About Chanay Smith, LCSW

Life is a journey, and there will always be turns and dips. The good thing about life is that there are people like Chanay to help guide you through the ups and downs.

She is here to support them through those times they need an extra hand and to also celebrate their wins, even if they may seem minute. Chanay has a background in Public Health with Medical, Youth, and Elderly Social Work, operating in both the public and private sectors. She has worked with ages ranging from birth to mature and everything in between. Chanay is passionate about client-centered care, focusing on their goals to be successful in their lives. She has training in Solution Focused Behavioral Therapy (SFBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, and Visualization. Chanay has encountered various individuals and relational units wanting to overcome and/or manage anxiety, depression, adjustments, mood changes, stress, and more. She understands how their mental health can sometimes manifest into the physical, and truly believes that people’s health, including mental health, is their wealth. Chanay’s goal is to empower THEM to be a better THEM regardless of the circumstances and what may come. She allows for a non-judgmental zone for them to be able to express themselves freely, unapologetically.
