Destinee Smith ’20

LGPC, Entreprenuer - Private Practice

Since graduating from Trinity Washington University in 2020, Destinee has attained dual licensure as an LGPC in Washington, DC and Maryland.

She works for a private practice in Washington where she has a caseload of clients and supervises the Case Managers. She is responsible for the quality assurance program at the private practice and also supervises the Quality Assurance Team.

In addition to serving in a clinical setting, Destinee launched a counselor test preparation business in 2021 called Study Stoop LLC. Study Stoop combines cognitive science with counselor education to increase confidence and empower counselors to be change agents beyond standardized exams which often serve as a barrier for counselors of color to pursue licensure. She is studying for her Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision with an emphasis in Leadership at the University of the Cumberlands and was awarded a Graduate Assistantship under the Dean of the department, Dr. Matthew Lyons.
