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.

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
He has been very helpful
Of course I was skeptical for any type of therapy. After one session , I felt Samuel and I had a good connection. He seems genuine and really cares about helping. I can see it in his facial expressions and the way some of my problems generally bother him. He's a great therapist and is always reaching out on his own time checking in on me which is amazing. I've already recommended him to another friend and I usually don't do that. I rarely put my name on other people so I feel very strong about his ability. I'm very grateful and I appreciate Mr. Nichols
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!
