About Me

My name is Nicole Bakewell and I was born in New York City but grew up most of my life in the Pocono’s. I attended Sussex County Community College where I graduated in May 2010 with my Associates of Sciences in Psychology, with a concentration in Child and Adolescent Therapies. I attended Southern New Hampshire University where I graduated in May 2012 with my Bachelors Degree in Psychology with a concentration of Child and Adolescent Development and Psychology. After graduating I moved to Florida where I received my Masters in General Mental Health Counseling in September 2016 from Capella University.

I have worked with Traumatic Brain Injuries, children, couples, families and addictions for over 10 years in the Community Mental Health Setting as a Behavioral/Mental Health Technician, Targeted Case Manager, Master Level Practitioner, Licensed Mental Health Counselor and now a National Certified Counselor. I have experience in treating Addictions, Trauma, Veteran’s, Anxiety, Depression, Anger Management, Family Conflict, Parenting Issues (to include Dependency involvement), coping with grief, and more.

I use a Cognitive Behavioral Approach, Solution-Focused, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to help my client reach their life goals and overcome the challenges they may face in their life. These approaches are described as; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is about how our thoughts, feelings and behaviors are connected and how they affect our daily lives. Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT) is a goal-directed collaborative approach that focuses on the present and future to help an individual reach their goals. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is about learning new skills to manage painful emotions and decrease conflict in relationships. I provide a warm, caring, non-judgmental approach that is dedicated to helping you overcome life’s challenges. I look forward to learning more about you and helping you overcome any difficulties you may be facing in life.

I love that she gives me space to speak and asks great questions. I don't feel judged or unheard. I have never enjoyed talking about my feelings this much.

Nicole has been very helpful to me, she uses techniques that I've used before with other therapists and I'm finding her sessions to be so helpful.

I have tried a couple different therapists, and Nicole is the only one I’ve ever felt has really “clicked”. She listens to me, understands my concerns, voices her opinions, but most importantly never ever makes me feel stupid or silly for anything I’m ever feeling. She is a god send and I would recommend her to anyone.

So far, Nicole has really been a help to me. It feels nice speaking to someone that understands me and is willing to help me find a resolution.

Nicole is patient and listens. After one session I already seemed to have a gained a lot of confident in myself which is my ultimate goal. What’s most important is my mind is clear and calm. The questions she asked me on my first session helped me to personally overcome any issues I may come across throughout my day.

I have had one video call and a good few emails with Nicole. She listened and understood what was happening for me during our first session and we discussed areas I needed help with and agreed on a weekly session to put the plan into a cation. I feel supported and respected by Nicole and would definitely recommend her to a friend.
Kindest regards
