About Joel Schmidt
Are you feeling stuck or worried? Having a hard time adjusting to this "new normal"? Are you anxious, stressed, or depressed? Feeling frozen and unable to move forward until things go back to normal? Perhaps isolated and disconnected? If so, I can help. Reach out for a free 15 minute secure video consultation. We can briefly get to know one another, discuss reasons for starting counseling, and see if we might be a good fit for working with one another. It's as easy as clicking on a link I provide to securely connect us. All you need is a phone or computer with audio/video capabilities.
I work with adult professionals and students who are generally doing "okay" but struggling in certain areas in life, to include: career dissatisfaction, difficulty sticking to goals, anxiety, specific phobias, worries about the future, relationship difficulties, grief/loss, stress, self-doubt, social difficulties, rumination on the past, and a broad range of other issues.
My approach to working with people is collaborative, evidence-based, secular, and solution-focused. This means we will work together to identify problems and develop an action plan for moving forward and getting unstuck. You'll have the opportunity to be fully heard in a private, unbiased, and nonjudgmental setting. I'll help you develop a healthier relationship with your thoughts, while gaining new insights that will help you move forward with a sense of purpose - even while the earth seems to be standing still.
