Sybil R Smith, M.A., LPC/MHSP, MT-BC, FAMI
Individual and Couples Therapist
Music and expressive arts are the languages of the soul. Finding ways to help people heal from trauma and early developmental wounds with the languages of sound, sight, and movement is at the forefront of Sybil’s psychotherapeutic work. She is board certified in music therapy, with specialized training in the depth psychology model of the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music. In this model, she teaches with the Integrative Transformations group. With further training in somatic attachment, MARI, therapeutic art, mindfulness, and trauma-focused modalities, she blends the worlds of psychotherapy with expressive arts to create healing environments for clients. At ETSU, where she graduated with a M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy, systems theory and the interconnectedness of humanity is at the root of both her client and supervisory work. As a supervisor for professional counselors and GIM students, developmental and creative collaborative work encourages the learning and development of each student to progress with individuation and self awareness.
