Licensed Professional Counselor
Nicole believes everyone is more than their lowest moments. When someone experiences significant trauma and stress, they experience profound changes that impact the world around them. For many, the experiences of trauma and stress contribute to painful coping behaviors, in attempts to engage in self-preservation or self-protection. As the mind and body aim to cope with trauma and stress, the experiences of depression, anxiety, anger, isolation, low self-esteem, and self-sabotage
may feel burdensome, thereby affecting relationships, jobs, home life, and a sense of autonomy.
Nicole is driven by compassion and works to provide a non-judgmental space that encourages self-knowledge and self-compassion. She aspires to cultivate curiosity, self-reflection, and collaboration. Together, she works with clients to develop tools and skills to reverse patterns contributing to self-blame and disconnection. She utilizes culturally competent care and consistently strives to educate herself as an ally.
Nicole draws from a number of theories and modalities, including, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), as well as other compassionate and mindfulness-based practices. She has experience treating PTSD, depression, and anxiety in conjunction with individuals struggling with life adjustments, interpersonal/relationship conflicts, and self-esteem issues.
