Ebony Nickerson

(MA, LPC, NCC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with over 5 years of combined experience in the counseling field and 8 years in career planning and coaching. I have worked with individuals dealing with a wide range of concerns including anxiety and depression, due to various life changes and during transition periods across their lifespan. Working in a community college setting has allowed me to work with a range of clients that are beginning their goals, changing their goals, or reaffirming and enhancing their goals at varying ages and phases of life. I love seeing my clients through the process based on their current needs and future aspirations.

I believe you are the expert on your life and that we can discover the tools and techniques, that you need for success, together. I have a very solution focused approach that has been helpful in moving clients beyond the feeling of "stuck". I am known for having a "Rogerian style" as I empower and motivate my clients through the process. It takes boldness to take this step towards receiving the help you need, and I commend you for this first step, of many, towards your life and career success.
I look forward to walking this part of your journey with you.

I am grateful I discovered Better Help, however I’m more grateful that I was paired with Ebony! She has helped me restore confidence in myself and my abilities. Ebony is soft spoken, which I find very comforting and calming. She really understands my concerns so I always leave a session feeling heard. Additionally, her memory and/or note taking is out of this world. She never makes me repeat myself. Each conversation is like we just talked the day before. I often struggle with streamlining my thoughts and emotions, but she does well at helping me focus on my issues and priorities. Lastly, she encourages me to make my OWN decisions and reminds me to always follow my purpose and be intentional with my next steps. Ebony is amazing and I’m thankful for her insight and expertise.

Ebony is very thoughtful, well spoken, and knows how to read into how a patient is processing. Ebony can teach you what you need to get the most out of your session.
