My name is Naomi Smith. I have a bachelor degree in Criminal Justice with a concentration in corrections and a Master in Social Worker Degree with a concertation in clinical and macro social work.
From the time I started my educational career I knew I was called to evangelize those who were seeking directions in coming to know more about Jesus Christ. This is why I was lead to work with populations that could only been seen from being inside. I have worked in residential programs, drug recovery programs, psychiatrist crisis homes, jails, men and women prisons in the last 20 years.
It was in these places that I was able to combine my Bibical education with the principles of psychology to provide support, hope, faith and encouragement to improve my client’s relationship God.
The ultimate goal for each of my clients was to identify and address behaviors and ways of thinking's that were inconsistent with Gods Word. They believe the Bible to be the truth for their life and so do I. My therapeutic approach is simple. It is meeting the client where they are without judgments, with compassionate listening and with honest and open communication. The issue is a change of heart that God can change. All you need to be is willing. I look forward to working with you.
