Nicolle has been incredibly helpful and insightful after just two sessions. She doesn’t listen to respond; she truly listens and is able to understand what is actually being said. She offers great tools and resources, as well.

I instantly felt comfortable talking with Nicole. She listens and hears what I'm saying/feeling. I absolutely would refer her to family/friends.
