About Me


I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with 15 years of experience in mental health, serving people with a wide variety of needs and backgrounds.

I believe you have a right to be heard and be yourself. To me, that means being able to talk without fearing stigma, judgment, or a secondary agenda. Therefore, you can rest assured I give you a space where you’ll be welcome as you. Everyone has different needs, and my style is to work together to find the best approach for you. We’ll look at what you want, what works for you, and the best way to reach your goals. I’m always open, and if you wonder what we’re doing, I’m happy to let you know. I never have a hidden agenda.

I enjoy working with members of alternative beliefs and non-believers. I happily work with individuals from any faith or spiritual perspective; however, if you specifically need Christian Counseling, I recommend reaching out to one of BetterHelp’s Christian Counseling specialists.

My approach is to use a combination of Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Trauma-Informed Care. I have a Master’s in Counseling Psychology, an LPC license in Missouri, I’m a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), and I hold a certificate in Disaster Mental Health.

In considering help, you’ve made a big step towards a better life, and it took strength and courage to make it here. It would be an honor to take the next steps together.

Robert is extremely kind and patient. He has good insight and is very personable. I have only had one session with him but I am looking forward to continuing therapy with him.

I had been nervous to get into therapy my whole life. A big part of that equation was fear that I wouldn’t find a therapist who cared, or understood how to help me. Robert Schneider has already fulfilled every hope that I had in finding a great therapist and I plan to continue working with him for quite a while. Thanks Robert!
