveen offers a person-centered approach to treatment and is committed to helping you improve the overall quality of your life. She offers a safe, nonjudgmental space and will help you gain the tools you need to start your therapy journey.

In starting with a new client, Raveen’s first priority is ensuring that they feel safe, validated, and like an equal partner in the therapy relationship. As a telehealth provider, she offers the convenience of remote sessions to help make therapy more accessible.

Message to clients

Whether you are considering therapy for the first time or have attended therapy in the past, I’m excited to share this new journey with you. It’s refreshing to have a safe space to openly express yourself, discuss things that are important without being judged. My hope is that during our time together, you are able to identify and conquer all that comes your way.

Therapy is an important decision and it requires dedication to improving yourself. Typically, sessions are scheduled weekly. During our time together, I plan to help you identify useful tools and skills needed to improve your wellbeing.

Please reach out if you have any questions. I am happy to assist in any way I can.
