Maeve Nicoll, MSW, APSW

Advanced Practice Social Worker
Mental Health Professional


The foundations of my work are empathy and growth.  I am passionate about offering a safe space for my clients where they can learn more about themselves, while finding validation and togetherness through the highs and lows of life.  I bring a calming presence to the room that allows for a meaningful and honest connection between the client and myself.

I have experience working with early Autism intervention support, individuals involved in child welfare, criminal justice, struggling with substance issues, PTSD, domestic violence, ADHD, and a variety of psychotic disorders.  I have a passion for working with children and families who have experienced trauma.  I am excited to walk with you, as I continue to grow on my professional journey.

If you feel Maeve may be a great fit for your child, Call or email today to schedule a free 10-minute consultation.
