I am a licensed counselor in both Montana and Colorado. I graduated from Montana State University in 2008 with a masters degree in Marriage and Family Counseling. I have been providing therapy services for over 10 years and have experience in multiple settings. While much of my experience has been with kids and young adults, I also have a great deal of experience in family therapy, as well as providing parents support and coaching through difficult situations. I also have a great deal of experience in helping those going through transitions including, but not limited to, grief and loss, divorce, changes in careers, and children going off to college. I am also experienced in working with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, and anger management issues. I also have a background in working with survivors of abuse and other traumatic events.
My counseling style is very open, meeting people where they are at. Therapy can be very difficult and people entering therapy may feel very vulnerable. Thus, I like to try to help my clients feel comfortable and supported throughout the process. Compassion and sensitivity are key to my counseling style and I strive to ensure that my clients feel accepted throughout the counseling process. My counseling approach is a combination of cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, person-centered, and reality-based therapy. I often adjust my counseling style to fit each individual, their therapy goals, and current needs.
It takes a great deal of bravery to engage in the self-exploration process and make the changes needed to become the best version of you that you can be. If you are ready to start this process, I would love to be able to support and assist you in your journey to self-discovery, realization, and resiliency.

Nicole is amazing! She has helped me so much with my mental health and I am insanely grateful!
Nicole has been a great help for me. I think she is an amazing therapist and she really cares about you. She is easy to talk to, she listens and she knows how to find solutions. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Nicole has been monumental in my healing journey. She has been there for me and guided me through rough spots to bring clarity and understanding to subjects I wasn't able to tackle on my own. She is a skilled counselor and makes time for me when I need it.
Nicole has been a great help to me after one of the hardest experiences of my life. She has been a source of practical advice in the best possible way, I can say without a doubt that I am in a better frame of mind because of my talks with her.

Nicole is great. She is incredibly relatable, friendly, and kind. I have only been working with her for a few weeks now and she’s been so helpful. 10 out of 10 would recommend!!
She is amazing and really easy to talk to and communicate with
At first, I was a bit skeptical about this online counseling process, but Nicole could not have put me any more at ease. We corresponded a tad before our first phone-session, but it was like talking to an old friend who I haven't spoken to in years. Yes, Nicole is THAT welcoming! She had that immediate rapport that totally made me feel comfortable. Also, she doesn't have the "judgy" tone in her voice that others do. I look forward to our weekly sessions.
Nicole is kind and thoughtful. She helps me stay on track with my highest priorities.
I've referred a few folks to BetterHelp already based on my experience with Nicole. She has been very supportive and understanding as I navigate challenging times and try to learn self care. I am grateful for the flexibility and ease of access to great treatment!

I really enjoy working with Nicole, she has a wonderful ability to ask me the questions that help me to see the issues I’m facing in my life in a different light. That I’m able to stop and think about healthy ways to approach hard things in my life. My confidence is growing everyday! I’m very thankful for her helping me through my journey!
Nicole is caring and knowledgeable. She offers solutions and opportunities, in addition to really hearing what it is that you are going through.
I am so grateful to have been paired with Nicole. She is fantastic! We have only been working together for a couple of weeks and I feel so much support already. I am confident we are on the right path. She has great ideas and suggestions and truly hears me.
Nicole has helped me so much. Just having someone to help me process when things are stressful is really awesome.
Nicole has been so helpful through her compassionate listening, expertise and coping techniques. She helped me out of a very rough patch and continues to support me in my process. She is very kind and attentionate, and made me believe/understand that things will indeed get better. I owe a lot to her, and would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone seeking a bit of light in their darker days. I am very grateful for her.
Very caring and professional. She replies to my messages quite regularly and balances both the listening and advice giving aspects of counseling well.
Nicole is really helpful and smart.
Nicole is incredibly understanding and kind. We've only worked together for a little while now, but she's been supporting and empathic from the very first second. She encourages and reassures me, which has been a great help.
I have nothing but praise for Nicole, her methods and grasp of what I need. Nicole has been extremely flexible in the delivery, being very forgiving when i get the time differences a little mixed up. It takes a very talented and knowledgable person to have such a huge impact across the world. Advice I have used with immediate effect, stopping a negative pathway in their tracks. I feel like I can unpack and sort out some pretty heavy issues, knowing Nicole will treat them and myself with respect and care.
She is very kind and responsible and even though our time has been very short she has helped me tremendously.
