I am a social worker independently licensed in Ohio. I have more then 6 years working with folks in various roles, and have worked with people facing a wide range of challenges, including grief, anxiety and panic attacks, situational or workplace stressors, trauma and family of origin concerns, relationship issues and parenting concerns. I have also helped many people learn to manage chronic health conditions, such as chronic pain or diabetes, and cope with challenging diagnoses for both themselves and their loved ones.
My style is warm and very collaborative, and I see the therapeutic relationship as a two-way street. I believe everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity, with sensitivity to culture, background and experiences. I try to avoid labels when possible. My approach is trauma informed, client-centered, and combines acceptance and commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, and elements of cognitive behavioral therapist. I also have experience using sensory experiences to help manage anxiety, traumas and stressors. We will work together to create a treatment plan that addresses and supports your unique needs and goals.
Taking the first steps towards happiness, change and healing takes courage, and I am so glad you're here. If you're ready to begin, I would be delighted to support you on that journey. I'm looking forward to meeting you!

Nicolette is a great balance of approachable and professional. I feel at ease telling her my problems that I would otherwise feel judged for. I can tell that even when she doesn’t share the same opinion as me, she champions for my position, and rights the ship when I have an issues that need addressed in a more productive way. My mental health has improved immensely since working with Nicolette and I would recommend her to anyone!

Nicolette is a great listener and is able to identify core issues. She communicates warmly, and I do feel that each session is beneficial. She is solution-focused but not judging. I strongly recommend that you work with her.
