Briana Schmidt


I specialize in supporting individuals healing from trauma, C-PTSD, eating/body image issues, and codependency, focusing on understanding triggers and managing symptoms. My goal is to help clients process trauma, build resilience, and embrace a fulfilling life. Using a systemic, nonpathologizing perspective, I consider the impact of ethnicity, culture, gender, sexuality, and spirituality. My approach is eclectic and trauma-informed, combining various strategies to empower clients. I offer a conversational, warm style, ensuring a safe space for exploration, enriched with humor, respect, and curiosity. I'm deeply engaged by the stories shared, employing them to enhance understanding and context in the healing journey.

I am in-network with Aetna, BlueCross and BlueShield, Cigna and Evernorth, Empire BlueCross BlueShield, Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, Highmark BCBS of Western New York, Optum, Oscar Health, Oxford, UMR, and UnitedHealthcare UHC | UBH.
