Hope. Grow. Flourish. We can do this! Let’s begin now.


"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom."
- Viktor Frankl

My mission is to help you ignite meaningful change and cultivate a deeper level of resilience that will be sustained long after our therapeutic work has dissolved, no matter how challenging the circumstances.

I invite clients to a calming sanctuary within our busy, stress-loaded world; a space optimal for authentic sharing about struggles and then strategizing to overcome challenges like mental illness, strained relationships, difficult significant life transitions such as divorce, and navigating through trauma or grief. I provide counseling to adults, adolescents and children and I also work with couples and families.

In the past 20 years I have served the general population in higher education with traditional undergraduate students as well as seasoned, working professionals: I thoroughly enjoy serving a wide range of clients! I love my career and the special privilege of journeying with those who choose to share their unique experiences in our shared sanctuary. Clients know that a better tomorrow begins today—but even good change can be intimidating or hard to ignite on your own.

As I launch private practice at my new location, new clients will be able to enjoy immediate scheduling rather than being placed on a wait list. Contact me today to schedule a free 15 minute consultation at one of my two office locations or by phone or telehealth online conferencing.

Meet Jennifer B Schmidt LCPC, MA

Food Allergy Counselor Directory & Website

To be entrusted to journey with clients is a tremendous privilege and responsibility. Through private practice I provide frequent, (usually weekly) therapy and then continue to be available for periodic sessions when clients experience a new or evolving challenge. I have over 20 years of seasoned clinical counseling experience and have helped thousands of clients grow through serious hardships including mental illness. My therapeutic approach honors our full human capacity to grow, to cultivate resilience, and to ultimately have the confidence in our capacity to flourish despite hardships.

I teach clients coping skills to improve emotional regulation; tools to develop a resilient mindset; relaxation and mindfulness techniques. I most frequently utilize cognitive behavioral interventions (CBT) and embrace an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approach

I customize my therapeutic approach to every unique client’s specific circumstances, goals and strengths as we journey toward a greater sense of peace, hope and authentic joy.

I am a licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC) in the State of Kansas and a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the State of Missouri. I have a master’s degree in counseling and undergraduate degree in psychology.
