I have had three sessions so far with her and it has been very helpful.
She's very respectful, encouraging, and insightful. I've grown a lot under her guidance. I fully recommend her.
So far my correspondence with Nicole has been uplifting. I feel that my fears can be accomplished soon.
Nicole Crawford is an amazing person, and an amazing counsellor.
Excellent counseling session and counselor. Highly recommended.
Thus far, only two sessions in, I would say she’s a tremendous empath who listens with no prejudice and offers constructive, insightful feedback in a sensitive and caring fashion.
Nicole is currently helping me and has provided great techniques and advice. I feel her concern and I like her a lot.
She’s such an excellent therapist! I instantly felt better after our first call. Her tips were extremely helpful and exactly what I needed. I can’t wait to continue working with her.
I’ve had a few sessions with Nicole and have found her to be a healthy balance of being emotionally understanding and logical. She cares about your issue, takes you seriously, is very patient and listens. She is professional and provides plans of action to work towards. I look forward to further sessions and can say she is the reason why I’m staying on this app, opposed to seeing a therapist/psych in my home town.
