About Me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in Idaho with over 13 years of experience working as a counselor and case manager. I have worked with clients with mental health and addiction issues in a variety of setting in private and institutional settings. I have focused on treating anxiety, depression, trauma issues, and those in crisis. I have also worked with people who are experiencing addiction issues, sexual abusers, and suicidal clients.

My counseling style is open and motivational. I believe in treating clients with honesty, compassion and friendliness, while maintaining focus on solutions. My approach combines narrative therapy with motivational interviewing and solution-focused treatment. I work with clients to identify personal goals and use realistic tools that are simple, effective, and research-based.

I believe that people discover their inner strengths when they are given the right opportunity. If you or someone you know is ready to work on taking the steps to self-improvement or managing a difficult time, I am here to assist in any way I can.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Rob Schmidt. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Written by M.I. on Oct 06, 2021 after therapy with Rob for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

After my initial meeting with Rob, I found that he is a great person to speak your mind to. He is open and honest. He is a great listener and comes up with very good advice. I will be continuing my sessions with him.
