Professional statement

Nicole Barman is a therapist in New York who works with people who are looking to understand themselves, cope with the stresses of life and help individuals live harmoniously with their internal contradictions. Nicole specializes in anxiety, depression, life transitions, vocational domains, LGBTQ youth, adolescents, and adults. Nicole began her career working with adolescents and young adults in an outpatient program, where she served underserved communities.

Nicole’s strengths lie in her ability to empathize with her clients while creating a warm and supportive environment that allows her clients to explore areas that may feel uncomfortable. Nicole is hands-on in her work, helping her clients explore feelings and thoughts that maybe unpleasant, but are important to inspect and understand. Nicole is also relational in her work; she sees the therapy space as a microcosm of the real world. She will share noticeable patterns with you, dynamics she picks up in the therapy room and help you see how this maybe playing out in the “real world”. Over time, you can understand your thoughts and behavior through a new lens, unraveling the root of your difficulties, in a space that is non-judgmental, warm, and inviting.

Nicole is a recent graduate from New York University where she studied Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Wellness. Nicole has adapted a very holistic approach and believes that each client is unique; with that, so is their treatment plan. Nicole uses Psychodynamics and a relational approach as she sees people as being social beings, with a lot of issues stemming from interpersonal struggles.Overall, Nicole uses many modalities, providing clients with different tools and different ways of thought.

Nicole prioritizes creating an environment that ensures her clients feel safe, heard, and accepted. Nicole is currently conducting therapy remote.


Message to clients

The purpose of my work is to help provide a safe, warm, and supportive environment to start meaningful change. Reaching out for help is not an easy task, it takes courage and hard work, and that is not something I take lightly. My therapy focuses’ on gaining a deep understanding of who you are and changing behaviors that are no longer serving you. Together we will be able to take a deeper look into your narrative, explore, reflect and ultimately work towards the goals you set forth. Please feel free to reach out with any questions about the therapy process or my practice specifically.
