Amasa Smith, LICSw
Clinical Social Worker
Boston, Massachusetts 02210
I offer individual and group therapy to young adults/professionals, as well as college undergraduate and graduate students. I reserve space in my clinical practice for clients who have OCD and OCD Related Disorders. My clinical approach to therapy is grounded in ERP, CBT, and ACT. I am passionate about working with individuals who have OCD and OCD Related Disorders. OCD and avoidance can overwhelm and disrupt many of the most important aspects in life. However, I have seen the successes that engagement in ERP can have to produce a more engaged and meaningful life.
I received my formal clinical education and training at Boston College where I earned my MSW with a concentration in Clinical Mental Health. I worked at McLean Hospital for 2.5 years as an inpatient clinical social worker with a multitude of clients, including many of whom had OCD and OCD Related Disorders. I have furthered my training and education in CBT and ACT through professional development opportunities with the online Beck Institute.
My formal graduate education at Boston College was built around a fundamental goal of teaching and producing culturally competent clinicians. I’ve been fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with clients across the LGBTQ+ spectrum, as well as from diverse racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. I strive to create an inclusive, respectful, and safe space for all of my clients.
