Martha Smith, LCPC

Individual, Couples, & Family Psychotherapist

Martha Smith (she/her/hers), MS, LPC, Board-Certified Approved Supervisor, brings over 5 years of dedicated counseling experience, specializing in providing comprehensive support to underrepresented populations, particularly BIPOC individuals, and LGBTQIA+ communities. Her academic achievements include a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology, both earned from McDaniel College.

Martha’s therapeutic approach is deeply rooted in empathy and inclusivity. As a staunch LGBTQIA+ ally and with lived experience in the Black community, she fosters a safe and affirming space for clients. Martha employs an eclectic therapeutic strategy, drawing from a range of approaches to best suit the needs of her clients. Her eclectic approach includes elements of Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioral, Narrative, and Solution-Focused interventions, all guided by a person-centered philosophy.

Martha’s clinical expertise spans a wide spectrum, including anxiety, depression, family and peer conflicts, life transitions, racial and cultural identity issues, stress management, and trauma. While she has experience working with clients of all ages, Martha’s primary focus lies in providing support to traditional college-age and older individuals seeking guidance through life’s challenges.

Central to Martha’s philosophy is the belief in empowering clients to embrace the present moment and cultivate positive change in their lives. She often uses the metaphor of planting seeds of change, guiding clients to nurture and witness the growth of their personal transformation.

Outside of her professional endeavors, Martha cherishes spending quality time with her partner, their child, and their two dogs. She enjoys activities such as bowling, binge-watching TV shows, swimming, and traveling in their RV, finding solace and joy in adventure in the company of loved ones.
