Gina Smith, LMFT
About this pro
I have been a practicing psychotherapist for nearly 18 years, and my work is to simply help people remember what they have always known, but had forgotten.. I am particularly good at listening from the heart, and helping others make sense of their life stories. It is essential for there to be a good fit between client and therapist, and not every therapist will be a good match for every client. I have been called straight shooting, direct, insightful, intuitive,and honest. I strive to be non judgmental, and to be fair and unbiased. Authenticity is important if therapeutic work is to be successful, on the part of all involved. I take my work very seriously, and do all I can to provide the guidance and support needed to help my clients achieve their goals. I am honored at the openness people are willing to offer me, and that level of trust nearly always results in satisfying and profound change. This is gratifying , humbling and satisfying to be a part of.
Customers rated this pro highly for professionalism, responsiveness, and punctuality.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Generally, I charge $80. a session, but I really hope that money will not prevent someone from seeking help. Therefore, I am willing to discuss a sliding scale fee. Please note, I am only able to accept insurance from CT residents.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Beginning to create a safe space, by getting to know the person, or persons seeking therapy. learning who they are, and when they are ready, what they are hoping to achieve during the therapeutic process.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My first training was a Diploma in Humanistic Psychology which I earned in Cornwall, UK. I went on to get extensive training in bereavement, particularly as experienced by children,and served as the Clinical Director of the Cove Center for Grieving Children in CT for 3 years. I attended Southern CT State University, and graduated with my Masters degree in Marriage and Family therapy in 1999. During that time,I also received training in Gestalt therapy, and Human Sexuality. I participated in a two year training at the Center for Human Growth and Development in Colchester, CT which focused on trauma treatment and resolution using bioenergetic therapy, among other modalities.
