Therapy made for you

Feel overwhelmed by the idea of therapy? Unsure if it’s right for you? Not sure where to begin?

I’m here to help you reimagine your life.

Re-Imagine Therapy offers a holistic and personalized approach that honors your unique needs. I have expertise treating a range of issues, including anxiety, disordered eating, trauma, and depression. I use a variety of modalities, such as Cognitive Behavioral and Dialectical Behavioral Therapies, as well as EMDR (trauma based therapy), to help you reach your truest potential and personal goals.

Take a chance on yourself. You are worth it.

I’m Kate Smiley,

a licensed clinical social worker with a passion for guiding individuals towards healing and transformation. I specialize in helping adult men and women work through their challenges, uncover underlying issues, develop coping strategies, and foster personal growth.

With over 14 years of experience, I bring a depth of lived and clinical experience to each session… along with a healthy dose of humor, enthusiasm, and compassion. I’m here to create a supportive space where you can be vulnerable and honest.

Raised in Los Angeles, I grew up in the depths of the entertainment industry and spent the early days of my career as an actress. After witnessing first hand the impact of trauma on family members and friends, I acted on a lifelong calling towards helping others and became a therapist. I received my MSW from University of Southern California School of Social Work, where I was recognized with the top clinical award in my class. I have been asked to be a guest lecturer on more than one occasion.

At Re-Imagine Therapy, consider me a companion in your journey towards self-discovery. My goal is to be a compassionate and empathetic partner in this process. Given my lived experiences dealing with loss, marriage, work, and raising children, I understand what you’re going through — whether you’re just starting to feel like an adult, or you’re entering into your later life phases.

I’m passionate about helping my clients find a new path forward and creating sustainable support systems. There is no greater joy for me than getting to accompany individuals in their pursuit of healing.

Let’s give you the power to make your own decisions, and take back the reins of your life.

How I can help you

Do you feel exhausted, overworked, and burned out? Through a tailored plan, you can gain insights into your triggers and learn strategies for calming, coping, and relaxing. You can develop skills to navigate anxious thoughts and situations, leading to a greater sense of calm and control in your daily life.

Is depression interfering with your routine, relationships, or work habits? Do you miss the joy you used to experience in life? It is never too late to address your depression. Therapy can help you gain coping skills for long-term, sustained happiness.

Do you use food as a way to cope with stress, anxiety, or other emotions? Have your eating habits or concerns about food affected your social life or daily activities? Therapy can help you identify and change distorted thinking patterns and behaviors related to food and body image.
