About Denise Schonwald

Hello! I’m Denise Schonwald, a nationally licensed mental health counselor, published author, and public speaker dedicated to supporting your mental well-being. With over 30 years of experience as a registered nurse (RN) in the ICU, I witnessed firsthand the struggles faced by patients and their families – stress, anxiety, guilt, and fear. Inspired to make a difference, I delved into techniques that foster mental and emotional well-being, leading me to become a spiritually based LMHC and Medical intuitive.

My holistic approach integrates mental and physical health, empowering clients to achieve overall wellness. I specialize in addressing various challenges, including anxiety, depression, panic, marital issues, family conflicts, childhood trauma, and more. During sessions, my therapy dog, Henry, provides comfort and support.

I find joy in engaging in activities like competitive tennis, yoga, meditation, and Reiki. Recognizing the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit, I encourage my clients to explore different avenues in their journey towards achieving optimal health and wellness. By incorporating different practices into their lives, they can unlock their full potential and cultivate a harmonious balance within themselves. Together, we embark on a transformative path towards well-being and self-discovery.

Beyond individual and family counseling, I extend my support to the wider community through engaging speaking engagements and lectures nationwide. I’m particularly passionate about advocating for the mental health of first responders.

If you’re organizing an event or seeking a speaker on mental health topics, I’d be honored to share my insights. Feel free to reach out to my office today and let’s make a positive impact together.

Looking forward to connecting with you!

Cancellation Policy

Many clients call my office for counseling and several are in crisis. While my schedule is often full, extra time in the evening or on the weekend becomes necessary.

Unfortunately, the day before or the same day of a scheduled appointment, patients cancel or simply do not show up for their scheduled session.

While I realize emergencies, meetings, business and school functions can happen and people do get sick, it becomes very disruptive to the practice.

Therefore, all clients who cancel the day before or the same day of their scheduled appointmnet will be charged $75.00. Payments must be made before another appointment is offered.

Thank you for understanding.
