About Bobby Smith

Raised in the Midwest, I moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2008 to finish undergraduate work in Outdoor Education and Ecology. While among the coastal rain-forests and mountains of the Cascades, I learned from others what it took to thrive in the wilderness. Wild places taught me about healing and self-efficacy, and helped me discover passion and purpose that I was before unaware. I continued to share this passion for wilderness with a 12-Step based climbing club. I taught for two years on their glacier-climbing course, and lead technical graduation climbs on Cascade volcanoes. During these experiences, I was impassioned with the courage, vitality, grace, and principled lives that people in recovery possess despite facing some of the hardest challenges human beings can face. I witnessed people working miracles in their lives.

After moving to UT in 2011, I worked for multiple wilderness therapy companies and guided on two continents. I followed this path with a goal of becoming a professional mountain guide. Continually being a part of clients change process reinforces my passion and commitment to helping others develop meaningful lives, relationships, and experiences. My work as a field guide, mentor, and recovery coach for adolescents and young adults inspired me to seek a graduate degree so that I could more effectively help clients realize their potential and authenticity. Depending on a client’s challenges, my clinical approach typically involves an interpersonal process combining aspects of emotional and body awareness, values clarification, and mindfulness. My goal, as a therapist is to understand my clients struggles and help them address the root of their behavior; whether its anxiety, depression, family issues, or developing identity. Helping clients find and live the life they desire in their heart is the ultimate goal.
