About Me

Hello there, welcome to Better Help!

My name is Nicole, and I’m a licensed Social Worker and therapist. I'm sorry you are having a tough time right now, but I'm really glad you are reaching out. I’m here to help you work on the struggles you are facing; and offer you a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings. I would like to get to know you better and learn more about what you are struggling with so I can offer you some support and tools to get through this hard time.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Michigan. I earned a Bachelor of Psychology at Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, MI and a Masters of Social Work at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. I worked within Community Mental Health for 8 years, specializing in providing therapy to children and adults with Developmental Disabilities. While there, I also provided therapy to client's family members (individual, couples, and family therapy) in regards to depression, anxiety, self-esteem, grief and loss, parenting and coping with life changes.

I then went on to work in the school system where I was a School Social Worker for 5 years before becoming the Behavior Specialist for the school district. Within this role, I consult with staff regarding most severe behavioral concerns. I provide support to staff and families by providing additional strategies to work with children of all ages.

My counseling style is Person-centered, strength based and empowering. I understand that we all come to the table with our own unique challenges and strengths, and I strive to meet you where you are. I tailor sessions to meet your individual need with the understanding that you are the expert of your life.

In addition to individual therapy, my goal is to help help people involved in a romantic relationship gain insight into their relationship, resolve conflict, and improve communication.

I utilize various treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused techniques. Reaching out for Therapy is a difficult choice and I am so glad you did. I look forward to creating a strong therapeutic rapport and working together to achieve your desired goals.

Nicole is an amazing therapist and an even more amazing listener. I always feel understood and listened to when we have our sessions. She always takes the time to reach out to me if I’ve been silent for a few days which helps remind me to take care of myself when life gets hectic. She’s an amazing therapist and I can’t thank her enough

Nicole is absolutely amazing. She's understanding, patient, and goes the extra mile to make me comfortable and create session times that work well with my schedule. I have started to heal in ways I never thought possible. I'm starting to understand myself more, and make major changes in my life with Nicole assisting me. She's a true blessing.

I have been working with Nicole for over a year and during that time my needs have varied and changed.

Nicole is very relatable as a therapist. I appreciate how quickly she responds to messages. Online therapy was new for me in that I’ve never messaged back and forth with a therapist before - but rather always met face-to-face - and this experience has been overwhelmingly positive.

I find her so so helpful and she gets me to do things in a way where I don't feel pushed or told what to do. She has got me out of bed on very dark days that I have never been able to do before. She gives me a variety of ways to deal with things and makes me feel so heard. I have so much appreciation for her and without her I know I would be in a different place to what I am now.

Nicole is great! She understood each one of my concerns and was always understanding. She gave some really good strategies to overcoming them and helped guide me through the entire way .

Written by J.E. on Sep 04, 2021 after therapy with Nicole for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

The best thing about having Nicole as a counsellor is the sense of security she was able to provide me with. Experiencing a panic attack and post attack anxieties meant I need more constant check in, advise and support. Nicole was able to check in with my twice a day on average and that was able to make feel like I’m not alone. Her responsiveness calms me and not forgetting how easy it is to schedule live sessions with her. Of course due to our time difference, I can’t expect her to be around exactly when I needed her. Overall, she’s been really great.
