LPC

About Me

Hi my name is Nick and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor. My approach to therapy is to meet you where you are. I'm not the expert on all things, especially you. I want to work with you to find your strengths and use your expertise in yourself to find answers to the questions you have. My job isn't to judge and give advice, it's to help you find your own path to successful change.
I have been an LPC for 6 years, working with adults, teens, and children. My focus in therapy is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Client-centered treatment modalities. I hope to help you discover in yourself the tools to change your thoughts, feelings and behaviors to bring better consequences to your life in a comfortable environment.
Parents, I am trained in play therapy and Child Parent Relationship Therapy. Using this modality, I can teach you how to use tools in play therapy to connect with your child on a deeper level using play, the child's natural language, as a bridge. I have experience working with children with ADHD as well as other disorders.
I am a non-judgmental counselor when it comes to medical marijuana, and understand the benefits this and other medications in coordination with counseling and coping strategies can create an environment of personal growth and positive change.

I am glad to be back using Nick as my therapist

Written by J.O. on Jul 26, 2022 after therapy with Nick for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and adhd

Nick is phenomenal!!!
He was able to help me dig deeper within myself to really find the roots of the things I want to work on and be better about. He really listens and I look forward to talking to him weekly because he makes it feel like I'm talking to my best friend and not my therapist. 11/10 all day for this gentleman!!

Nick is a wonderful therapist who tailors therapy to what you need and what works for you and doesn't not waste time on things that you say do not work on you.

Nick Livingston does an incredible job of giving perspective and truly listening and understanding. He is both professional and relatable which is exactly the combination you would want while seeking help!

Written by K.A. on Mar 27, 2022 after therapy with Nick for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

I’m so grateful to have had Nick as a counselor. He is kind and thoughtful, with a great sense of humor that makes uncomfortable topics easy to talk about. He remembers every detail I tell him, even if I only mentioned it once and it’s been weeks—which is incredible, given how many clients I’m sure he has. He always checks in throughout the week and responds with lightning speed. He also cares enough to be honest, and never sugarcoats. I don’t think I could have progressed this much with anyone else. He’s amazing.

Nick has been an amazing therapist. He challenges my thinking while at the same time encouraging me to keep doing the work. I feel supported, challenged and grateful that BetterHelp connected me to him.

Written by M.A. on Mar 17, 2022 after therapy with Nick for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, and anger management

Nick helped me greatly throughout my therapy process. I started with him last summer feeling completely lost not knowing what my next move would be after college. He was very personable and always allowed me to express what I felt needed to be said. He helped me repair some family relationships along with helping me have more confidence and realizing that I have something to look forward to. If I didn't have to the opportunity to have these sessions with Nick I really don't know what things would look like for me right now. Highly recommend him for anyone that feels the need to talk to someone.

I had never done any type of therapy before, so I was a little apprehensive at first, but after talking some to Nick I feel a lot more comfortable with the idea of therapy. Nick is a great listener, very down to earth and very understanding. He does his best to try to understand any issues at hand. He will say statements and ask questions that are actually helpful in helping me unravel and understand my issues better.

I have never had a counselor as great as Nick. He’s helped me gain confidence in myself, and in my relationships in life. He’s taught me things about myself that I would’ve never learned on my own. I can’t thank him enough for the work he puts in.

Written by D.A. on May 10, 2021 after therapy with Nick for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and grief

Nick has been extremely understanding of my issues and has been very helpful in giving me tools and new skills to work through trauma and everyday problems. Talking with him has already greatly helped me understand my problems better and start healing and moving forward. He really listens and gives advice that is truly beneficial and personable. I never thought I would look forward to therapy/counseling but I am happy with what I have already accomplished in a short amount of time and look forward to more progress in the future.

Nick is an excellent therapist. Thoughtful, caring, and attentive.

Written by L.E. on May 08, 2021 after therapy with Nick for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, and adhd

Initially I was concerned because I was being paired with a Male counselor, I did not select preferences. I was upfront about my reservations via messaging before our initial session and he was very understanding that at any point in time I have the option to switch counselors I don't owe him anything. His specialities listed included Children therapy, ADHD, and many others but not what i thought applied to me with the exception of ADD. He's helping me become more self aware, people's feelings are their own. It's not my responsibility to make them happy and I've always known this but he's helped me understamd why I felt like i needed to be the fixer. Why i avoid my feelings because helping people with their's has just seemed easier even though it could be taxing on my relationships at home. I also really wanted tools to manage anxiety and my ADD and hes givem me resources to help so i didn't have to utilize medicine. DISCLAIMER: I've only been working with Mr.Livingston for about 3 weeks and the entire time he's been attentive and helpful. I feel like my life is getting Better because of his Help.

Work with me!
