Nicole has been the best therapist. After 5 others, not all from better help, I was loosing hope and didn’t think therapy was the answer. Nicole has a way of getting me to open up without me noticing and then we are into another conversation that needed to happen. I feel confident in coming to her about any issues or “mistakes” I’ve made because she rolls with it and we work through it
