About Me

I am licensed clinical social worker in Illinois with 7 years of experience working as a psychocounselor and school social worker. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, grief. I also helped persons with autism spectrum disorder and ADHD. I am extremely open and sensitive to issues around race, systemic racisms and cultural issues.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines humanistic, motivational interviewing and psychodynamic 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!

Written by M.B. on Oct 26, 2021 after therapy with Nicole for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, bipolar disorder, coaching, and adhd

Nicole is by far the best therapist I’ve ever had in my life. She is definitely an active listener, and practices a form of existential therapy where she is along for the ride with you. She always sweetly challenged me and comforted me in the exact right ways. We did a deep diveInto a past relationship of mine that really helped me heal from the trauma of it. I hope we can work together again in the future.

Nicole Maronde is very nice and easy to talk to. I feel like I lucked out in terms of therapist because I needed someone who is an active listener and who challenges me to think outside the box. I never felt more heard in my life. I highly recommend.

I’ve been working with Nicole for about five months now and I couldn’t be more grateful for her. She’s compassionate, supportive, and understanding. I look forward to our sessions every week, even though sometimes they can be challenging. I’m proud of the growth I’ve experienced in these five months and her support throughout my process has been invaluable.

Nicole has been amazing in the time since we’ve started sessions. I feel like we’ve really clicked, and I’ve genuinely appreciated all of her advice and expertise.
