"This process of the good life is not, I am convinced, a life for the fainthearted. It involves the stretching and growing of becoming more and more of one's potentialities. It involves the courage to be."
  -Carl Rogers

Larissa Godfrey-Smith, LPC


I am a licensed professional counselor located in Washington, D.C.  I specialize in queer topics, gender, and mood disorders, and I am a WPATH member.  The clients I enjoy working with the most are teens, adults, and families with identities that are often seen as outside of the "typical": gender-expansive, queer, blended families, and formerly religious.  They are seeking a safe space to process challenges, practice acceptance, gain strength, and secure support, without having to explain their identity, unique family dynamic, or risk being criticized because of it.
