Nikki has been a great therapist to work with. She listens to me, pays attention to details, and really makes me feel like I matter. She provides insightful responses and reflections and tools to help manage my anxiety. I feels really comfortable talking to her and am grateful to have her as my therapist.

Nikki is amazing. She made me feel very comfortable right from the beginning. I was very nervous about the video calls, I always have been. But immediately it felt just like a conversation with a friend who wanted to listen. She gives me tips and methods to manage my bipolar better, she also responds to messages quick. Very happy with her very thankful
