Smith Broadwell (they/them), MDiv, MSW, LCSW-C, is a psychotherapist in Annapolis, MD, and owner of Tuning In Wellness, a therapy practice committed to affirming mental health services for children, adolescents, and adults. They studied studio art and psychology at Washington College in Chestertown, MD. Then they completed Masters degrees in Divinity and Social Work at Boston University, specializing in Religion and Conflict Transformation and Social Work with Groups.
With a broad background in traumatic stress, expressive arts, and theology, Smith is drawn to what we learn and unlearn about ourselves in life’s roughest moments and the sense we make out of it all. They practice a holistic, intersectional, person-centered approach while clients explore their struggles, hopes, identities, and beyond. Smith says working with LGBTQIA+ folks and their important people, neurodivergence, and groups pushing back against systems that have told them who, how, what, and why they should be anything other than who they are is one of the adventures that has most deeply shaped how they show up in the world.
They are raising two gorgeous children with a gorgeous partner, they are never not listening to Brandi Carlile or Jake Wesley Rogers, and whatever crafty/artsy hobby they are working on at any given time becomes their whole personality.
