Hello my name is Nikki and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado. I have a B.S in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Education from Colorado State University, as well as hundreds of hours of continuing education.
I have worked in the field of counseling for the over 23 years. I started working in the field of substance abuse and domestic violence and then went on to get my master's degree in Education and Human Resources. I have been providing services for individuals, families and kids of all ages. I have experience working with parents who are struggling with extreme behaviors with their children, trauma, addictions, anxiety, depression and people who are seeking career transitions. I use a client centered approach and focus on your treatment goals using your individual strengths to help you accomplish your goals. I enjoy working with a diverse population of adults from all ages.
I am married and a mother to two very amazing kids. I have two cats a dog so my house is always busy. My family loves adventures so we spend most of our summers traveling. I think it is important for my kids to grow up learning about other cultures and I want to give them experiences that last a lifetime.
Asking for help is never easy and I feel truly honored when individuals trust me to guide them in their time of need. I am very open, non-judgmental, compassionate and easy to talk to. I look forward to the opportunity to work together.

Nikki has been a wonderful support system for me in a time where there have been few options. She shared resources and ideas that helped me reshape my thinking as well as offered an unbiased ear so that I could safely vent and get to the bottom of the issues I have been struggling with. I was skeptical in the beginning, meeting a counselor online, but it has helped me be more thoughtful leading into our discussions which in turn has meant our sessions are much more valuable and constructive. I very much appreciate Nikki's help and would recommend both her and Better Help.

Nikki has been very responsive even when I have not reciprocated, which makes me feel like I have her full support at all times. Her advice is very clear and intelligent. I feel more empowered reading her messages. She’s giving me excellent ideas to process.
