About Me

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read a little about my experience!

I M P O R T A N T :
*****Please leave ACCURATE feedback if things did not work out with us. Be honest - this will help you in your self-development while seeking therapy. If I am not immediately available, which has happened with me and other therapists, please leave accurate feedback as to why. Please try to refrain from "Counselor was not responsive." I will always communicate to you the reasons. Please consider the weight of your feedback and comments.*****

The way scheduling works with me:
-We write/message a little so I can read about your experience and what has brought you to counseling. This ensures me getting some background in case there is a no-show when we schedule a live chat.
-Please schedule sessions with me directly.
-My availability shifts due to my flexibility on a weekly basis.
-I have a FT job outside of this. Expect responses in the evenings, some lunch hours and occasional weekends; RESPONSES will be 1-2 business days unless you are a new subscriber. Those are also the times I am willing to set aside for sessions.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Therapist (LMHC) from Upstate New York.
I use a variety of treatment modalities, however, the ones I gravitate towards are Strength-Based Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing. My expertise is primarily in PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Depression, Anxiety and Addiction.
I enjoy life and spending time writing, seeing my family and friends, my 2 cats and cooking.

::KEEP IN MIND::

*Online therapy, like face to face therapy, is treatment given by a licensed clinician. Just like in an office setting, connection can often be made after more than 1-3 sessions or contact sessions.
*If I feel you are not a good fit, or you do not feel you are a good fit, we can address this together and I will make a recommendation and BetterHelp will also support this and provide you resources.
*Inappropriate and offensive comments or remarks are not tolerated by me, BetterHelp and other professionals. Please be mindful of typing out frustrations as online communications can often be misinterpreted.
*This is an asynchronous platform - messages are not done immediately like "texting". Messages are sent, as stated earlier, 1-2 business day.

Written by B.E. on May 30, 2019 after counseling with Nichole for 3 months on issues concerning depression, anger management, and bipolar disorder

Nichole is great! She incorporates her knowledge and compassion for people to make the best possible sessions. She has always been available to me and somehow senses when I need just a little extra help. Nichole makes it extremely easy to share thoughts and feelings without worrying about being judged. I love that she doesn’t tell me what to do but works with me to help me make positive decisions in dealing with my issues. I can’t say enough about her. I have been blessed to be matched with Nichole for every encounter I have had with her makes me be a little better each time. Thanks doesn’t seem to be enough but she isn’t here for that she truly makes you feel like it’s her privilege to help you.

Nichole is wonderful. Listens to my needs and helps me work out problems that I wouldn't be able to do alone.

Nichole is an amazing counselor. She has truly mastered the art and science of her field. She is an expert in mental health that can help you through. That is the key- she gives you the tools so you can keep helping yourself, while being there to support you.

Nichole is fast and caring and a great listener. I’ve only spoken to her via messages and have already received benefits for the time we spent together.

Nichole is extremely kind, easy to talk to, and knowledgable. She takes the time to listen and also returns with an extremely helpful analysis and tools to aid in my recovery. I'm very glad I got matched with her.

Nichole was an excellent support for me and really helped me out in a time of need. She was very responsive and understanding. I would recommend her highly to anyone looking for help
