I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Illinois with nine years of experience working with people making change in their life. I have worked with people challenged by depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, and life changing situations. My approach is solution focused, client centered, and strengths based drawing heavily from Cognitive Behavioral Theory.
When working with clients I strive to make the therapy experience genuine, positive, respectful, and safe. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in doing great things and overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started! I am excited to meet you and work together to identify your goals and make plans to achieve them!

Nikki has been a breath of fresh air. I feel like she really cares and wants to help. But she does so in a gentle way. She lets me draw conclusions myself instead of just telling me what she thinks. But then she links it all together and it’s fulfilling. I deeply appreciate her and love our sessions.
