Resident in Counseling
Did you know you don’t have to be in a state of crisis to seek out therapy? I have met many of my clients at various points in their lives. Some come in with the goal of facilitating growth in specific areas, while others come in looking to gain the necessary tools to navigate a particularly challenging life transition. Regardless of when you decide to begin this journey of healing, the decision you make is one that is personal to you and your unique set of circumstances. The self-knowledge, skills and insight you gain is an investment into your future and pays dividends in helping you navigate upcoming life events.
Nikki sees clients who struggle with depression and anxiety, pregnancy and peripartum issues, personality disorders, mood disorders, relationship transitions such as divorce, remarriage, and parenting teens, as well as clients pursuing spiritual integration and growth work. I apply a variety of modalities working with my clients such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Gestalt, & Gottman.
Nikki understands that you have an expert view of your own life. As your therapist, her job is to learn about you! How your values, background, experiences, dreams and aspirations shape your perspectives. While in session, Nikki holds space for you to examine self-limiting beliefs, outdated value structures and negative self-concepts which have outgrown their usefulness.
