Professional statement

Superheroes aren’t real but that doesn’t mean heroes don’t exist in another capacity. Nick has spent his life working to become the best version of himself and a hero for the unique and amazing individuals around him who are struggling with their lives and mental health. Through the therapeutic techniques he’s learned, he now has the avenue to help people to the best of his ability. He aims to use his knowledge to work with people in need of help so that they may one day be able to reach and even surpass their goals.

Nick has worked with individuals with symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADHD, and bipolar disorder. He is interested in working with similar clients again as well as members of the LGBTQ community and young adults. He utilizes mindfulness techniques such as meditation, deep breathing, and progressive muscle relaxation in addition to cognitive behavioral techniques such as positive self-talk, cognitive restructuring/reframing, thought redirection, and journaling.
