Dr. Lawrence W. Smith's bio

Lawrence W. Smith, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist in Seattle, Washington.  He provides evaluations, therapy, and coaching for adults and executives. He specializes in anxiety and depression, and assists with performance and goal attainment.  In his work with couples he relies heavily on the research of  John Gottman, Ph.D.  As a cognitive-behavioral therapist, he assists with changing thinking and behavior to improve well-being. He also employs the latest scientific research in positive psychology and helps identify and maximize one's personal strengths. After discussing the reason for the initial appointment, a thorough assessment (and possible testing) provides additional context and reveals nuances that are unique to each person. Therapy follows an individualized treatment plan and addresses the original concerns, as well as those that might be raised through further discussion. His office is located in a downtown high-rise to ensure maximum confidentiality, convenience, and comfort.
