Counseling profile picture Dr. Erik Schmitt, LPC, NCC

My goal as a counselor is to encourage and promote healthy families and empower individuals to find purpose and direction in their lives. My clients and I will work together to develop a set of goals and game plan for being successful. Through my nine years working with children, adolescents, couples, and families, and subsequent PhD training, I have experience navigating a variety of issues. These include: anxiety, depression, attention concerns, and family and couples’ dynamics. Through a holistic counseling approach, I will help clients become their best self by promoting the healing, development, and integration of all aspects of one’s life.

I trust my clients’ strengths and abilities to become their greatest selves through discovery of their innate self-worth. I embrace and value the uniqueness and individuality of my clients and strive to be an advocate for all. I specialize in working with individuals overcoming trauma. I look forward to assisting you in your journey to peace.
