Together Better Stronger with Dr. Beth Schmit

About Elizabeth S. Schmit, Ph.D.

I’m Dr. Beth Schmit, a licensed psychologist in Portland, Oregon.


I have over 20 years’ experience providing psychotherapy and counseling to individual adults and couples in Portland and SW Washington.


I also have a passion for teaching classes and workshops on the topics of marriage and relationship skills, and Emotion Coaching for parents and teachers. It may sound idealistic, but I believe that by getting serious about improving our relationship skills, we can each make a significant impact on world peace…one healthy relationship at a time!


My husband and I are celebrating 30 years of marriage this year, and we have two grown daughters. 

What do I like to do when I’m not working? Going to plays, reading about psychology and mental health, writing, hiking in the PNW, spending time with family & friends, and drinking great coffee.
