About me

Hi! My name is Nichola, I am licensed in New Jersey with 6 years of professional work experience. I'm a LCSW and LCADC. I have experience and extensive training assisting clients with psychotic disorders (schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder), postpartum depression, and substance use disorders. In addition, I also assist clients with stress and anxiety, PTSD, trauma and abuse, & motivation, self esteem, and confidence building techniques. I am also trained in treating first responders and active services members and retired military veterans. I believe everyone has strengths that will assist each individual client in recovery while overcoming the things that challenge them. I believe in a judgement and stigma free environment. Our session is your safe space to discuss issues you are experiencing. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy takes a lot of courage! I will help assist you on your journey to recovery from mental health issues, substance use, or both. I look forward to working with you!

Please note, I make every attempt to respond to messages as soon as possible. However, I will respond within 24 hours. I provide evening and weekend hours (day/evening) only.

Although my thoughts may be scattered, Nichola listens closely, helps me identify what I can control, and provides new strategies and encouragement. She is very realistic and I appreciate her deep understanding of how trauma can affect you in different situations.
