I hold a Masters Degree in Science in Counseling and Psychology from Troy University; a Bachelor of Arts Psychology from the University of West Florida; and an Associate in Arts with a focus in Mental Health. I have been in the field of mental health since 2009 and licensed since 2013. Therapeutic theories that I use are that of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy as the mainstay of my practice. I am well versed in Existential Therapy and use it to help those dealing with grief and dying. My overall therapeutic attitude of therapy is that of warm and unconditional regard of Person-Centered Therapy to provide excellent care for my clients. I have worked in addictions therapy, family therapy, adult individual therapy, youth therapy, group therapy, and worked in correctional institutions with youth and adults. I have had success in helping people to find their self-potential and realize their inner power. Unlocking your potential and inner power helps people to see that they can overcome many of life's problems and relieve many symptoms of mental health diagnoses.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Samuel Nichols. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Samuel has been a great help in helping me to help myself! I've been in therapy on a few occasions before however this year I have developed more skills to help me with everyday life and this is testament to Samuel's skills and also ability to read and understand me. Really appreciate the help and guidance.
I've had two sessions with Samuel and already feel comfortable and safe. He's helped me harness my anger and peace.
Samuel is a fantastic and supportive therapist! I appreciate his ability to be direct while also being kind and compassionate. He’s very relatable!
Great therapist. A wealth of experience and able to utilize it to help find the best way to help you. Id recommend him to anyone.
Sam is a great help to me and keep me accountable
I’ve had the most transformational sessions with Mr. Nichols, he really gave me a better perspective on life. He didn’t just feel like a person doing his job for the pay. He counseled me with passion, he shared similar experiences. Simply put he feels like a real friend. I never opened up to anyone as much as I did with Mr. Nichols because our interactions felt 100% authentic. I thank him a lot for everything he has told me. He gave me a new look at life. He’s as real as it gets. I look forward to every session.
Sam is a blessing. Regular guy you can speak to on multiple levels and areas. Every now and then you find a great one! Such a blessing.
I have spent 3 months with Samuel, and it was a great experience a real eyes opener as he can give you a different perspective to consider and change the way you think about yourself and your life. Thank you Mr. Samuel for your efforts and guidance it shall be always appreciated.
Sam is amazing!
So far I have found my sessions with Samuel very helpful and enlightening. He has a way of helping me to discover the answers I'm looking for without directly telling me but instead working through issues/scenarios which lead to me concluding on the situation myself which is great. It really ensures that I understand the conclusion that is made from issues posed instead of being told and not really understanding. Samuel is super attentive and makes therapy a comfortable and beneficial experience. I have been really enjoying my sessions so far and feel like I am learning a lot from the worksheets and conversations I have with Samuel.
I like him
Samuel helped me dive into my issues and gave me the tools and support to address them. He's helped me learn coping mechanisms and thought processes that will be useful for the rest of my life.
Sam is great to talk too.
I have taken sessions with Samnuel for three months. He is a very experienced therapist, helping me find issues behind my actions. He taught me useful tools to solve things that I have been struggled for a long time. He is very energetic and willing to help. Definitely recommend!
I loved my first two sessions with Sam. Really getting into it for the future and excited!
I have been spending the last few months getting to know Sam and he is a great/funny guy, therapist and listener. He is extremely knowledgeable about behaviors and the brain. He's the kind of guy you can sit and talk to for hours and not know were the time went. He has helped me deal with my worst trauma's in my life and now I am back to being a productive person with strong motivation to succeed. I think Sam had a lot to do with that. My Fiancé, was tired of listening to my painful stories and Sam added an unbias ear to bend.
He is a wonderful, helpful source of insight
Samuel has been so helpful in working with me on some personal issues, and understood my concerns sometimes better than I did. He was so welcoming and understanding, I would recommend him to anyone!
Mr.Nichols is great. Our 1st session was awesome. He took the time to listen as well as offered great ways for me to cope. Thank you Mr Nichols looking forward to our next session.
When I joined Better Help I wouldn't imagine in 100 years Sam would be this good he's just straight up awesome.
Samuel is super helpful and gives diagnosis professionally!! So grateful to be working with him :)
Really helped me get back on track
Samuel helped me by supporting and encouraging me! He made me feel understood and improved my way of thinking! I like his way of thinking and he encourages you to see things from a different perspective that you may not have been able to see by yourself
Understands individual problems. Listens .doesn't judge . Says it as it is.
Great therapist. Provided me with valuable insight into how Incan improve myself and my mentality. God bless you and your family always!
