Matthew Smith, Psy.D.
1401 Peachtree St Suite 500, Atlanta, GA 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.

Christianity is a religion that, when founded, was built around a concept of freedom. Christianity was never intended to be the shackles around your feet, but the key, the grace that sets you free. Using a biblically-based approach we will address your concerns in light of the grace of Jesus. Recognizing that even within the Christian faith there are differing opinions and views on spirituality, you will decide the extent to which spirituality is discussed and used within each counseling session.

I believe in the power and gifts of the Holy Spirit. With God, ANYTHING is possible. That is why I specialize in the impossible. Although I do not have formal training in theology, I am a Christ-follower and my most powerful therapy sessions are the ones centered around Christ. Here you will find the love and grace of God evidenced in me and our therapy sessions. Allow the Holy Spirit to guide us both.

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.

I give my clients the opportunity to utilize scripture when substituting dysfunctional thoughts with healthier thought patterns. I also utilize visualization and art when helping clients minimize the effects of trauma or abuse from the past. These unhealthy childhood messages no longer have to dominate your present or predict your future. I believe many people are living as captives when freedom is available.

While most Christian Counselors pride themselves on how many Scriptural passages they can recite and how many links they can make from the Bible to psychological disorders, the Christian-centric work of Grey Matters International, Inc.is grounded in one principle: truth. For us, the work is more about truth and transparency of Christ's message and working on the natural laws of accountability and decision making that evolves from that. If one honors God's natural laws of reaping and sowing around the decisions one makes, one is indeed living Scripture to its fullest. We prepare the brain to better maximize the spiritual realities of Christ's words. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Christian counseling is precisely what I've been called by God to practice! In addition to my extensive medical training as a psychiatrist, I've also taken 60 hours of CE classes and have become a certified Biblical counselor. I open and end every session with prayer. All of my work with my patients is essentially Christian counseling, since I'm a Christian psychiatrist.

As a pastor for many years, I have helped many clients to find grace, victory, and healing through their faith in the Almighty God. I value Biblical principles that can help Christian or Jewish in counseling sessions. clients who are willing to submit their wills to the Higher power can find divine assistance through prayer. God still works miracle today through intercessory prayers.

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.
