Work with Dr. Schmidt

In my offices and online Zoom rooms, I’m working to free people from their bondage to painful emotions, addictive habits, and bad relationships. I specialize in marriage, infidelity, single adult relationships, sex addiction, other chemical and behavioral addictions, and devoted loved ones who unknowingly enable people with those disorders. I’ve had education, training, research, publications, and vast clinical experience with each of these specialties.

Join Our Wellness Community

Wellness Education for Living and Loving (WELL, Inc.) is a nonprofit organization creating a free, anonymous, online test of personal wellbeing, the Better Life Test (BLT).  Using a practical model of wellness in continuous use for the past 3000 years, it evaluates toxic and healthy ways we pursue nine basic issues in life -- truth, respect, peace, support, love, mercy, sexuality, money, purpose, and health.  Demographic data from test takers will show causes and effects of each trait.   At to-the-well.org, people and groups can find a portal for taking the TAW, and three learning tools for each of the nine issues:  Life Lessons, Devotional Guides, and Parenting Tips.
