About Me

Hello! My name is Nicole - I am a licensed clinical social worker located in central maine. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, parenting/family problems, OCD, PTSD, attachment issues, depression and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical or sexual trauma and/or emotional abuse. Active Military and Military Veterans are welcome; I was in the army reserve for 8 years and served a tour of duty in Iraq in 2003-2004.

My counseling style is warm but direct and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, dignity and compassion. I believe that doing activities in nature can have a positive impact on self-esteem, coping with every day life, and processing difficult experiences. I hope to share this with my clients and inspire them to get outside and enjoy life to it's fullest. 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.

Nicole is amazing! She listens and guides me in the direction i need to find the "whys". She tells me when to slow down, and how to think outside of the box. I find a goid connection with her.
