I'm super excited that you're here!

🌷 Because Your Love Story Matters. 💖

Dr. Debi Smith, PsyD

Writer. Educator. Encourager.

JUST SO YOU KNOW, I love what I do.

That's why I'm here to help! As a mother of three sons, I developed intense interest in and a unique expertise in the Psychology of Men. I worked with men, women, couples, and families in Orange, Los Angeles, and Ventura counties in California for 25 years before closing my Clinical Psychology Practice in August 2021.

Throughout my career in California, I also helped launch numerous Marriage Programs at local churches, training pastors, marriage mentor couples, and mental health professionals who were looking for help learning to work more effectively with couples.

Now living in Central Texas, I am dedicated to teaching YOU what I've learned and taught about life and love.

EDUCATION & TEACHING EXPERIENCE (if you’re interested) … I earned my Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology at MidAmerica Nazarene University, and my Master of Arts (MA) and Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degrees at Biola University. I also taught at both universities plus Azusa Pacific University (2002-2010).
