Welcome to my profile page. Whatever you are facing, you have exhibited bravery by taking this step. Try out some counselors, like you are shopping for something important - because you ARE. There are many kinds of counselors. I'm the kind who listens and laughs and will challenge you (with your permission). If you aren't prepared for a little challenge to your thinking, you aren't engaged in our counseling process. Paying for someone to say you're right 100% of the time may feel good in the moment, but there is no growth in the comfort zone and no comfort in the growth zone.

Here's a little about me: I received a Ph.D. in Counseling in 2001 and am licensed as a professional counselor. I teach also and work with lots of issues and age groups. Helping people develop is my passion.

First, you will identify what you think is your core issue and goal. For some, it stems from confidence issues, anxiety, fear of failure, difficulties communicating in personal or professional relationships, or dealing with conflict. I have worked with people on how to get unstuck in lots of ways.

Despite my background in Crisis, this platform and my association with it, is not appropriate for emergencies regarding a desire to harm self or others or in cases of psychosis that require formal evaluations in an Emergency Room. It is my ethical and professional responsibility to refer clients to appropriate resources (911) in their locality in these instances. Otherwise, we can get to work.

My goal is to assist you as you grow the skills and insight to move forward and see results. There will be work involved, new ways of thinking, new behaviors and maybe, new decisions. When and if you are ready for this, I hope you will reach out.


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 $60 to $90 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. Schnurman just… gets me. She’s very direct and thorough and says the things I need to hear so I can make the necessary changes. I feel very confident that I will continually progress forward as a result of our time together. She’s a gem! So glad I found her.

Dr Schnurman is an extremely empathic therapist and also she is very wise regarding people and relationships. She has been amazingly helpful to me with my issues and she is very responsive and "present" during treatment. I highly recommend her services.

Dr. Schnurman offers the perfect balance of listening with empathy, but also knowing when to push back or question what I say. She has a great energy and I look forward to our calls each week! Would definitely recommend her to a friend.

I've been to many mental health professionals throughout the years and I consider myself a knowledgeable consumer about therapy (im also a psychologist as a job)- I am very impressed by Dr Schnurmans skills, empathy, and warmness/personableness. She is an excellent therapist and has been very helpful to me in my therapy journey. She rocks!

S.I.·Nov 30, 2020


Dr. Schnurmann is awesome. Her approach of listening, asking questions and helping me find solutions is exactly what I needed in a counselor.

E.R.·Oct 05, 2020


Dr. Schnurman immediately understood and was able to dive into the reason I was seeking counseling. My biggest reason for continuing to see her if that beyond the counseling she’s coaching and challenging me with what I need most!

L.I.·Aug 29, 2020


I've had a few therapists but this is my first time doing anything with Betterhelp and I'm incredibly pleased with Dr. Schnurman. She is very supportive and understanding and helps me steer clear of negative thinking.

S.P.·Aug 20, 2020


She's awesome! She pretty much immediately got me in the first session and it has only improved from that.

K.R.·Jul 30, 2020


She listens and points things out that are not obvious. We are just a match from heaven.

S.I.·Jul 29, 2020


Dr. Schnurman gives me applicable and real advice. She listens to everything I have to say, and responds with care and insight. She goes above & beyond in every interaction.

M.A.·Jul 29, 2020


Dr. Schnurman is dynamic and flexible with her approach, she is also kind and forward. She listens to what you need and asks the questions you'd wish you'd have asked yourself years ago.
