Kaytlin Smith, Psy.D.

My name is Dr. Kaytlin (she/her/hers) and I am a licensed Oregon Clinical Psychologist. I received my doctorate from George Fox University (Psy.D.) in Newberg, Oregon and completed my         pre-doctoral internship in Connecticut working with survivors of traumatic events. I work with individuals between the ages of 10-25 who are struggling with anxious thoughts, perfectionism, obsessions, compulsions, specific phobias, self-esteem, and body acceptance. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) in my work with patients, but also draw from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). My hope is to honor my patients as holistic humans with their own diverse experiences and identities. This includes respecting those of different religious or spiritual backgrounds, values, cultural, and racial heritage, gender or sexual identity, disability or socioeconomic status. I do support body positivity/neutrality, food without morality, and the Health at Every Size movement. I believe that therapy should be a safe space where you can laugh as often as you cry and where your strengths are just as important as your growth areas.

You should probably know that I do think pineapple belongs on pizza and that cats are superior to dogs. As a mental health provider, I do love cardigans, but don’t have the same affection for tea. You can find me thrift shopping, singing poorly to Broadway soundtracks, at a spin class, or  binge-watching British baking shows when I am not at work. Whether or not I am the best fit for you, I wish you all the best on your mental health journey.
