Tina J. Smith,BSW, MSW, RSW
Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist
Tina Smith of Tina J. Smith & Associates Counselling & Psychotherapy and Tina J. Smith Ministries is a Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist with a Bachelor and Masters Degree. She has a passion to bring knowledge to the Body of Christ that is both biblically rooted and science-backed. Tina believes that this knowledge will help support the church develop shame-free practices that lead people to healing in Christ Jesus. Currently, Tina is completing part-time studies towards a Bachelor of Divinity.
She is determined to bring teaching that brings truth over satan's deception that mental illness is incurable and can only be managed. She has a deep desire for the Body of Christ to learn that we are designed in the image of God with the ability to rewire our brain through resolving past wounds and renewing our mind.
Throughout years of Tina's intensive support to the Body of Christ, God began to unveil a deep revelation of the interwoven nature of a Christian's suffering within his or her spirit, soul and body.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 identifies that our triune nature (spirit, soul and body) must be sanctified entirely, be preserved and without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
She has observed through the integration of biblical and science-backed treatment and teaching that deeper knowledge and complete freedom in Christ Jesus occurs when we seek knowledge and healing in all three areas (spirit, soul, and body). She is encouraging and challenging the Body of Christ to walk deeply into greater Biblical truth of God's grace and mercy through His design to heal.
Tina has been practicing as a mental health practitioner for over 20 years working within the Body of Christ and secular community. Tina's treatment approach is to partner with people to help him or her heal deep rooted negative and traumatic core wounds of one's past that cause blindspots, suffering and mental illness in present day. She has helped lead, support and provide treatment for Christians whom found deep healing within their soul, which led them to walking the continued journey with the HOLY SPIRIT whom is the GREATEST counsellor and teacher.
Tina has journeyed through personal suffering from a history of abuse from her first marriage, suicide attempt, and medical trauma from her son's cancer diagnosis. Today, she walks with a deep revelation of healing and the revelatory knowledge of God's desire to set people free.
Tina is married to her amazing husband of almost 20 years. They have been blessed with three children (son and two daughters), one large Newfoundland (Atticus), a small Havanese (Cuddles), and a Ragdoll cat (Cutie).
