I am a Licensed Professional Counselor & Clinical Evaluator in Georgia, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in New Mexico, and a Master Addiction Counselor through the board of the National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) with over 20 years of experience. I have worked with individuals from a large variety of populations including military, corrections, addiction, crisis, domestic violence, developmental delayed that have concerns with trauma (physical, verbal, emotional, etc.), depression, anger, anxiety, parenting problems, ADHD, and other co-occurring and behavioral health concerns.
My first priority is to build a rapport with the individuals I work with to ensure they feel comfortable enough to share and interact with me on a personal/professional level. I believe in treating anyone with respect, empathy, sensitivity, and compassion. Counseling is not a place of judgment and labeling individuals. My motto is to meet people where they are and to treat people the way I want to be treated. My approach is person-centered which means that everyone posses the answer within with some guidance. I am comfortable with using a combination of techniques to assist individuals with their transition.
Thank you for reading my profile and considering me. It takes courage to seek out help to ensure a fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you and please call me Nicky!

She is the most helpful strengthening counselor I have ever had and she inspires me to be the best me I can be. Talking with her always leaves me feeling uplifted and I love that I can make her laugh. My talks with her and her advice and listening ear are extremely valuable to me and I’m so glad a good fit to help me continuously progress on my journey. Thank you!!!!
I've never trusted a counselor like i trust Nicky. I feel like she genuinely wants to help me and sees me for what I actually am. It's been a very long time since I've felt this comfortable opening up to anyone. I'm very grateful for Nicky and everything she has done for me and the other people she's helped around the world. She gives me hope and has really helped me believe in myself a bit more. She probably hates my time management, but overall, i reappy lucked out. Thank you.
Nicky, is so amazing!
I appreciate that I feel as though I’m chatting with a wise friend while in my sessions! While I sometimes wish sessions lasted longer, I like this platform and speaking with Anicklette, in particular. I’ve talked with other counselors, but I needed someone that could relate to my experience. I’ve had many times where I simply needed an unbiased person to let me talk for 30 minutes, and she was just that! She also offers solutions or even gives feedback on solutions I’ve come up with on my own. I tend to feel a weight lifted once we get off the phone, which is why I tend to schedule these calls. Alleviating some of life’s heaviness is so important.
We haven't had a formal session, but Anicklette checks in with me regularly. I appreciate her time and attention.
Appreciative of her experienced guidance.
Very friendly and lovely, she is very comforting and easy to talk to. She was able to pinpoint my struggles and difficulties and provide practical approaches to help me overcome.
Nicky is a very confident and competent counselor. She uses her active listening skills to ensure that her interpretation correctly matches what I am saying. Very euthusiastic, personable and humourous!
I have been in counseling before and it did not last long.... I have such an amazing connection with Anickiette that it has made me feel very comfortable
Great therapist, great insight and knowledge.
Anicklette listened to my issues and discussed ways to overcome them. I always felt better after talking to her.
