There is nothing better than being able to let go, and Nicole really helped me let go of some troubling events. She suggest some things that really switched my point of view on relationships. Romantic and non-romantic. I can’t recommend Nicole enough and this was more than worth it. Thank you so much for everything.

I want everyone in my life to be able to talk to her! She is so amazing and I know I am going to make so much progress working with her. I'm so glad the app matched us

Nicole has really helped me & given me the tools to cope with my anxiety & depression. She makes me feel normal, and that my feelings are valid. I feel like I can talk to her about anything with no judgement, and it's nice to get everything off of my chest & hear her perspective on the situation since my thoughts are sometimes very irrational. She also takes the time to understand what's going on in my life, and helps me work through it to find a solution. The documents she has provided me has helped me challenge my thoughts, and give me better ways to deal with stressful things going on in my life. I would 100% recommend her to anyone I know that is in need of the same help that I have received so far.

Nicole is 10’s across the board. She has been very accepting, supportive and responsive. I’ve never had counseling before and so far this has been extremely helpful and invaluable.
