Denver psychologist Dr. Shawn SmithI’m Dr. Shawn Smith, a licensed psychologist in Denver, Colorado. I offer solution-focused therapy, always with empathy and your particular situation in mind. I don’t use cookie-cutter approaches. Treatment is always tailored to your goals. My specialties include:

Anxiety Treatment

I rely on solution-focused, empirically-validated treatment for generalized anxiety disorder, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), trauma-related anxiety, and other forms of anxiety. I hate it when anxiety limits people’s lives, and I’ll stay by your side while we tackle it.

Relationship Repair

I offer solution-focused couples therapy to eliminate hurtful, destructive patterns and create a loving and supportive relationship. I rely on empirically-validated treatments to help couples develop real tools and strategies for change.

Ongoing Therapy

While my services can be short-term, some people prefer longer-term, ongoing work. My empirically-supported services can help, whether you need someone in your corner to help you manage ongoing, complex problems, or you’re looking for a coach to help you replace old patterns and meet your full potential.

If you would like to get a jump on the paperwork (there isn’t much), you can download my intake forms, consent for couple therapy if applicable, and my HIPAA statement (this one is just informational). I look forward to meeting you!
