    There is nothing but great things to say about Vicki. Her approach has helped me understand who I am, the why's and the how's of the way I am; and above all, how to better myself and as a result, become a happier person.

    Vicki is an exceptional therapist. I had poor experiences with therapy before going to her and she turned everything around. She is very thoughtful and works in a way that is tailored to each individual. The environment is comfortable and safe. She also provides the patient with the tools to move forward on their own once they get to a certain point.

    Vicki was engaging and always asked thoughtful questions, probing in key areas. Very comfortable place to go and spend time thinking through topics I wanted talk about. Finding mutually beneficial appointment times wasn't always the easiest (mainly due to my schedule) but Vicki did a great job of communicating options and expectations. Highly recommend as a trustworthy and caring professional.

    What I appreciated about Vicki more than anything I think is that she gave me the tools to work on my own. I hope I will never stop practicing what I learned in our sessions. It doesn't take much at all for a therapist to turn me the wrong way, but Vicki was always connected and present with me. She always had a very special way of making me feel comfortable, never any judgement I could pick up. I have recommended her to personal friends of mine and would recommend her to anyone who is even considering therapy. She's the best.

    Long time issues defeated!

    Vicki made me feel confortable enough to discuss things I have held in my whole life. She allowed me to see myself in a more positive way and gave me some real answers to issues that seemed to not have any. She is engaging and probably the first time I felt that a therapist took the time to dig and try to understand how I felt about myself. I never felt like she gave me text book answers or said what I wanted to hear. She delivered guidance professionally, but in a personable way. The hardest part was ending treatment, because she was such a great person with whom to spend an hour.

    Tailored Approach, Unique to You

    I went to Vicki a year and a half ago as a soggy mess. Somehow, somewhere along the way I had lost myself... in ex-boyfriends, in friends in need, in my family, in what I "should be" doing. I felt I was walking around a ghost of who I really am, just going through the motions but not experiencing or enjoying much of anything. I finally put my foot down and said "I'm not going to feel like this any longer. I want to be happy." Vicki was always very compassionate and honest with me at the same time. She empathized with my pain, and helped me to understand where it really stemmed from. And at the same time, she encouraged me to look beyond it and gave me exercises to force me out of my "everything sucks" way of thinking and to see what was real, what was me. I think my therapy took a much more conventional approach than some other patients - we talked for the most part. But I was also interested in some yoga techniques, so we did breathing and meditation exercises from time to time as well. Regardless of what you are looking for, Vicki will tailor your sessions specific to you. By the time I left, I feel like I had made a friend in Vicki. We may not call each other up and gossip on the phone, but she will always hold a special place in my heart. For helping me to overcome my personal demons, for coming prepared to ever session even when I didn't always want to be there, and for helping me to realize that being "Me" is kind-of spectacular.

    Vicki Smith is a gifted healer, whether you go to her for talk therapy or yoga therapy. If you are dissatisfied with traditional psychoanalysis, I highly recommend yoga therapy...even if you are not experienced in yoga. Vicki helped me understand that psychological pain does not soley reside in our heads, but also our bodies. She gently worked with me through supported yoga postures to access and release stress and pain. She also worked with me on guided meditations. She is an insightful, empathetic, and gifted therapist, whether you are interested in a traditional theraputic approach or a mind/body approach.

    Vicki Smith is a wonderful person who never judged or criticized. Her practice was very calming and I always felt very relaxed when I met with her. A lot of her practice includes asking questions to help you get to the center of your problems and as you answer them you almost feel as though you were able to solve the problem yourself, which is very gratifying. She strongly believes in the use of breathing exercises and natural remedies to your stress and anxieties, which are a much healthier alternative to the typical prescriptions you get from a therapist. I would highly recommend Vicki!

    I had tried out a few therapists in my day and never found one that I felt comfortable with... that is until I found Vicki! A friend recommended her and I am so glad she did. Vicki is so easy to talk to. She really helped me through my issues. I can't even explain how she does it. She listens and then doesn't give you the answers but rather, helps you figure out the answers yourself. I always feel good when I leave her sessions. She is amazing. I am so glad to have met her and am blessed to get her help. I HIGHLY recommend her.

    I am a successful, healthy 50 year old male that realized I had some issues I needed to work through. Specifically, my anger was getting the better of me and it was leading to some poor personal choices. After evaluating numerous therapists online, I decided to schedule an appointment with Vicki Smith. Her style and approach clicked with me right away and I spent nine months working with her. Two things that made a difference for me. One, she listened well (which one would expect from a therapist), but more importantly, she had keen observations related to my history and my feelings. With her help, I was able to begin getting to the heart of my issues and begin resolving them. Two, she had a sense for when our work was done and initiated the conversation about taking a break from therapy to see how I do on my own for a while. I found that interesting since I had heard that therapists can, at times, see clients as an annuity. In conclusion, Vicki was easy to work with, helped me immensely by providing unbiased an objective feedback and sent me on my way with an invitation to return (which I will do if and when I feel the need). If you are looking for someone to talk with, I highly recommend Vicki Smith.

    Vicki is a remarkable therapist, balancing warmth and nurture with challenge to prompt personal growth. She is well qualified to travel along on your healing journey, and is very adaptive to needs and life philosophies. I have started this journey with many therapists, but have only find true progress with Vicki. She is truly a blessing in dark places.

    I saw Vicki for 10 months in 2009. I was going through a transitional time in relationships, work, and family. From the first time I met with Vicki I felt instantly comfortable. She helped me work through my losses and conflicts, giving strategies to help me cope and celebrated the high points with me. She helped me to conceive many self-realizations. She is funny, warm, and non-judgmental. Paying and filing with insurance was very easy. I would highly recommend her to anyone, working with her as a counselor was one of the best things I've ever done for myself.

    Yoga Therapy with Vicki Smith
    KMayee (1 review)
    4/29/2010

    I was undergoing rather tumultuous changes in my life when I met with Vicki for our one-on-one yoga therapy session: a new relationship, a move to England, the selling of all my things, finding a new home for my cat...you get it-- Despite all of this, or rather, in the face of it, Vicki was able to intuitively work through the tensions within my body as well as within my mind and heart. "The body holds onto memories" she explained. And, it was with that understanding that I was able to relax and let her take pain from me. Hands on therapy requires a great deal of trust, but with Vicki, I never so much as flinched when she guided me into poses and talked me through breathing techniques. Her gentle awareness and easy demeanor made the entire experience so easy, so wonderful for me during a very stressful time. I wish I had found her sooner! ~KM
