He's been great. He listens and processes what I say and inputs things that make sense. He thinks of a course of action and that eases my mind.

Nicholas operates with a level of clarity and humanity that makes you feel truly seen and heard. He encourages you to take your journey at whatever pace you feel comfortable with but also provides you with insights that cut deep into the core of what’s troubling you so that you can be intentional with the next steps in your healing. He takes time to really get to know you and meets you where you’re at. This is reflected in the care he takes in his responses and in the genuine curiosity of his questions. I definitely feel like I have someone in my corner, willing to be in the trenches with me as I go through the process of change, all the while modeling the compassion and gentle acknowledgement with which we should all hope to treat ourselves. I would recommend Nicholas without reservation!

Nicholas is awesome! I was so reluctant at first that I didn’t respond to his first message ever. He was persistent without being pushy and continued to message me just letting me know he’s there. I broke down crying and that was the start of my journey. He’s validating yet tells it like it is and from different perspectives. Thank you Nicholas!
