Rebecca Smith is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate (LCMHCA). She received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Meredith College and her Master of Science in Counselor Education from East Carolina University. Before coming to Horizon, Rebecca worked as a school counselor in Wake County where she supported students with social, emotional, or behavioral challenges to succeed in the educational setting. Rebecca enjoys working with children, adolescents, young adults, and their families. Rebecca’s counseling style is strengths-based, person-centered, and solution-focused. She aims to meet clients where they are, understanding that there is no “one size fits all” approach. She enjoys using play and expressive art therapy techniques in sessions. Rebecca recognizes the importance of the family system and may incorporate family members into a client’s treatment.

Rebecca has provided counseling services to children, adolescents, and adults with anxiety, depression, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD; “ADD”), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). She has also helped individuals navigate peer and family conflict, low self-esteem, trauma, grief, family changes and divorce, bullying, emotional regulation, and identity issues.

In her free time, Rebecca enjoys spending time with her family, and cuddling with her dog and cat. She loves traveling, yoga, baking, movies, and learning new things.
