Hello and welcome to my profile! My name is Nicole Haggerty. First and foremost I am so glad that you have chosen to seek therapy. It's never an easy step to take, but you've done it and I hope that I can be here to help provide you the support and comfort you need as you work towards a better you and embark on your journey of healing.
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. I have worked in the area of behavioral health since 2009. I began my career at a local Community Mental Health Center providing supportive counseling services, case management services, and crisis stabilization and intervention. In 2015 I graduated from West Virginia University with my Masters Degree in Social Work, shortly after I obtained my graduate license and began my journey providing therapy services. In 2016 I resigned my position at the CMHC and began working for a local Federally Qualified Health Center as a behavioral health therapist, and this is where I remain today. I finished my supervision in 2017 and obtained my independent clinical license at that time. Throughout my career, I have provided services to all ages. I have worked with individuals with depression, anxiety, relationship/marital issues, addictions, anger management, bipolar disorder, and trauma.
I use a person-centered approach in treatment. This means I begin where you are and tailor the treatment approach to your needs while being sensitive to how your individual identities and lifestyle choices impact your experience. I primarily use evidence based techniques including cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused counseling. I truly believe that the most important part of a persons treatment is the therapeutic relationship that you build with your therapist. Knowing that you are able to talk to someone regarding your struggles without the fear of judgement, but still being able to have someone to be direct in an appropriate and professional manner is very comforting for many people.
I am currently only offering messaging and live chat. A majority of my availability is in the evenings and on the weekends but I check messages at least once during each weekday.
I know and understand how very difficult it can be to find a therapist that you are comfortable with. I would be honored to work with you and assist you through your current struggles!
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Parenting issues, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, ADHD
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy

Hi, Judy here! I am very pleased with the help I got from therapy! My therapist was absolutely amazing. I went from being stuck in my home to, being a High school graduate, got my license and working a full time job. I’m doing more as a mother and getting out with my son more then I ever have! So thankful for the experience I have gotten from Nicole! Great advice and tips!
