Hi! I’m Nicole. I think of therapy as having a friend who totally has your back and focuses totally on you. My therapy experience is with children age 0-18 years in foster and adoptive homes. I did therapy with them, their foster family, their biological family, and their siblings. By extension of that I worked closely to address the needs of the adults as well as the children. I love to listen, I like to encourage concrete goals, and I like to use mindfulness for a variety of issues, but it’s also just a nice way to end a session (if you like.). I have most experience in trauma and with children, but have been sought out to provide therapy to adults as well. I say I can talk to anyone about anything (appropriate to age). I would love to work with you, see what you’re goals are, and see how I can help you meet them. Let’s do this!

Alana is very attentive and listens to hear my concerns and not simply respond. As well as giving me a multitude of solutions and tools to work with.
