We only spoke once, but so far I am impressed and look forward to pour future sessions.

Nicole has helped me immensely already even though we’ve only had a few sessions so far. Not only is Nicole easy to speak with, she is also engaged and thoughtful. I appreciate how Nicole asks clarifying questions to ensure her understanding of the issue is correct. Nicole provides insightful feedback and assigns relevant “homework”. Most of all, Nicole provides a safe space for me at a time in my life that I really need it.
