About me

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to read my profile.

My name is Nikkole Weiss and I have been a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) for 7 years. My family immigrated to the US from Ukraine when I was 7-years-old, and I learned English by watching Disney's Lion King on repeat, back when VHS tapes were cool. I have always been interested in personal development, positive psychology, and helping others ever since I can remember. I also really enjoy supporting our military and veteran community.

I graduated with a Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California in 2014, and for the past 7 years I've worked primary with Post 9/11 era Veterans. I've guided them through addressing stress, anxiety, and anger related to traumatic events. I'm trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI,) and I'm always learning more about how we can release the mental pressure of stress and anxiety, develop emotional mastery and self-leadership skills, and accomplish those big audacious goals that are both scary and exciting at the same time.

One of my most favorite quotes comes from the book Motivation Manifesto by Brendon Burchard. He says "the greatest of human freedoms, is the ability at any moment, to choose the color of our emotional sky." I know that sounds easier said than done, right? I know that making the decision to engage in therapy can be scary and overwhelming. Finding a therapist that you can really connect with is also very important to your success. You are the expert on your life, including your unique beliefs and values, and needs. My hope is that in working with me, you will feel supported to challenge thoughts that have kept you stuck, and empowered to become the very best version of yourself. I truly believe that the better it gets, the better it gets, and the best is yet to come!

If you are looking for a provider who has evening and weekend availability, I am usually on the BetterHelp platform from 6-8pm EST during the week and most Saturdays 10am-3pm EST.

I look forward to working with you!

Written on Nov 29, 2022 after therapy with Nikkole for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Nikkole is just what I have been looking for in a therapist. I have always wanted a therapist that gives me tools to handle daily stress and anxiety on my own. She has done just that. Nikkole has a way of putting things in a different perspective that I would have never been able to come to on my own without her help. She listens and offers real life examples to help assist with my talk therapy. Nikkole is very down to earth and helps create a comforting environment for talking about difficult things. Overall I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Nikkole and betterhelp.

Nikkole is fantastic, she helped me work on and change my negative perspective of every aspect of my life. She was patient with me, very empathetic and resourceful. In less than a year my life has changed for the better, I went from feeling like I was in the dark tired, and emotionally confused to becoming more confident of myself, connecting more with my loved ones, getting to know myself and what I wanted in my life and I learned to keep calm when there was uncertainty. I am forever grateful for Nikkole and everything she has help me with. I 100% recommend her.

Nikkole is a fantastic therapist and her advice has truly changed my life and helped me to get through a year with many difficult moments. I will take the lessons I’ve learned from her with me for a long time and I’m so grateful to work with her. She is truly phenomenal.

Nikkole is one of the few therapists who I could truly connect with in the sense that she gets on your level and works with you where you are at. She’s not judgmental but provides a steady hand in guiding you through the “whys”. She’s able to relate in a way that other therapists just haven’t been able to and you’ll be extremely lucky if she works with you. She’ll give you thoughtful worksheets and questions for you to work on and diligently checks in with you. So lucky to have connected with her!
