Hello, and thank you for considering me to be your counselor here at betterhelp!
I have worked as an online counselor for over three and a half years. During that time I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients on a variety of issues and concerns. I hope you will choose me to join you on the journey of self exploration and growth here at betterhelp!
I am a licensed professional counselor with 11 years of experience working within many areas of the mental health system. I am licensed in the states of Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Montana, West Virginia, and Delaware. Not only do I work as a counselor here at betterhelp, but I am also the supervisor at a partial hospitalization program. Working in the mental health field is truly my passion in life.
I enjoy providing counseling to people through betterhelp for many reasons. I feel that online counseling gives people who may not have reached out for help in the more traditional sense of counseling (face to face) an option to receive the same level of care. I believe online counseling can be very effective and offers amazing advantages to clients. Online counseling is a great resource for people who may have traditional life stress, maybe have a mental health diagnosis, or just want a safe place to talk to someone outside their inner circle.
I am passionate about providing quality counseling services to my clients, and I do not use one set approach or theoretical orientation. No two people are the same, so my interventions and techniques reflect that. Through my education and experiences, I have an understanding of what may work best for any given symptom or diagnosis, but ultimately you are the expert in your life . I meet each individual where they are at in their life. I believe counseling is a joint process, and I am here to provide guidance, perspective, and I do not judge.
If you read through testimonials, you will see that my style is laid back yet direct. My clients are relaxed, laugh, and crack jokes all while working on their goals and what brought them to seek out extra support.
I hope you make the decision to give online counseling a try, and that you feel I could be the right counselor for you!

I requested to work with Nichole after doing some research and reading reviews. And I am more than happy that I did that. Nichole was great from the start. She's very patient, understanding, attentive, and if you really make an effort in executing the advice she gives you, you'll never regret it. Highly recommend! Thank you, Nichole!
Nichole has helped me through a difficult separation and been sensitive to my struggles with mental illness. She recognizes my needs and also sympathizes with my partner in the scenarios to help me understand both sides of things. She is an amazing coach and extremely understanding.
