NICOLE SCHWEON, LPC, LLC
Licensed Professional Counselor
ADULT INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING SERVICES
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Virginia, as well as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Addictions Professional in the state of Florida. I am also a Nationally recognized and certified counselor and have spoken at various agencies and conferences on mental health issues. I earned my Masters in Counseling and Education from Lehigh University and have been working in the mental health field for 25 years.
I am a seasoned clinician in the areas of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, pregnancy and loss, and women's issues. I'm experienced in providing counseling to those that have Borderline Personality Disorder and I am familiar with utilizing Dialectical Behavior Therapy techniques as a form of effective treatment. I co-facilitated several groups that focus on learning how to use those skills to improve relationships, manage emotions more effectively, and to live life more efficiently.
Additionally, I really enjoy working with the other types of helpers in the world. These include: first responders, law enforcement, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel as well as mental health therapists, and other medical and licensed professionals. Supporting these helpers successfully navigate their lives and careers is an important and significant part of my practice.
Regardless of the issues that may bring you to counseling, I will always say and truly believe that you are the expert on you. Within yourself, you have the ability to be more brave, more self-assured, and have more control within your life. I'd love to join you for that journey as you embrace your own spirit and allow it to grow.
