More about me

Licensing: MSW, LCSW
Years in Practice: 47

I am a clinically trained social worker with more than 40 years of experience. My treatment specialties include depression, anxiety, and grief counseling. I assist with the resolution of work-related concerns. I am also a trained life coach, helping people make decisions related to changes they would like to have in their lives while achieving work/life balance. I also provide behavior modification, problem-solving, and motivation therapy. I work with couples of all kinds, knowing that being a couple or family cannot be defined only in the traditional sense. I take a broad view in this area.

The basis for my efforts is insight therapy. I encourage those who work with me to consider how their decisions and actions enhance or impair the attainment of their goals. This type of understanding is critical for making meaningful life changes.

My work is for and about you! We will go as far and as fast as you are able. Although I offer clarity in recognizing the issues that concern you, I will never take you where you do not want to go. Our work will be free of judgment, allowing you to speak and respond openly. I will always respect you and value what you share with me.

You have made the right decision by embarking on a therapeutic relationship. I hope you choose me to help guide you on that journey.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Delores is AMAZING! I’ve already recommended her to multiple people. She’s kind, understanding and comforting.

I would recommend Ms. Delores especially to minority women. She is objective and understands the nuances to the life minority women face.

Delores has made a huge impact on me in a short period of time and has already helped open my eyes to things that I either did not realize or things I was not ready to face. Best part is she listens and has provided me complete validation of my feelings.

Delores is wonderful to talk to and always helps me see things more clearly. And for those times that I just need a sounding board, she has been great with that as well. In the short time that I've been working with her, she has made a tremendous difference in my life.

She is a great listener. She asked all the right questions and helped me pinpoint areas to focus and work on. She's very wonderful.

When I first began seeing Delores, I was all over the place & distraught by a build up of a multiple issues. She listened closely, validated my feelings, began to help me untangle my issues & then smartly started addressing the most immediate concerns. She encourages going at a comfortable pace, whatever that may be for me. She is a good listener—diligent, considerate, empathetic, intuitive & nonjudgmental. I have to say I was wary of an online counseling service, but I couldn’t be more blessed to have been assigned to her.

Delores is such a great listener. She def tries her best to let me figure out or answer my own questions. Never comes off judgements. She’s very respectful & I enjoy my sessions with her so much!!

She is awesome, extremely nice and professional! Thank you

R.A.·Mar 02, 2021


It’s a good experience. I like to say things out loud and get feedback. She’s great at listening and helping you see the little things, that really are a big deal

Delores is amazing. I have been in counseling before but have never felt as positive about the process before. Not only does Delores listen, she asks the questions that require thought and reflection. Delores is extremely gifted.

R.E.·Jan 11, 2021


Delores is consistent and insightful. She asks open ended questions that really make me think and I feel seen/heard and safe to open up. She responds consistently which tells me she values my time as well as her own. She is both professional and relatable, she gives me straight talk when I need it and offers gentle empathy in moment I share pain. While I am the one who chose to seek help and change my behaviors, it’s a relief and blessing to know someone is listening, offering guidance, being a sounding board for me to collect my thoughts and see my actions.

Delores is completely nonjudgemental and really helps you think through your immediate feelings and perspectives. I'm so grateful to work with her and am comfortable either letting her structure our sessions, or structuring our sessions on my own -- she's content to do either.

M.A.·Dec 09, 2020


Ms Delores, is so caring, she listens, gives feedback, resolutions and homework, the work we are doing is changing my life and giving the tools I need to be successful!

S.H.·Nov 04, 2020


Seems like a very experienced woman that would take all the knowledge and time she's got to help those who need it. She's supportive and you can talk with her knowing that whenever or wherever you do it, you can think of it as a safe place, where judgement's out of the table.

A.C.·Oct 01, 2020


She's a great listener. Very prompt for appointment times and in response to messages. I feel very comfortable with her.

H.E.·Sep 08, 2020


I think my counselor was very supportive. The day I spoke with her I had high anxiety. I think she understood why I was so anxious and had compassion towards what I was going through. And I’ve been very impressed that Dolores has reached out and checked on me a few times. If I was isolating by her reaching out would engage me. I think that is very kind of her. I also feel that it makes me feel cared about. I think she has qualities that makes her rare because many people wouldn’t devote the time in connecting with their clients.

she is amazing

A.L.·Aug 13, 2020


She's great, I feel comfortable with her. We're just at the beginning but I have high hopes already. Thank you Dr. Smith.

A.S.·Jul 28, 2020


Delores is a good listener! Her years of experience show through her well placed, insightful questions. She always leaves me with something to grow on.

D.E.·Jul 27, 2020
