About Natasha Schmidt

About Natasha Schmidt

Hello, my name is Natasha; however, I go by Tasha.

I am currently a Licensed Social Worker while obtaining the hours required to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I provide a variety of therapy and am open to assisting many populations. I have experience counseling individuals in the criminal justice system struggling with mental health, domestic violence, homelessness, poverty, trauma, and drug addiction/ dual diagnosis.

Therapy Approach

My therapy approach is unique and different for every individual I am helping. I strongly believe in person-centered therapy- your healing journey is just as important as the reason you came to therapy, to begin with. I want anyone I serve to be an equal part of their process. Treatment should always be realistic and attainable for the individual or family. 

Processing the thoughts and feelings that lead to your behaviors is crucial to understanding yourself. We will work together to form a more concrete sense of self through trust, authenticity, and compassion.

The Healing Process

During therapy sessions, I use an eclectic approach. Again, the treatment goals should be made by us as a team. The healing process will be based on your wants, needs, expectations, and concerns. Although I use the eclectic approach, my favorite therapy involves motivational interviewing, evidence-based practice, DBT, and CBT.

Education and Training

I obtained my Associate’s Degree from Reading Area Community College, majoring in Social Work. Life happened after my associate’s degree; I had two more children while gaining experience working in the Social Work field. My professional experience involves non-profit homeless shelters, case management for homeless veterans, sex offenders, inpatient AOD counseling, individuals involved in the criminal justice system, and at-risk youth. My true passion is working in a social work capacity in the criminal justice system.

In recent years, I returned to Alvernia University for my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees. Although both degrees are in social work, I also maintained a concentration in Criminal Justice during my undergraduate degree.

Outside of Work

Outside of work, the most important thing to me is my family. I am very family oriented, so there are next to no activities that I don’t do with my huge, crazy, close-knit family. I love anything that involves the outdoors, traveling, and exploring. I am always excited about learning and experiencing new people, places, and things.
