Nicole Reitsma

(LICSW, OSW-C)

About Me

As a clinical social worker at a metro based oncology and hematology clinic, my experience is specializing in work with individuals facing a life threatening illness. Working through adjustments to the diagnosis and the loss in multiple facets of life is difficult to do on your own, and often the individuals and families I work with feel that they are already putting too much of a burden on their loved ones to share some of their mental and emotional anguish. I am here to be with you through all that an illness or other major life change brings.

Nicole has mastered the most important aspect of her profession: asking the right questions. The work will be done by you, because it has to be, and she knows that better than any other therapist I’ve met with. You may wonder at first why she isn’t saying more or being more prescriptive, but you won’t be wondering for long.

I don't even know where to begin with Nicole as a counselor. Kind, attentive, offers great guidance.
Quite frankly, if it wasn't for Nicole I would have dropped out of betterhelp. I find it incredibly easy to open up to Nicole and no matter how I am feeling when I talk to her, by the end of our calls I am in much better spirits.
She checks in on me if she hasn't heard from me and just cares.
I am so thankful and grateful for Nicole and how much she has helped me. Not sure I could have made it through the summer without her in my corner.
Thank you so much Nicole and thank you Betterhelp for matching her to me.

Nicole was exactly what I needed in a mental health provider. She is kind and encouraging, challenges me to think beyond a situation and provides me with the right amount of encouragement, support, and resources that require me to act and change for the better without becoming overwhelmed in the process. I’ve started to find confidence in myself. I’ve been able to challenge my self destructive thinking and change it for personal growth. This wouldn’t have been possible without all of Nicole’s help and expertise. She’s given me hope for a better tomorrow and a brighter future!

I've only been working with Nicole for a few weeks but I'm so happy to have found her! She's attentive, prompt, and gets me thinking! We have great conversions that bring light to thoughts and feelings I didn't know I had. Having someone impartial to work through life with and give feedback is an essential need I've been missing. I will definitely continue working with her to understand myself better and to reach my goals.

I have had a great experience so far. She has been able to get me to think about things in ways I have never thought of before and it has really helped me work through some tough emotions.
