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.

Reviews

Written by J.O. on Oct 09, 2018 after counseling with Alma Nicole for 2 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

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.
