Christine Schmidt, LCSW, CGP, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Brooklyn
Together, we can examine issues that are troubling you. Relationship difficulties and matters that make you feel depressed or anxious can be addressed in psychotherapy. I am especially interested in helping you understand and resolve troublesome behavior patterns, stresses about racial and ethnic identity, and sexuality. Navigating life's challenges - whether it's a relationship disappointment, illnesses, loss or injustices - are often too painful to address alone. Together, we will work to restore your hope, self-confidence and develop a winning spirit to use when encountering future obstacles.
As a therapist, I offer a combination of individual and group psychotherapy in my centrally located Brooklyn Heights office. My psychotherapy approach is dynamic and goal-oriented. My personal style is thoughtful and positive.
In addition to twenty-five years as a practitioner, I have extensive experience in team building, conflict resolution and youth development. From a systems perspective, I can help you understand and navigate peer pressure, submissiveness, power struggles and confront structural inequities.

Christine Schmidt's Groups

Racial Literacy Consultation Group

RLC Groups strengthen human service professionals' capacity to understand and respond to racial dynamics in work and social circles. Group leaders teach techniques to honestly and openly converse about race-related matters.

More about this group

Psychodynamic Group

Group therapy is about real-time interpersonal contact with others. Under my therapeutic guidance, participants deepen their understanding about the quality of their relationships, feelings that arise in interactions and how their communication impacts others.

More about this group

Women and the Body Experience

This is a short term group for women who want to examine the web of unhealthy cultural messages we've absorbed into our bodies about suppressing angry feelings. As the group leader, I offer didactic, supportive, and interactive opportunities for women to learn from each other in real-time.
