About this Service
Hi, I’m Nicole! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Wisconsin and have been working in the field for 4 years. I have experience working with adults in the areas of mental health: specifically depression, anxiety, eating disorders, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, and substance abuse. I have worked both in hospitals and clinic settings providing both individual psychotherapy and facilitating group therapy for both men and women.
My counseling style is empathetic, compassionate, yet honest. My approach stems a lot from dialectical behavior therapy, and developing positive coping skills. Other approaches I tend to use is cognitive behavioral therapy, reality therapy, solution focused therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. I like to work from a strength-based perspective, recognizing each individuals strengths, capabilities, and resiliencies. I treat every client as the individual they are, and will use different approaches to suit each individual’s needs. When working together, I can help you to identify and set positive goals, and provide any resources that I can.
I graduated from UW-Milwaukee with a bachelors in psychology and graduated from Concordia University with a masters in Professional Counseling.
When i’m not in the field providing counseling, I like to enjoy my free time spending time with family and friends, painting, running, going to concerts, and snuggling up with my three kitties and watching Netflix.
It is not easy living every day suffering in silence. Asking for help is okay. Every day I am amazed at how strong the clients I work with are, and they are true inspirations to me.
I look forward to working with you!
