Nickia is a great therapist that takes the time to understand my needs. I started therapy as a way to help after I loss my sister but now it has evolves into so much more. She helps me find confidence and establish goals for the life I deserve to live. She is flexible in here meeting times and offers different ways to contact her. I don't feel any sort of judgement in my sessions and really feel like I can open up to her about all sorts of things. She fosters a positive and fun environment. I started out skeptical of therapy at first but now I see it as a way to connect with someone who shares a different perspective. I truly do love having Nickia as my therapist.

Ms. Nickia Miller is a lovely sweet therapist. I have to say I find her smile quite refreshing, which may be an odd comment to make, but when I see so many unhappy faces, it really is nice to be met with a welcoming face. She listens and works with you, coming up with ideas to help you make headway on your healing journey. I have searched high and low for a therapist who made me feel like they cared and took an active roll in not only listening to me but helping and explaining things I don't understand too. I feel like there is so much I still don't understand and am embarrassed to ask about. But not around Nickia, she encourages me, I know she'll be the same for you. She is welcoming and understanding. And everything I could have asked for in a therapist. Or rather was hoping for. I feel comforted and seen. She reminds me I am worth it. Once again, I couldn't recommend her more.

Ms Nickia is a wonderful therapist. She seems to know just what to say so that I feel heard and can reframe my perception of unpleasant thoughts and memories. I feel like I can move through life and handle myself and others in a more healthy, realistic way. I’ve started painting again, a favorite activity that I thought might be lost to depression. Much gratitude for this special human being!

Nickia Miller is attentive and intrigued by her patients. She is well rounded and able to adapt to random changes in patient’s moods. I’ve already recommended her to a few of my friends. She’s very good at making me feel comfortable and open to talking about my problems.
