Professional statement

Nicole Theodore is a Licensed Master Social Worker located in New York, NY who specializes in working with adults facing major life transitions in their lives due to loss, medical diagnoses, serious illness, or any abrupt and sudden change. Many of Nicole’s clients feel stuck, hopeless, and unsure of how to move forward as they manage through these difficult changes, which can often lead to feelings of shame, anxiety, guilt, and depression. She is also passionate about working with women facing modern stressors of dating, career transitions, imposter syndrome, or a dedication to high performance at work.

Nicole’s holistic approach to therapy draws from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction therapy. Clients process through their current and past experiences with Nicole’s warm perspective and support, and they learn more about their thought and behavioral patterns. Nicole helps clients align their lives to their values and what’s most important to them, doing so in a way that fosters the mind-body connection.She is also passionate about supporting individuals as they navigate the relationship they have with their bodies.

Nicole earned a Master’s degree from New York University, where she was a Zelda Foster Palliative and End of Life Care fellow. She’s worked in many diverse hospital settings, including Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
