Owner of Best Self Counseling LLC
Brae Schmidt, MS, LPC-IT, NCC
I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and young adults with a variety of mental health and behavioral concerns. I have experience in working with clients with ADHD, ASD, attachment issues, anxiety, self-esteem related issues, and a history of trauma. I use a client centered approach to counseling, so I believe that you are the expert of your own life, and I am here as a guide to help you along the way. I will tailor my approach to fit your unique needs and preferences, as I recognize that you are one of a kind with unique strengths and challenges.
I also use play-based strategies, including art and games, to help younger clients communicate their feelings and practice new skills. I find this approach is a fun and effective way to engage in counseling while also allowing for a collaborative and comfortable space where they feel safe and free to express themselves.
It is important that children, adolescents, and parents feel empowered, understood, and respected. Your child and family’s mental health is important to me, and you deserve a safe and non-judgmental environment to help you grow and learn new ways to enjoy life.
