Empathic therapeutic services for individuals, couples and families.

Erica Smith Jimenez, LMFT
Teletherapy based in Truckee, CA

Hi! My name is Erica Smith Jimenez and I am a licensed marriage and family therapist. I am currently accepting new clients in my teletherapy practice in Truckee, CA. I work with individuals of all ages, couples, and families specializing in support for teens and parents.

I enjoy working with clients with a focus on assisting them in managing emotions, developing positive coping strategies, deepening relationships with others and navigating conflicts in their lives while fostering improved self-esteem.

I offer a safe space to dig into issues that are causing stagnation, sadness, frustration, pain, loneliness, and/or fear and focus on helping to foster more positive emotions with a non-judgmental and strength-based perspective. My style is direct, nurturing and down to earth. I bring an engaged and authentic presence to each session. I have seen, throughout my experience, how much positive change can occur when the optimal support is available, and I will routinely offer that to all my clients. It is with empathy, compassion, humility, experience, training and skill that I offer my clients a therapeutic relationship and tools for working through their struggles. Each person is unique with their own specific needs and I tailor my approach dependent upon those needs.

My goal is to provide my clients with tools needed so they can live a happier and healthier life!
