My name is Nichole Garcia and I am a licensed masters social worker, LMSW. I have been working in the field for about 7 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 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.
She's amazing, she checks on me very often and she's always available for anything. I feel very safe to talk to her and she's teaching me a lot of coping skills to help me in this journey. I highly recommend her as she's super professional and takes her job seriously.
Nichole is wonderful!
