Dion Smith, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #LMFT140139

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), I have extensive experience working with individuals, couples, families, and groups dealing with a wide array of challenges. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, relationship problems such as codependency, infidelity, or other concerns, trauma, anger, grief, addiction, or other issues, I would be honored to walk with you to discover a better way forward in Christ. With patience and attentiveness, I will listen to your story as you share what is on your mind and heart. Together with God’s help we will establish practical steps toward achieving the goals you set for yourself.

Santa Monica – Mon & Fri
Los Angeles – Tue, Wed, & Thu

I offer a welcoming, compassionate environment where you can feel seen and heard – key elements for improving self-confidence. One of my goals as your therapist is to help you become more comfortable expressing yourself and allowing others to see you for who you are. As your counselor, I will partner with you to develop the skills needed to find balance between mind, body, and spirit so you can effectively navigate the challenges of life. We will work together to address any difficulties you’re facing so you can continue to live the life God has called you to live.

My Goal as a Christian Counselor

My primary goal for my clients is for them to improve their own self-awareness so that they can have an improved self-esteem. My hope is that we will develop a working therapeutic relationship that allows each individual to feel comfortable expressing their authentic selves so we can get to the heart of the matter and establish a catered treatment plan to meet their specific needs.

What I Offer in Christian Counseling

I offer a comfortable, supportive environment that allows you to be your genuine self. With a conversational approach, I will spend time getting to know you, listening patiently and attentively to your concerns in order to determine the best path forward. Based on your unique situation, I will work with you develop an individualized treatment plan using a combination of proven therapeutic methods from a faith-based perspective in order to best serve your needs.

My Approach to Christian Counseling

One benefit of incorporating a Christian perspective into therapy is that using Scripture is a great resource for improving one’s value system. Also, seeking a higher power helps us realize that there are issues that develop in our lives that are out of our control, and that’s okay. As a Christian counselor, it’s a joy to be able to treat the whole person – mind, body, and spirit – as part of the overall therapy experience. My own faith continues to teach me to be humble and to realize I am not meant to know all the answers. By coming together with others, seeking to align ourselves with God and His will, we can build a better understanding and make lasting progress, with His help.

It is such a pleasure to know and work with a wonderful therapist. He is very hands on and intuitive with the client’s. I highly recommend Mr. Smith to all that are seeking one on one therapy. Great 👍 job Mr. Smith! …
