About Me

Greetings! I am Dr. Schneider. I am a licensed professional counselor holding licenses in both Virginia and Wisconsin. My education includes earning a B.S. degree, majoring in Psychology and Sociology, an M.S. degree, majoring in Rehabilitation Counseling, and a Ph.D., majoring in Educational Psychology. My professional experience spans more than 40 years, having worked with children, teens, adults, families, couples, and persons from diverse cultural backgrounds, in outpatient clinic settings, a primary health care setting, and intensive in-home community-based settings. My primary counseling approaches include being person-centered, trauma-informed and gender sensitive; using cognitive-behavioral, brief solution-focused, and self-discovery techniques. Also, I believe the mind, body and spirit are inter-connected. Counseling and therapy are not always easy, but exploring your life’s meaning and purpose while working during the healing process is usually well worth the effort. I always encourage and welcome questions. And, one of my favorite lines has always been, “A little humor always helps,” so you can count on that. I look forward to our professional time together. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Written by J.A. on Nov 08, 2021 after therapy with Craig for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

Dr Schneider is the consummate professional - he makes me think about the issues at hand and provides many relevant points to consider - I especially am drawn to his great sense of humor!

Written by J.A. on Oct 19, 2021 after therapy with Craig for 6 months on issues concerning relationship

I would describe Dr.Schneider’s approach as old school. He tends to listen more so than provide solution. I think he is very kind and means well, his style is just not best suited for my needs.

Really like him. I’ve struggled with mental illness my life, best fit for me I’ve ever had. Challenges me in ways that are uncomfortable.

Dr. Schneider is skilled, experienced, kind, empathetic, and unequivocally one of the best counselors I've met in person or online and I recommend him wholeheartedly.

The breadth and depth of his experiences allows for meaningful conversations and perspective that only come with the kind of expertise acquired through years of practicing.
