Dr. Smith, most recently with AllHealth Network, the community mental health center serving Arapahoe and Douglas Counties on the front range, brings nearly 20 years of experience in areas including trauma, resiliency, crisis intervention, psychological assessment and assertive community treatment. She holds a PsyD. Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, IL and is trained in numerous early childhood and parent-child interaction & play therapies.
“I am beyond excited to live and work in Summit County” says Dr. Smith, “and I am looking forward to collaborating with our community partners to enhance mental health services and support our community as a whole.”

This marks an increase of 12% over the previous year, and 34% over just 2 years ago.
