#NormalizeHelp

Mental Health has become a more popular topic in recent years.  We may owe some of this to the media, entertainers who are opening up about their mental health, and growing numbers of professionals of color in the field.  


Smedley Psychological Services believes in the importance of asking for help.  It is sometimes the very antithesis of our culture, however, none of us has successfully survived this life without needing help.  


Dr. Smedley is currently providing therapeutic services in collaboration with ReNew Psychological Services in Washington DC.  Call/email the information listed in the link below to schedule a consultation!
