Dr. Samone M. Smith-Brown 

Your Symmetrical Self



I grew up in Linden, New Jersey. Growing up wasn’t easy. Many of the situations, hardships and struggles others were fortunate enough not to experience became a part of my daily existence.  However, even though having to endure such adversities, I always found myself wanting to help others feel better, to believe in themselves, to understand that each new day given is a new chance to change their lives, to never let anything stop them.  Circumstances arise but they don’t have to define who you are and who you ultimately become. The desire to help others became my driving force and pushed me through sickness, pregnancy, personal loss, low self-esteem and self-doubt to obtain my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Rutgers University in 1999. During my time at Rutgers, I was a member of Psi Chi and the National Honor Society in Psychology.  In 2004 I received my Masters in Clinical Psychology from Capella University and went on to complete a PhD in Psychology in 2015.  
As my desire to help others continued to go unquenched, I decided I needed to further my scope in order to fully service all with whom I would come in contact. As a result, in 2015 I became a certified Life Coach and thus the foundations of Your Symmetrical Self were born.  Helping my clients to find the balance, harmony and beauty in their lives so they can become the EMPOWERED, reborn individual they’ve envisioned; their Symmetrical Selves.
This isn’t just a career but a passion, a desire to offer people something that I never had - a hands-on, motivational, transformational life coach and lifestyle changer who will be your therapist, cheerleader and the friend that many need but can’t seem to find.
