Ratings for Dr. Gretchen A. Schmutz
I have been seeing Dr. Schmutz for several years now. She was able to help me through a very bad stretch of depression. For that I'm extremely grateful. We now continue to work with some of my issues. She knows me very well and uses that knowledge to help me work through experiences. I would recommend her to anyone seeking professional help with some caring empathy.
Gretchen is a terrific doctor. She is knowledgeable, wise and patient. She wants you to succeed and it shows. If you are looking to really go to the core of your issues and learn to overcome them, she is the one for you. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is battling any level of depression or other mental illness. With her help, I learned how to understand and overcome my depression. The tools and the life that she helped me regain are incredible gifts and for that I am truly grateful.
I found her manner appalling, without a shred of empathy. Felt as if I were in court and she was the prosecutor. Being intelligent and insightful is only half of the equation. Meeting her was the worst experience I've ever had interviewing possible therapists.
Dr. Schmutz is possibly the most insightful PsyD in the Midwest. It is very apparent that she graduated from a prestigious university, and earned a PsyD from one of the most cutting edge, highly regarded PsyD programs in the country. Dr. Schmutz worked with our teenage daughter, and fostered our daughter's resilience and cultivated her self esteem. After working with Dr. Schmutz she is thriving. Dr. Schmutz also had a profound impact on our family. She took risks, and worked beyond conventional boundaries. We are so grateful for what she did. I do not doubt that when our daughter attains majority she will reflect on her experience with Dr. Schmutz, and realize that no clinician could had such an impact. Dr. Schmutz was especially supportive of both my wife and I. She never rushed to judgement and all of her conclusions were based on scientific rationales and principles. We miss working with her!
Dr.Schmutz has a way of understanding people that is exceptional. Her warm and caring approach is well matched by her insight and thoughtfulness. There are very few people or therapists who can help you feel as accepted and understood as she can. She is great at understanding complex situations and problems. I would recommend her to my family and friends highly. An ethical and thoughtful clinician. Two thumbs up!!
