About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) with experience working with both adolescent and adult clients. I specialize in counseling teens and young adults dealing with a wide range of issues , including anxiety, depression, identity formation, family conflict, substance abuse, etc. I am also passionate about and drawn to working with marginalized communities, including those living in poverty, the LGBTQ+ community, women, and racial/ethnic minorities, as well as other disenfranchised groups.

I have an eclectic approach to therapy where I draw from techniques from various therapeutic models, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), solution-focused therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), psychoeducation, etc., to meet client’s where they are at and address their specific needs in the most effective ways. I offer a warm, welcoming, and non-judgmental environment, in which I assist my client’s with formulating a deeper understanding and awareness of their issues to ensure they make healthier and more informed decisions about their lives.

Nick has been very helpful. Listens to what i have to say and understands what i am trying to get out of our sessions. Although we have only had a couple sessions so far i am looking forward to each session and the knowledge from him to help me with myself.
