I am a licensed professional counselor licensed in South Carolina and Virginia with 4 years of experience working as an individual and family counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, PTSD, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is warm, friendly, and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, mindfulness, play therapy, and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I am here to support, encourage, and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Nicole is real, relatable, attentive, smart and provides insights and recommendations that make sense and are applicable to the situation. Working remotely makes no difference. Nicole's presence is easy to feel, she picks up on my vibe as if we were sitting across from one another.
