Welcome! I'm Ashley Smith, Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Entrepreneur, and Happiness Quester.
As a clinical psychologist, I have spent more than a decade specializing in the treatment of anxiety and related disorders using an evidence-based treatment called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
I've dedicated my career to helping people understand how their brains work and teaching them effective strategies for reducing anxiety and depression, and, ultimately leading meaningful and happy lives.
A nice side effect of my day job is that I have stellar coping skills, which I use on a daily basis! I have a rare degenerative retinal disease that makes me legally, and increasingly, blind. Despite vision loss, I have actively pursued happiness by carving out a life full of strong connections, high ambitions, and enriching experiences.
I am passionate about sharing the principles and practices of CBT, applied neuroscience, and positive psychology beyond the walls of my office. While stress and heartache are unavoidable parts of life, I wholeheartedly believe that we always have some choice and some control over things that can maximize our happiness...MINDSET MATTERS!
Hi! I'm April Seifert, Social cognitive Psychologist, Entrepreneur, and Life Design Strategist!
Growing up, my life was not easy. I lost my dad to cancer when I was very young. Shortly after that, I became temporarily blind and paralyzed, which ultimately landed me the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. Because of these two life events, I became intimately aware of how short life is and how quickly it can all be taken away.
I vowed to take responsibility for creating my own joy, contentment, excitement, and fulfillment in my life. I began experimenting with tools from the fields that I knew so well: Psychology and Design Thinking. From there, my passion for Life Design was born! I began creating my own experience and living like my life depended on it.
I'm thrilled to be part of Peak Mind, because I know first-hand how powerful the fields of Psychology and Design Thinking can be in helping people make the most of their one life. You see, everyone has been given the same gift of one life. Few people, however, actively participate in it.
I want you to be one of the few who creates their own experience. Become psychologically strong enough to go after what you really want. Be one of the few who really lives. Are you ready?
