Emily Smith, LISW

Licensed Mental Health Therapist and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction™ Instructor

I offer compassionate, holistic mental health and wellness care to adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, perfectionism, relationship issues,  and chronic pain. I use Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Compassion-Focused Therapy in my practice. I lead mindfulness, self-compassion, and emotional eating therapy groups.  I also teach Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction™ (MBSR) classes and offer workshops and retreats on mindful living.

I received my undergraduate degree at Iowa State University and my master’s degree in social work at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. I completed my MBSR™ teacher qualifications at University of California San Diego Medical School’s Center for Mindfulness and participated in 65 hours of additional MBSR™ training with Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D.

I accept most Wellmark and out of state Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance plans.  My private pay rate is $160 per appointment.

If you’d like to schedule a therapy session, or have questions about any of the services I offer, please  request an appointment online  or call my direct line at 515-344-3566.  I’ll be back to you within 1-2 business days.

I look forward to meeting you at Prairie Wellness.
