My Approach to Helping

Hi there, I'm Nicole. Taking the step to seek therapy can be a transformative decision, and I commend you for your courage and willingness to embark on this journey of self-discovery and growth.

I specialize in providing compassionate and empowering therapy for adults who find themselves using alcohol or other unhealthy behaviors as a coping mechanism to navigate the challenges of life. Whether you're facing overwhelming stressors, struggling with the demands of parenthood, or recovering from trauma, depression, or anxiety, I am here to offer support and guidance.

In our sessions, my approach is rooted in empathy, respect, and collaboration. I believe that you are the expert on your own experiences and have the inner strength to overcome obstacles. Together, we will create a space where you feel seen, heard, and valued, free from judgment or shame.

Through a person-centered and strengths-based approach, we will explore the underlying factors contributing to your alcohol use and work towards developing healthier coping mechanisms. I integrate evidence-based modalities, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, and trauma-informed techniques, to tailor our sessions to your needs.

My ultimate goal is to empower you to reclaim your life, build resilience, and cultivate the skills necessary for long-lasting change and emotional well-being. As we embark on this therapeutic journey together, I will be your advocate -- offering guidance, support, and unwavering belief in your capacity to heal.

If you're ready to take the next step toward positive transformation, I encourage you to reach out. I offer a safe and confidential space where we can explore your challenges, discover your inner resources, and pave the way for a more fulfilling and balanced life. I'm honored to be a part of your healing process, and I look forward to connecting with you soon.
