I am a Mental Health Counselor with many years of experience. Life is difficult and talking helps. I have worked with thousands of individuals and families across the Country and I know that happiness (or peace of mind) is a reasonable goal for everyone, no matter what the circumstance. I have cut my teeth in this field. I have worked with homeless people, and the heirs to multibillion-dollar fortunes as well. I have worked with all manner of disabled people, those with severe and persistent mental illness, and those who would colloquially be considered "worried-well." I am also a Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor. I truly love helping people break apart their bad habits and learn to experience the joys of a healthy lifestyle.
As your therapist, I will help you learn to pinpoint the source of your distress, and show you powerful techniques to get rid of the problem. Therapy is a collaborative process. We will work together and problem-solve all the different ways to get you living your best life as quickly as possible.

He is a great therapist, and I am grateful that he helps me!
Working with Robert has been amazing. I had 3 other therapists before him. The primary difference between them and Robert is that he doesn’t just listen to me ramble on for 30 minutes straight. He will interrupt when he needs to and asks me challenging questions to rethink what I just said. Working with him has been such a blessing! Highly recommended!
I am very fortunate to have Robert through Betterhelp. He is a good listener and he helps me process issues and break them down to plan on making constructive change. I highly recommend him!
He’s been so helpful & responsive so far! I feel like I can talk to him in a way that feels natural & he responds so well. He lets me talk openly in a way that makes me comfortable & is effective, is good at structuring the session, replies quickly, is willing to work with my schedule, & is focused on my desire to learn CBT tools. Highly recommend!
I’ve just completed my first session with Robert Schmidt and I was very impressed with him. He really is a good listener and I also find him very compassionate. I look forward to speaking with him again. I truly believe that he will be able help guide me to a better place in my life.
Robert is extremely knowledgeable, he was able.to guide me to understand why i was feeling the way i was. I highly recommend him. With only one call with him, immediately he was able to pinpoint the direction i needed. Sometimes you just need the extra push to see the bigger picture. Thanks again Robert.
I’m really lucky to have been matched with Robert. He’s extremely compassionate and understanding. He also provides me with the tools necessary to see my bigger picture and to not be so hard on myself. When I first began sessions with him I was deeply suicidal and had been for years. With Roberts help, I was able to love myself again and truly see the value of my life and the impact I have on others. I had a lot of feelings of guilt for various decisions made prior in life but, he helped me recognize that everyone makes mistakes and it’s not about the mistake but about the actions you take to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Those uncomfortable topics that I thought would be difficult discussing were easy with him because of his non judgmental approach and ability to listen intently. From relationships, to life regrets, to personal loneliness; he was open to discuss any and all topics openly. I truly value our meetings and I wish him the best in his personal life as, he’s helped me want to live again. Thank you Robert.
I really feel like I have lucked out with having Robert as my counselor. We have really clicked. He is so incredibly knowledgeable while also being extremely helpful. I’ve only had two sessions with him & have been pretty blown away by how much he’s already helped me. I can’t thank him & BetterHelp enough. Seriously, thank you.
All I can say is this man knows his stuff! He is also a great listener! He knows the right questions to ask to get you to see what the concern is. He responses in a timely manner. He makes you feel like he’s really there for you. I’m grateful for Robert!
