Meet Salley

Enrichment Therapy Waco Texas - Salley Schmid Therapist Session

I am a Kansas native, having been transplanted to Texas from Colorado. I am pretty sure I was supposed to be born in Colorado, but my parents forgot to move there.

For several years now, I gladly call Waco, Texas my home and love this community and the people I have come to know and call my friends. I consider it a privilege to begin a business in such an entrepreneurially focused community. My passion is helping people succeed. I am the proud mother of Hailey and Jordan who are teenage twins. They keep my heart very full. I am blessed with a very supportive husband, Chris. We married in 2009. I also enjoy time with his son, who is the same age as my twin daughters.

My favorite times in life are with my family, especially when all 5 of us can be together.

"I understand and respect the important role personal values and spirituality play in change, growth and goal setting."

I earned a Master of Science in Family Therapy from a private Christian University in Wichita Kansas, Friends University in 1996. I have worked in a counseling and administrative capacity since that time in out-patient, in-patient, day treatment, residential, foster care, educational and private practice settings. I have worked in the field of mental health and human services since 1985. I value the roles faith and spirituality play in self-evaluation, change, growth, healing, relationships and success. I practice a holistic approach to helping people. Come explore your strengths and learn to harness the success that already lies within you for visible, life and relationship change. Discover the hindrances present in your life and plan to overcome them to achieve your best.

"One of my greatest honors has been to help people emerge strong and successful on the other side of a difficult life transition"


Enrichment Therapy - Salley Schmid Therapist with Family & Friends

Currently I provide Professional Development Training for human service professionals as well as Counseling services.

My counseling practice specializes Trauma and women’s sexuality as well as helping people transition to a place of strength. I work with individuals, and families from a family systems perspective. I have extensive experience working with individuals who have experienced chronic, remote, complex trauma, all forms of interpersonal trauma, traumatic grief, eating disorders, recovery from toxic relationships, infertility, adoption and attachment difficulties. I love to help people who have experienced or are in the midst of contemplating difficult life transitions.

My ideal client match is best described as a person over coming trauma, handling difficult relationship situations, going through a difficult life transition, or working to reclaim a sense of self. Additionally, I love working with people who desire: personal change, empowerment, success, joy and fulfillment in life and people who are willing to take risks to live out loud and whole heartedly. I often give homework and love when a client works hard outside of session time to further their progress towards their own healing and growth.
