About me

Greetings! I'm Nikki and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social worker with over 5 years of counseling experience. I work with clients through a holistic approach, considering their past and current circumstances to determine patterns and look for ways to interrupt behavior. I believe in taking a client centered approached, allowing clients to determine the trajectory and desired outcome of services. I recognize that mental illness does not exist in a vacuum and it's important to look at societal and cultural influences, not just focus on the presenting symptoms.

I have experience working with mood disorders, anxiety, and polyamorous/ENM and kinky clients. I approach situations with a curious mindset and look for realistic solutions that meet your needs and lifestyle.

I'm excited to meet you and work together on your self-identified goals.

Nikki is amazing! She is so thoughtful and understanding. I know I can tell her anything and it’s a very safe understanding place.

Nikki always responds in a short amount of time to my very long responses. I like that she validates my thoughts and feelings while still challenging me to look from other perspectives as well. She offers exercises and resources to help me out and listens to my feedback on them.

Nikki is absolutely amazing. She responds faster than I thought she would. Sets the right expectations for me. She has helped me start believing in myself again, feeling stronger mentally, and just have a better outlook with life. She’s amazing!

Nikki has been a really great support. They are highly resourced, kind, compassionate, and a good communicator. They've respected my identities, worldview, and values. I appreciate the ways they integrate understanding of mental health impacts of oppression under capitalism.

Work with me!
