About Me ☺
I’d first like to acknowledge your courage in reaching out, and thank you for taking a chance in living a happier and more fulfilled life. Hello, I am Alma Nicole Duarte, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California with over 6 years of experience in working with at-risk teens, adults, and families in a variety of situations from foster care, human trafficking, addictions, and homelessness.
I believe in the power of relationships and how a therapeutic relationship can help you overcome many obstacles. I will meet you where you are at emotionally, and wait for the change to happen on your own terms. My approach is client-centered, genuine, nonjudgmental, and with an unconditional positive regard. I am here to listen to you and help you make a change in your life through an objective lens.
When you are ready to have someone listen, reach out, and there are people waiting to help you. I am here waiting patiently to help ☺

Nicole has been amazing. Using this app and talking to her has completely changed my life and helped me look at things in a different perspective. It’s great to be able to have a phone call or even a quick message back and forth whenever needed.
