Outpatient Mental Health Professional
More About Latrice Smith
I am currently attending an online program for my B.S. degree in Social Work. It is my dream to become a Play Therapist and work with children to overcome their triggers, trauma's and support them in achieving their goals. After I obtain my B.S. degree and onto my Master's degree, I want to achieve multiple certifications in different therapies (DBT, EMDR, and Play Therapy) to better support multiple populations in our community.
My expertise is working with children who have disabilities (ASD, DD and EBD). I like using a holistic approach with my clients and supporting them in their decisions and needs. I love coming up with fun and creative ideas based on the specific interests of my client (pokemon, beyblades, Minecraft etc.) to help motivate them to stay engaged in our sessions. I have taken classes in Trauma Informed Care and Diversity in Social Justice to better my understanding in supporting clients in our community.
The current activities that I like to do is solving rubik's cube puzzles, playing card games such as uno and phase 10, and playing chess. I also like to go hiking, traveling, kayaking and being outside in my garden.
