Message to clients

Hi! I am Nicky Albert, a licensed therapist. Thank you for sharing information about yourself. I'm looking forward to speaking with you and can answer any questions you may have when we connect.

I like to view psychotherapy and the therapeutic relationship as having a personal trainer for your emotional well being and personal life. It can teach relational skills and promote healing. It requires a commitment to yourself and serves as an investment. The return on that investment can be achieving goals, growth, and emotional satisfaction.

There are many reasons someone may seek out a therapist, regardless of those reasons my goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where we can build a trusting therapeutic relationship that allows for healing and growth.
