Nick is very kind and approachable! I have never done any type of therapy and this is better than I expected! Nick is very knowledgeable in his field and he always seems to understand how to dissect my thoughts and emotions in a way that I am able to see them from a different point of view. I am excited to continue my CBT therapy with him!

Nick has been a great counselor! He’s the first to actually listen and understand where I’m coming from, versus be told to be part of a ‘group think’ mindset. He is helping me, become a better version of me as I battle my problems.
