About me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in Florida with nearly 20 years of experience working as a counselor/therapist, behavior coach and case management. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, co- occurring disorders and chronic illness. I also helped many people who have experienced concerns with life transitions.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution focused, motivational intervention and client centered. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

After working with BetterHelp for some time, I wanted to highlight a few things about my practice so you the consumer can make an informed decision before selecting me as your counselor.
1- My hours are evenings and weekend mornings
2-I'm available for live chat, phone and video.

Please keep in mind, there may be times of delay for reply (in session or after hours) however I will respond as soon as possible. Also the initial chat is to establish appointment needs and or clarify needs and wants from the platform.

I'm here to answer any questions that you may have.
I look forward to working with you!

In the brief time that she has been my counselor, Nicole has been very understanding and a great listener towards my concerns. She went out of her way to find me additional resources for help and checked on me frequently to see my progress.
