Caron Smith
Clinical Social Work/Therapist
Are you hoping to achieve more intimacy and caring in your relationship? Whether you come in by yourself, or as a couple, you can learn the tools of better communication.You can learn how to maintain emotional strength and stability in the midst of open and honest discussion, leading you to the relationship of your deepest desires.

I have been working with couples since 2010, and have received training from the Couples Institute in California. Their Developmental Model helps people open up to their partners in a way that reduces the anxiety of conflict, by working with attachment theory and increasing differentiation skills. Communicate better – love better.
My background has given me the chance to work with a wide variety of people, from inner-city seniors to women seeking reproductive health services. Social justice is the backbone of my practice and I aspire to treat you with the compassion and sensitivity deserved, due to the trust you have put in me.

I am a therapist who works from where people are at, wherever that may be. This involves being non-judgemental, respectful, and providing a safe environment where individuals can work through and explore their personal issues. In the words of the therapist Carl Rogers, it is my hope to instill “unconditional positive self-regard”. When someone enters my office, I try to fully understand, to the best of my ability, that individual’s circumstance so that we can work collaboratively together and meet that person’s goals. Together we explore one’s inner and outer experience.

I often work with people who’s underlying issues are related to anxiety, low self-worth, addiction, and depression. These experiences often can be the result of major life changes, trauma, grief, relationship issues, work stress, or a myriad of other stressors.
I draw from therapeutic tools such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, EMDR (for trauma), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and DBT (for overwhelming emotions), as well as the simple tool of listening and working together to unravel the complexity that is each individual’s life story.

Do you feel stuck in a rut? Stressed by outside commitments or internalized “should dos”? Do you feel unable to action the changes you want in your life? Taking a first step by engaging in counselling can help you not only adjust how you view yourself, others, and your current circumstances, but also – the results of therapy are usually improved functioning and a happier, healthier life. I work primarily with individuals, couples and families utilizing a collaborative, strengths-based approach.

Working together, we will explore the current challenges you are experiencing while finding ways to heal painful experiences from your past that may be impacting your present day functioning. Struggles with self-esteem, identity, depression, anxiety, life transitions, family and intimate relationships can be different. Things can change!
Although this is not an exclusive focus of my work – as a counsellor, parenting facilitator and educator, I do have a depth of understanding related to the specific stressors and challenges experienced by parents, sibling and individuals affected by Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and ADHD.
