My name is Nichole Garcia and I am a licensed masters social worker, LMSW. I have been working in the field for about 11 years and started out working with children and teens at a residential shelter in 2012. I also have experience working with adults with bipolar disorder, anger issues, trauma and abuse, personality disorders, ADHD, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, PTSD, the LGBTQ population, relationship issues, and many more. I have worked with those adults since 2017 at a community mental health agency (CMH). While working at a CMH, I have gained knowledge in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) where I have had the privilege to attend multiple trainings in DBT and prolonged exposure. I also have been able to attend trainings for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), eating disorders, and substance use disorders.
I graduated at Wayne State University in 2012 with my Bachelors in Social Work and then in 2013 I enrolled in a 10 month accelerated masters program where I was able to obtain my Masters in Social Work. While attending college, I completed multiple internships working at homeless shelters, residential facilities, and the psychiatric ward.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I am an open person and believe transparency is very important in a relationship. So as long as we can be honest with eachother, it will be a great therapeutic relationship. I am very passionate about my work. I love learning about my clients and ways we can work together to help you. I look forward to working with you and will make it an empathetic, genuine experience. Talk to you soon!

Nichole is amazing. I was wary about trying therapy at first, almost a year ago. But she has been nothing but a fantastic support. She has been my rock, and then went on to help me find my own rock, so to speak :) Nichole has helped me find my real self, and she's given me loads of tools to help me be the best version of myself that I can be. I truly hope that should I ever need to use the service again, I can be paired with her once more. Thank you so much Nichole, for everything. :)

I’m a bit shocked by Nicholes ability to read me through text - in a handful of sessions she has said things that it took other therapists years to get to. Amazed that I’m getting really productive support via text.

Dr Garcia is very competent and her method of therapy is really good for me. She lets me talk and when she replies she always says something insightful and shows me perspectives I wouldn't have considered on my own. I'm happy of our work together right now

I was nervous to try therapy for the first time. Nicole made me feel so comfortable from the beginning, she is very easy to talk to. She always checks in on me and responds quickly to my messages. She is very compassionate and non judgemental. She has provided me with a lot of coping skills, and has made me feel very supported. I highly recommend her!

Wonderful person, she helped me when I was at my lowest and brought me back to starting to feel myself again. I can't think of a better person to talk to when I am having a bad day and recommended many things for me to do, including establishing a support system and coping skills. Thanks for everything!

Nichole is great! Although it’s only been a month, I can tell a huge difference in myself and the way I interact with others. She completely understood everything I talked about and clearly cared about my overall improvement by setting up worksheets that relate to my issues and conflicts I will recommend her to any and everyone who will listen. I’m very grateful to have worked with her.
