Dr. Chaka Smith is committed to providing a welcoming, supportive, compassionate, and healing environment for people seeking positive life changes through classes, workshops, and individual and group psychotherapy.
Dr. Chaka’s goal as a therapist is to provide a comfortable non-judgmental environment for individuals, couples, and families to unpack and manage personal challenges and difficult circumstances.
Group therapy draws on participants’ desire for connection and healing through interactive discussions, learning and process in a safe environment. Through the unique experience of the group process, participants develop the ability to self-reflect, understand themselves in relationship with others, increase their mindful awareness, and communicate more effectively.
from a therapeutic, secular perspective is a conscious awareness of our present moment. This includes openness and non-judgment about the experience. It is often coupled with other types of therapy, such as Cognitive-based Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
