Chris Nicely


About Me

I am a licensed mental health counselor in Florida with over 10 years of experience working with clients from diverse backgrounds. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bi-polar, relationship issues, addictions, codependency, and spirituality. I also helped many people who have experienced trauma. neglect, and abuse.

My counseling style is based on empathy and understanding . I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I view the client more than a diagnostic label. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, existential therapy, mindfulness, and acceptance and commitment therapy(ACT). I will create a treatment plan to meet your specific needs.

"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves." Viktor Frankl

I look forward to working with you!
