About Me

Hello, I am Nicole Porter, an experienced Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over a decade of experience. I will work with you to create a non-judgmental and empowering space where you can bring your entire self into the room in order to allow healing. The foundation of my work is to build a strong and trusting therapeutic relationship with individuals, couples and families across the lifespan. I combine Person-Centered, Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioral & Acceptance Commitment therapy modalities to efficiently address symptoms (either on a short-term or long-term basis) & meet your needs or goals. Whether you are in pursuit of growth and change.

Whether you are in pursuit of growth and change or having difficulty coping with chronic psychological, social or physical issues; seeking psychotherapy may be your first step to achieving purpose, resilience, and a better quality of life. I work with clients to identify areas of opportunity, foster change, cope with symptoms, and highlight strengths.

There are many factors that can suggest treatment needs, including: •history of trauma (sexual/ physical/ emotional, abandonment, bullying, domestic violence, financial abuse, etc)•racial identity•medical complications (terminal illness, chronic, or pain),•bereavement, grief/loss, •mood and anxiety disorders •parenting, family and intimate relationships.

I look forward to being able to support you!

I felt very open and comfortable with Nicole in our first session. She is relatable and respectful. I love that she gives examples from her own life and gives action steps at the end of each session.
