Toni Schmeider, LCDP

About Me

We Are Currently a Virtual Office 

Accepting New Clients in February

I have my MS, LCDP, CCJP, CATP, CGSC and also Recovery Coach Certified when the individual needs. I have 17 years of training in the criminal justice, substance abuse and mental health field.

I am well rounded on the particulars of Rhode Island District Court System.  I am particularly concerned with the substance abuse related issues, impact of loss and trauma as well as improving interventions to support trauma recovery for better emotional, physical, and relationship health.  

My approach emphasizes the mutual development of goals for therapy and providing ongoing evaluation of the therapeutic approach. Services can include individual, family, & group therapy.

I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, and Crisis Intervention.  I continue to seek ongoing updates to my skills and knowledge base. 

I have invested in an approach emphasizing a more integrative, dynamic, and holistic approach to mental health and substance abuse.

I work with pre-teens, teens, adults, and families; I believe that it may help benefit them to have a safe space for them to process their thoughts and emotions. I believe, the purpose of therapy, is help set people free of what is truly weighing them down.

All About Therapy

Personalized Attention for All Your Needs

Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in my sessions, I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. I have the tools and professional experience to help you get back on track.
