Welcome and thank you for taking the time to learn about me, reaching out for help is sometimes the hardest step.
I am a Professional Clinical Counselor in the state of Ohio with 14 years of experience in the mental health field. I have worked with individuals, ages 3 to adult in a variety of settings, with a broad range and severity of clinical issues, including complex trauma/abuse, adjustment, anxiety, depression, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), family conflict, mood and personality disorders. My career started in a partial hospitalization setting with children, focused on behavior and crisis management. I knew I had a love for helping others overcome some of their toughest struggles. I continued my work in both community and private settings, providing counseling to children and adults. More recently, I have dedicated my time to advocating for more mental health support in our society, schools and institutions. I truly believe self-care is key to success and that has been lost in our busy society.
My approach to counseling is solution-focused, but most importantly, it will be working with you as a team! We will identify your most important concerns and define your goals for reaching out to BetterHelp. It will be important to know that you have achieved change and that you are happy with your progress. I will provide you with timely and attentive communication that is both respectful and open-minded, constructive and fair. I am happy that you took the time to reach out and spend some time on yourself, I look forward to taking this journey with you.

Nichol has been instrumental in me keeping my collective mind together after several life-changing events. I lost my mother, had kid and grandkids move in with me, dealt with estate issues.... I literally could not have survived this past year without her.
She has been great! Very supportive, smart, and understanding. Doesn’t make me feel bad for sharing and that has helped be very open and honest with myself.
Nichol is great. I have been to other counselors where I felt uncomfortable and did not want to share my feelings. I feel like I can be open and honest with her and she’s so down to earth. I honestly look forward to our sessions.
She's very calm and understanding. She never makes you feel judged.
Nichol has been super helpful for me! I really love how she pays attention to details and challenges me to think about things in my life and how those may play on my depression or anxiety.
Nichol is such a great counselor! She listens and tries to help you understand what you are going through, while helping you with coping activities. She’s very warm and kindhearted. I enjoy my sessions with her!
Nichol has been incredible to work with. She is patient, kind, understanding, and knowledgeable. She pushes you to challenge yourself while respecting your limits and she is willing to meet you where you are. I'm so thankful for the work we have done together because it has resulted in noticeable progress.
Nikki has been GREAT for me. She is so easy to talk with which makes it comfortable to open up! She has given me great advice/suggestions and homework that is doable!! I can feel the weight lifting. Thank you Nikki ♥️
Nichol is a great counselor. She listens to me, respects what I’m comfortable talking about. Nichol does not push sensitive subjects and allows you to communicate on your terms. I believe Nichol is easy to talk to and with only two sessions... I feel like I can trust her. 10/10 would recommend.
Nichol's insights are almost eerily accurate. She makes connections between my thought processes and struggles that I would have never realized alone, and she helps me navigate them in ways that work for me. I wasn't so sure about working with a remote therapist, but Nichol has removed any doubt I had. She really is a gem.
Nicki has helped me totally change my life for the better this past year. I can’t say enough about this whole experience, it’s been fantastic and I couldn’t have done it without her!
She's amazing. She goes above and beyond. She is very understanding very empathetic but also firm when she needs to be. She's helped me so much in the last few weeks.
I've only had one live session with Nichol but she has already been a tremendous help to me. I know she will get me where I need to be!
Seriously the best thing I have ever done and I couldn't have asked for a better person. Nichol is simply awesome and understanding.
Nicki's expertise and care has helped to significantly change parts of my life. Although I've been in therapy before, she has helped me see situations and myself differently, which has been invaluable to how I process and deal with everything. She's professional and kind, and seems to be extremely knowledgable and interested in her work, often doing extra research to send over good articles, etc. Whether you do better with homework, messaging, or talking via video, she is great at helping people in the way that works best for them. Highly recommend!
I highly recommend Nichol! She is a great person and amazing at what she does. She made me feel very comfortable which allowed me to open up more freely than I normally do. Thank you for everything Nichol.
Nichol has been very helpful and extremely easy and relaxing to work with. Her demeanor lets me feel free to talk with her and work through some issues. I truly appreciate her time listening to me go on and on and on and giving her perspective and other ways to view a situation.
Nichol offers compassionate support and concrete, actionable steps for healing specific issues. She's warm, approachable, quick to respond, and very knowledgeable.
I appreciate Nichol and her ability to help with my situation. It is helpful to have someone knowledgeable to listen and offer support for dealing with the stresses of life.
This is my first experience with counseling services and Nichol has been so helpful and supportive! I couldn't have asked for a better counselor and I can feel my tensions and anxiety being lifted already.
Starting counseling online has been the best experience for me thus far. Helpful too! My counselor Nichol Stasko is the best!
Nichol has been an incredible help to me. She is quick to respond, and actually keeps up with what I tell her and checks in often. She is easy to talk to and I really do feel like her responses are thoughtful and genuine. She is helping me through a very difficult time in my life, and I’m so glad I reached out and was connected with her.
She has been a great help. Very supportive and non-judgemental. She has definitely fostered feeling of openness and honesty that is very helpful in my recovery. I would highly recommend her.
She is very helpful and kind. She messages me all during the week on how I am coping with my anxiety. Shares tools that she thinks may be helpful to my situation.
I don't even know where to begin, Nichol is so nice and helpful. I have never felt so comfortable opening up and talking to someone as I do her. She gives great direction and advice and listens and responds in such a great and kind way. She's never made me feel like any of my problems are ridiculous or uncalled for. She is one of those counselors you want to talk to every couple days just to feel better!
