Professional statement

Therapy with Nicole is a space where clients can foster their happiness, fulfillment, and overall wellness. By reflecting on their unique personal beliefs and values, clients are able to increase their self awareness and move through life with more confidence.

Nicole works with first-generation Americans, female identifying clients, and people struggling with life transitions to feel more grounded and secure in themselves. Her approach includes teaching mindfulness skills to reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and increase overall wellbeing. She also works with clients to identify and build upon their inner strengths so they can learn to lean on them in the face of adversity.

Nicole is on a mission to destigmatize mental health care, especially in immigrant and BIPOC communities. Empowering people with tools to emotionally regulate, identify unhelpful patterns, and communicate in a healthy way will create a ripple effect that could help to heal ourselves and others.

Message to clients

Facing life’s challenges with autonomy, confidence, and self reliance leads to growth. By cultivating resilience, you'll build your inner strength and become more secure in your sense of self.

Many of my clients identify as women or first-generation Americans who are struggling with life transitions, anxiety, impostor syndrome, or finding the language to describe their mental health. I hold these identities myself, so I understand what it’s like to navigate the nuances of who you are and push back against the stigma that persists around mental health.

I’ve made it my mission to help overcome this stigma so my clients can explore their sense of self and belonging. As we collaborate toward your goals, I’ll provide structure in sessions while gently encouraging self-exploration. We might discuss your identity, cultural influences, and your personal values. We’ll also build upon your innate talents and capabilities to increase your confidence, independence, and overall well-being.
