NICOL GEVING, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

    I strive to provide a warm, safe, and supportive environment in which my clients can explore the issues and challenges they face. I strongly believe in the power of the therapeutic partnership to help uncover the strengths and resources we all possess to bring about the changes we desire in our lives.

     

    I feel privileged to be able to offer my assistance to others on this shared journey and commend you for reaching out for help to make things better. 

 

    I have always been a “helper” and over the years have worked in a variety of capacities in schools, community service agencies, women’s shelters, and as a mother of two children (who are now adults) and three dogs. I believe that each role has helped me to better understand the issues my clients face in their own lives.

CARISSA SCHMADEKE, LISW

Licensed Independent Social Worker

    I strive to empower individuals and their families to overcome life’s challenges and become the best version of themselves. By creating a safe and supportive environment conducive for healing, I believe everyone has the ability to uncover their strengths and find resources best suited for them in reaching their goals. 

 

    I work with children, adolescents, and adults, and for the past three years, I have been utilizing evidence-based interventions such as cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, client-centered, and trauma-informed therapy to assist clients in reaching their goals. I studied at the University of Northern Iowa where I obtained a master’s degree in Social Work with a trauma-informed care specialization. I hold an active license as a Licensed Independent Social Worker in the state of Iowa.

 

    I firmly believe that the therapeutic relationship is vital for the success of the therapy, and I have found success in this while working with those who have concerns such as anxiety, depression, trauma, anger, grief and loss, and behavioral difficulties, among many others. I have a passion for people and believe that everyone deserves a safe space to work through some of life’s most difficult moments. I would be honored to have the opportunity to work with you to identify and achieve your own personal goals.

Counseling is a unique relationship between client and counselor, and throughout the course of

counseling we can create and work towards goals, growth, and wellness.

As your counselor, it is my goal to ensure that you have a safe space to bring any feelings and

challenges that you might be experiencing. I strongly believe that the therapeutic experience is

different for each client, and that your experiences and stories are unique to you. You are the

expert in your own life, and as your counselor, I am here to help you learn about yourself.

 

I have previous experience working with substance use issues, victims of domestic violence,

housing and the homeless, and those considering suicide or self-harm. I believe each of these

experiences have helped me grow
