About me

You have arrived at Betterhelp which means you are searching for a way to address some issues you have already identified are there. You have taken the first step and you should feel proud of yourself for being here! Connecting to the right counselor can be an overwhelming task. I'd like to explain more about myself to help you in that decision.

I have been in the field of social work for over 20 years and I hold a license as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I work from a strengths-based, solutions-focused, client-centered approach. Meaning that I firmly believe in the capacity for individuals to solve their own problems - they just may need a little push and direction in seeing the goals and how to obtain them. I have worked within all areas of social work practice to include public, private, and non-profit. My specialty areas of practice are abuse and neglect, anxiety/depression, work/life balance, mood disorders, co-dependency issues, and issues related to military, veterans, and dependents. The feedback I receive from clients are that they find me caring and upfront, the communication is more of a collaboration, and I assist well with identifying issues and helping to identify possible ways to navigate the situations, learn about yourself, and interact with the world.

My work hours are typically Monday-Thursday between 5a-330p EST. I do not typically work on the weekends; however, I do typically check messages at least once.

I know how difficult it is to find a counselor you can connect with and feel secure in talking about your concerns, but I'd be honored to offer that support as you work through your journey.

Nicki is wonderfully direct, supportive, and helps me recognize the areas I need work where I may not have seen before. I would go to her 10 times over if given the opportunity or need.

Nicki is amazing. She has brought some facts about myself that I was not aware of and made me have some reflections about myself. I would recommend her to anyone.
