Maternal Mental Health
Nicole believes that our actions, beliefs/patterns of thinking, and emotions are all connected. She works with individuals to connect these different parts of the self to help create a healthier view of themselves and their world. Providing a place to truly be heard and seen for who they are, Nicole offers space for clients to move towards healing and wholeness. She uses a solution-oriented approach to serving adolescents and adults experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, and chronic or terminal illnesses. This approach focuses on individual needs, tailored specifically to the goals of each client. Nicole also incorporates elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT,) and person centered therapy in her counseling practice.
In addition to the populations and focuses above, Nicole specializes in Maternal Mental Health. This includes but is not limited to treating women and mothers during pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, and postpartum related mental health struggles. Maternal Mental Health covers a wide area of concerns, providing care for women and their partners in what can often be a difficult and challenging season of life.
When not with clients, Nicole spends time with her family and friends. She enjoys reading, movie marathons, and spending time outside hiking, camping, or at the park.
