Hi! My name is Nicole, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate. Being a person of a very diverse background myself, I enjoy working with people of several different backgrounds and ethnicities (this is also where a good potion of my experience is). I have experience treating mental health disorders associated with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, stress, relationship issues are amongst other difficulties I have experience treating. My approach to therapy utilizes techniques from different theories, particularly Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Person-Centered Therapy. Practicing techniques from both theories allows for me to collaboratively work with unique needs of each specific client. A career in counseling gives me the opportunity to learn about a subjects that I genuinely enjoy, in addition to allowing me to join and connect with people in their mental health journey. During my free time I enjoy reading, dabbling in art, and spending time with my family and two cats. I can’t wait to meet you!
