My specialties and areas of interest are: depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, communication, stress management and relationship conflicts.
Greetings from Frank Smith, MFT. Let me offer a truism: whether positive or negative, most behavior is learned. Behavior often results in patterns. Those patterns can be positive and life affirming. But they can also be maladaptive and impact our self-esteem, happiness and relationships. You may be wondering...why can't I break these destructive patterns? I can help you unravel where they came from. Such awareness is the first step toward better emotional health. Let me be your psychological navigator to help you let go of the past and have a better and more fulfilling life.

There is no question that life has been coming at us all hard lately. Forcing us to change in ways we could have never predicted. Transition is never easy, but it is even more complicated when you factor in trauma, depression, fear or any of the other possible roadblocks that are common in life. It is normal to respond to “new” with uncertainty, sadness, or even anger. These changes, and the reactions to them, can cause issues within a relationship (including parenting), sleepless nights, acting out, indecision and prolonged sadness.

All of which have struggled with issues ranging from anxiety, depression, trauma, family conflict, self esteem, self harm, ect.
I understand that finding a therapist can be extremely anxiety provoking and difficult. This is why I hope to provide my clients with a non-judgmental and supportive environment that facilitates their ability to address presenting issues or concerns. As a psychodynamic therapist, my main focus is the relationship and connection between the therapist and client. I believe that it is important to feel safe and secure when processing deep rooted, painful issues.

I have dealt with a wide range of concerns including child abuse, family discord, identity crisis, suicidal ideation, trauma and chronic illnesses such as Bipolar, Depression, PTSD, Anxiety, Schizophrenia, and other Psychotic Disorders.
At time, life provides us with the opportunities that enable us to grow and accomplish. However, at times it also presents itself in the form of a challenge. These life events can take a toll on our mental health and leave us feeling hopeless, unmotivated, lost, and stuck. I am passionate and confident in my ability to make a difference in the life of my clients. Having been through many touch patches myself, I understand well the importance of regaining one's own sense of purpose, strength, and dignity. I have experiences working with both children and adults using individual and family therapy modalities.

My goal is to provide a laid back, welcoming, sex positive and judgement-free environment where you can feel comfortable to explore your thoughts, hopes, and concerns. I believe that therapy works best when the client/therapist relationship is built on a solid foundation of trust and is on an equal footing. I want you to feel heard, empowered and emboldened to face all of life's challenges. My favorite part about therapy is being able to help my clients identify their strengths and passions in life so that they can accomplish any goal.

You finally feel like you have the main pieces of your life together. The career is going well, and you feel like you are making strides. You have a home that you feel good about and enough money to travel and see the world. But, who to see the world with? You are continually in and out of relationships and you aren't sure if you will ever find "the one". You're sick of the dating scene because it seems that you always end up with the wrong person. And even when you find who you think is "the one", red flags cause you to question what to do. Loneliness may lead to depression and anxiety. And all of this leads to despair.

Many of my clients are struggling with difficult relationships where they need to learn new methods of communicating, identify reoccurring and destructive patterns, or make decisions to either more fully commit to or let go of their partners. I focus on therapy to generate coping skills to deal with the changes that challenge us through our lifespan, such as separation, divorce, infertility, birth, family conflict, death or loss of a loved one, retirement, empty nest, and aging issues.

I see many people who tried regular talk therapy, but their symptoms didn't shift. I also see folks who are overwhelmed--by traumatic events, or simply when modern life, feelings or relationships are "too much". If you've been in talk therapy but are still feeling stuck, it may be because the stress is still in your body. This can show up as PTSD, anxiety, depression, low motivation, panic attacks, substance abuse, eating disorders, etc.My clients learn what their bodies are trying to tell them and what needs to happen to stop symptoms & support healthy well-being. I have a knack for working with unusual or "out of the box" folks.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Long Beach. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
