Professional statement

Nicole Richardson began her career working with people struggling with chemical dependence recovery and she quickly learned that where substance abuse is present, family unrest and trauma are often nearby as well. After seeking a great deal of training in all three areas, she feels comfortable working with each problem on its own as well as when they are presented in one situation.

Growing up in a military family, Nicole learned that giving back to your community is the highest calling. She initially planned on a different career but fell in love with mental health work as an undergraduate at Texas State University when she learned about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). In graduate school at Saint Edward’s University she began training in both the Gottman Method as well as EMDR. Nicole is now certified in EMDR.

Much like physical training, mental health work can be hard at times and often results are not immediate but when people put in the work and take small steps each day, the life they have always dreamed of in attainable. Nicole is ready to help clients take those small steps towards their dream lives.


Message to clients

Are you tired with dealing with what feels like the same old patterns or bad habits? We can all get stuck in bad loops but if you’re ready to take your power back, I’m ready to support you in that work.

Much of my work centers on perfectionism, trauma, chemical dependence and couples who are struggling. Change is really difficult but you have already taken a bold step by looking through profiles and trying to find your best fit. My style is direct and client-centered; you set the goals and the pace. This is your life and you get to decide how you live it.
