Hello, my name is Gwendolyn "Nikki" Cane. Before talking about myself, I want to applaud you for making the move to seek help to work on your personal goals. I know finding the right person to work with can be overwhelming and tiring, because you want someone that understands you and your needs. Therefore, I thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. I am passionate about helping individuals reach healing, gain insight, and move into that desired next phase of life. My professional experience and continuous quest for knowledge is evidence of my desire to help various populations of people regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, culture, or ethnicity.
In reference to my previously stated professional experience, I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Tennessee. I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology and master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Alabama in Birmingham.

Nikki is both insightful and grounded in her approach. I’ve probably been to 6 therapists in my life, but none of them explained to me how to be a therapy patient. No one before Nikki grounded me in the balance between work in and outside of the sessions. And because we had that foundation she was able to gain a level of insight into me that no other therapist had ever come close to. She has given me simple yet sophisticated tools to make my life tangibly better.

She’s great. She always checks on me and nevera gives up on me even though I know I’m giving her a hard time sometimes. She’s helped me so much.

So far Gwendolyn has been a breathe of fresh air. I’m just getting started but just to have someone listen or read lol with biases and judgement is refreshing and I thank God for that!
