About Me

My name is Melissa Schmidt and I’ll be here to support you along the way to meet your desired goals. My style is to help create a positive and supportive relationship that you feel can guide you along the way through listening, using a calming heart and soul.
All of us encounter challenges in life that may overwhelm us or cause confusion. During this, I would like to support you with feedback, provide opportunities for you to learn and grow from, and create a relationship that you can count on - even in this technology driven world!
I have provided therapy to children, adolescents, and adults in various settings. I have worked in-patient settings along with my recent setting, being a school social worker with high schoolers. Working alongside students with disabilities have allowed me to see ​the value of appreciating the smaller things in life, every laugh or the things that bring us joy. I use a number of various treatment approaches such as CBT, DBT, and Mindfulness. Through our communication we can decide a treatment plan and how to best support you.
I believe that therapy is a two way street, I can guide you along the way with tools and support but you have to play a primary role with participation. I would like to hear your feedback and concerns if something is not to your liking and we can work together to find a way.
I look forward to working with you through your journey.

Written by S.A. on Jul 21, 2021 after counseling with Melissa for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Since working with Melissa, I've become a stronger and healthier person. I've been able to work through some specific and challenging life experiences, and also become a stronger and better person through day to day life. I would highly recommend Melissa Schmidt as a counselor and supporter, as I would not be where I am today without her!

Melissa is amazing. She’s been there to help with my stress and anxiety as I went through a difficult phase at work and helped as I transitioned into a new position. I would highly recommend her.
