1401 Peachtree St Suite 500, Atlanta, Georgia 30309
Dr. Matt Smith is a Christian but is more spiritual in his counseling orientation when dealing with client's. I try to elicit positive energy from the client's that I see and focus on the issues from a spiritual perspective without guilt or judging. I was raised in the church and respect all religions and people. I come from the perspective of loving your neighbor as you do yourself.

Your spirituality is very important to your mental health. I respect your beliefs and will work with them in your therapy. I graduated from the Psychological Studies Institute in Atlanta and earned a Diploma in Christian Counseling. The truths found in the Bible make up a foundation for the counseling field. These truths help you on your journey.

Faith and spirituality can provide comfort and meaning to those guided by their beliefs. I was raised in a Christian household myself so I have an appreciation for the values instilled by religion, the importance of tradition, and the strength of community. My approach to counseling is humanistic and welcoming of all spiritualities. Though I do not incorporate any specific pastoral counsel, I encourage my spiritual clients to draw on their beliefs during the counseling process.

Our goal is that each client would have their unique needs met to achieve their personal goals. To that end, we offer faith-based or Christian counseling for those clients who desire it. We look to the client to let us know if they want to incorporate their faith into sessions, and to what extent. We do not assume that every client wants to address spirituality in his or her sessions, and during the first session we work with the client to create a plan to best meet his or her specific needs. Respect is a core value at GROW, and regardless of the client’s politics, worldview, or faith, we seek to meet them where they are and provide resources that will help them reach their individual goals.
