“We don't have to do all of it alone. We were never meant to." Brene' Brown
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Therapist and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor offering guidance to individuals, couples and families who are dealing with various life challenges. As a therapist, my objective is to help you address difficulties and work towards attaining your goals through a variety of treatment modalities. During our sessions, you will have the opportunity to build on your strengths and explore new skills, insights and solutions as determined by your needs and preferences. Schwing Counseling, PLLC provides several therapeutic environments, to include a relaxing traditional office space, HIPAA secure video counseling, or a private and peaceful outdoor setting.
EDUCATION & CREDENTIALS:
Appointment reminders will be sent prior to your therapy session. These text and/or email reminders allow you the opportunity to reschedule or cancel a session within 24 hours of your appointment without charge. No shows will be charged 100% of their scheduled appointment fee.
(Smartphone, Tablet, or Computer with camera needed)
Are you stressed about being stressed? Do you avoid situations and even opportunities that may cause you stress? Let's work together to identify some coping skills to manage your stress or even find new ways to look at stress. Either way, I want to help you effectively manage your response to those extra hormones surging through your body.
Is your body tired, are you experiencing sleepless nights, can't seem to concentrate, or lack interest in the things you once enjoyed? Psychotherapy allows you time and space to explore how your past thoughts and present actions can become unhealthy and ingrained. We can work together to find healthier perspectives and effective coping skills to manage difficult feelings. It is always preferred to meet face-to-face, but if you are unable to get out or just don't feel like it, I offer video counseling.
Whether you have been married for six months or 45 years, I will work with you to improve communication, intimacy, and connection through healing, validation and exploring new skills.

Most of us don't like speaking in front of a crowd, but sometimes we experience hard to control worry, nervousness and panicky feelings in everyday situations. Why is this happening? Where is it coming from? I've had personal experience working through anxiety and I know how debilitating it can be. I want to help you to successfully manage anxiety and live life to the fullest.
Do you ever wish you could run an idea by a third party to gain an unbiased perspective? To have a sounding board who can guide you and be a valuable resource? Do you put pressure on yourself to make the "right decision" the first time? I can help you explore options, work through dilemmas, challenges, and the feelings associated with major decision making.
"You are imperfect, you are wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging." Brene' Brown
