Nicole has experience working with adolescents and their families treating anger, depression, anxiety, trauma related disorders, and behavioral problems. She is certified in Interpersonal Therapy for Depression (IPT), which focuses on how interpersonal problems (issues within relationships) contribute to symptoms of depression.  Nicole is also certified in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). This therapy explores the impact of past traumatic events - processing how the trauma has impacted the individual's present thinking patterns and reactions/behaviors. Nicole also has experience working with parents helping to improve the parent-child relationship to decrease behavioral issues through a modality called: Triple P (Positive Parenting Program) .

Nicole believes the quality of relationships determines the quality of our lives. She understands problems can stem from past experiences through unmet needs as a child, and as a result, developing unhealthy coping styles. Nicole works collaboratively with her clients, to help them feel understood, increase their ability to communicate effectively to get their needs met, and deal with stressors in a healthy way. She integrates a variety of treatment modalities: psychodynamic, attachment theory, and cognitive based approaches. Nicole also incorporates art and music into her sessions.

 

Nicole offers therapy sessions in English and Spanish. She works with adolescents and adults. She provides individual and family therapy sessions.
