I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor licensed in Idaho with over 30 years of experience working as a Clinical therapist, Mental Health therapist, substance use therapist, Trauma professional, EMDR certified, Havening trained, and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, Autism, trauma, military challenges and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is Client Centered, 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, Dialectic Behavioral, Acceptance Based, IFS, EMDR, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. 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.
I look forward to working with you!

She is great. Try's to get to the heart of the issue, and unlike therapist in the past that I had, she actually encourages positive change.

Nicole is knowledgable with all the advice she gives me and within 3 weeks she has made a huge impact in my confidence and self awareness. She's truly a gem and I repsect her greatly as a person.
