Hello! I am a Licensed Professional counselor in the state of Missouri with over 10 years of experience. I I feel honored to be able to walk with people through some of their most difficult times and help them find hope and healing in their lives, which may have felt impossible at the start.
My approach to counseling is to create an atmosphere where people feel comfortable enough to be genuinely known, safe enough for honest exploration, and supported enough to take new steps. I am a person dedicated to Christian faith and committed to helping each person find the wholeness and healing they desire. I glean from several counseling theories to tailor an approach that works best for you.
I have worked with individuals and families facing a variety of challenges such as depression and anxiety, relational and communication difficulties, trauma and abuse, grief and loss, marital and parenting struggles, and many other life situations causing people to feel stuck or empty.
Taking the step to try counseling requires a lot of courage, and I appreciate your consideration in allowing me to walk alongside you toward the change you desire.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Compassion fatigue
Clinical approaches: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), Existential Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy

Nicole has been amazing. I don't know how and when it happened but my life has changed for the better. Just showing up everyweek. The good days and the bad. She listens in a way that makes you feel heard. She identifies the problem and helps you to figure it out yourself. She has empowered me in setting boundaries and accepting myself the good and the bad. She doesn't talk at you or give you advice. She guides you in making changes you feel comfortable with at the time and all the small changes add up. Thank you so much! Life actually feels worth living now

I joined Betterhelp knowing that I wanted to find a connection with a professional who I could open up to and who would help guide me through life changes. Nicole has been an incredible resource to rely on and always has very thoughtful commentary. I would highly recommend Nicole, as she has been a constant for me during some major life changes.
