About Natasha Schmidt

Hello, my name is Natasha Schmidt (she/her). However, I go by Tasha.

I am currently a Licensed Social Worker (LSW).  I am in the process of obtaining the hours required to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).

I provide therapy for a variety of issues and am open to helping people from all walks of life. I have experience counseling people in the criminal justice system struggling with mental health, current/past domestic violence, homelessness, poverty, trauma, drug addiction, and dual diagnosis.

Approaching Therapy with Me

My therapy approach is unique and different for every person I am helping. I strongly believe in person-centered therapy because your healing journey is just as important as the reason you came to therapy. I want you to feel like you’re an equal part of the therapy process. Our goals should always be realistic and attainable for you or your role in your 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 Process for Healing

During therapy sessions, I use an eclectic approach with goals set by us as a team. The healing process will be based on your wants, needs, expectations, and struggles. I utilize some of my favorite techniques, including motivational interviewing, evidence-based practice, DBT, ACT, and CBT.

Education and Background

I obtained my Associate’s Degree from Reading Area Community College, majoring in Social Work. Life happened after I earned 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.  One of my true passions 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.
