About Nicole Schild
As a licensed clinical social worker for the states of Ohio and Kentucky, I provide counseling services for individuals and families concerned about their psychological well being.
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, attachment therapy, trauma resolution modalities, mindfulness, and insight oriented treatment. The intervention used is dependent upon the client’s needs and circumstances.
Throughout my 25 years of practice I have been trained in many clinical areas of interest such as domestic violence, high conflict divorce, abuse, parenting, dialectical behavior, trauma and attachment therapies. Currently, my practice leans toward cases involving trauma from single episode events, developmental / complex trauma and dissociative disorders. Relational conflict is a focus with individual clients as well which dovetails into the trauma work on many occasions. Parenting and divorce conflicts are additional system conflicts I treat. Lastly, I make time in my caseload for adolescents and school aged children along with their families to achieve emotional regulation for the child and system in which they are part. The resources and treatment I offer support the development and maintenance of the entire self.
