More about me

Licensing: Ph.D., LPC
Years in Practice: 40

Greetings! I am Dr. Schneider. I am a licensed professional counselor holding licenses in both Virginia and Wisconsin. My past formal education includes earning a B.S. degree, majoring in Psychology and Sociology, an M.S. degree, majoring in Rehabilitation Counseling, and a Ph.D., majoring in Educational Psychology. My professional experience spans more than 40 years, having worked with children, teens, adults, families, couples, and persons from diverse cultural backgrounds, in outpatient clinic settings, a primary health care setting, and intensive in-home community-based settings. My primary counseling approaches include being person-centered, trauma-informed/focused and gender sensitive; using cognitive-behavioral, brief solution-focused, and self-discovery techniques. Also, I believe the mind, body and spirit are inter-connected. Your thoughts, feelings, challenges and goals will be at the center of whatever work we do together. It is how you view the world that matters. It is your journey toward healing and wholeness we will focus on. I highly value and believe each person is unique, and has inherent dignity and worth. I offer a non-judgmental, empathic, and ethical professional presence to assist you to discover your questions, your answers, and, hopefully, discover more clearly “who you are.” Counseling and therapy are not always easy, but exploring your life’s meaning and purpose while working during the healing process is usually well worth the effort. I always encourage and welcome questions. And, one of my favorite lines has always been, “A little humor always helps,” so you can count on that. I look forward to our professional time together. Please let me know if you have any questions.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Dr. Schneider is a caring and kind soul. He is insightful and incredibly helpful in both the obviously big ways as well as in the seemingly small ways that are actually immensely important. I always feel safe and heard and valid.
