About Nicole Schild

I graduated with a Master of Social Work from the University of Kentucky in 2003. I earned my Independent licensure in 2007 and opened my private practice in 2008. I began my career at the Children's Home of Northern Kentucky in 2001. Since then I have worked with children, adolescents, adults and families. My early experiences included working with juvenile delinquents and their families to help maintain home placement. I also provided similar services for dependent, neglected and/or abused children, while working closely with children and adolescents experiencing severe emotional and behavioral problems.

I have developed an eclectic mix of therapies to treat my clients. Examples of some are cognitive behavioral techniques, dialectical behavior strategies, play therapy and insight oriented treatment. The intervention used is dependent upon the client's needs and circumstances.

I have completed the following training: Domestic Violence, High Conflict Divorce, Sexually Inappropriate Behaviors, Parenting, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Addiction, Emotionally and Behaviorally Disturbed Children, Mood Disorders, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Anger, Attachment and Self Mutilation.

"I regularly refer children in difficult situations to Nicole. The children and their parents routinely report that they find Nicole to be empathic, helpful and genuinely interested in their improvement."
