Dr. Nixon is an incredible resource. She is kind patient and so helpful. I would highly recommend her to anybody looking for any kind of guidance.
Dr. Nixon really listened to what I was saying and really helped me reflect on who I was becoming. She gave me practical tools and assisted me in making goals to help me grow where I wanted to. She did not judge me and allowed me to be my broken self in front of her and that was what I really needed. And then she helped guide me as I healed.
Dr. Nixon is patient, asks pertinent questions, allows me space to think about my responses and lets me choose how I wish to proceed. She is awesome!
Dr. Nixon is a beautiful inside and out! She is so easy to talk to and makes me feel so comfortable. I'm glad we can talk as much as we might laugh. She is great.
Being able to talk to my counselor gives me a sense of accountability to keep making progress. She understand and sheds light or a different perspective of my situations. She is very supportive and makes me feel very comfortable opening up to her.
