Who am I?

I am Amanda L. Smith, LCSW—a licensed social worker and DBT therapist in Waco, Texas.

I am the author of The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Wellness Planner: 365 Days of Healthy Living for Your Body, Mind, and Spirit. You can read more about my work over at Hope for BPD.

Why do I love DBT? It helped change my life for the better and I've seen the skills help so many more.

I'd love to hear from you. Email me anytime at
