I am a licensed counselor in both Montana and Colorado. I graduated from Montana State University in 2008 with a masters degree in Marriage and Family Counseling. I have been providing therapy services for over 10 years and have experience in multiple settings, primarily with children and adolescents between the ages of 5-18. I have a great deal of experience in family therapy, as well as providing parents support and coaching through difficult situations. The diagnoses I have worked with primarily include, but are not limited to, PTSD, depression, anxiety, intermittent explosive disorder, and reactive attachment disorder. I also have a great deal of experience in helping those going through transitions including, but not limited to, grief and loss, divorce, changes schools, and blended families. I also have a background in working with survivors of abuse and other traumatic events.
My counseling style is very open, meeting people where they are at. Therapy can be very difficult and people entering therapy may feel very vulnerable. Thus, I like to try to help my clients feel comfortable and supported throughout the process. Compassion and sensitivity are key to my counseling style and I strive to ensure that my clients feel accepted throughout the counseling process. My counseling approach is a combination of cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, person-centered, and reality-based therapy. I often adjust my counseling style to fit each individual, their therapy goals, and current needs. When working with youth and young adults, I like to include family in the process, as they are the most consistent support system in the client's life.
If your child is in need of addition support, whether it be due to a transition, family related issues, or peer concerns, I would love to help. Childhood and adolescence can be a very challenging and difficult time to navigate through and having someone to reach out to can make it seem less daunting.

I really enjoy working with Nicole, she has a wonderful ability to ask me the questions that help me to see the issues I’m facing in my life in a different light. That I’m able to stop and think about healthy ways to approach hard things in my life. My confidence is growing everyday! I’m very thankful for her helping me through my journey!
I appreciate Nicole listening to my concerns and being quick to reply.
Nicole is caring and knowledgeable. She offers solutions and opportunities, in addition to really hearing what it is that you are going through.
I am so grateful to have been paired with Nicole. She is fantastic! We have only been working together for a couple of weeks and I feel so much support already. I am confident we are on the right path. She has great ideas and suggestions and truly hears me.
Nicole has helped me so much already and continues to foster positive growth. I can feel that she is on my team and that alone is invaluable.
Nicole has helped me so much. Just having someone to help me process when things are stressful is really awesome.
Nicole has been so helpful through her compassionate listening, expertise and coping techniques. She helped me out of a very rough patch and continues to support me in my process. She is very kind and attentionate, and made me believe/understand that things will indeed get better. I owe a lot to her, and would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone seeking a bit of light in their darker days. I am very grateful for her.
Nicole is a great and kind counselor. She is very supportive, good at spotting the core issues, and really helpful.
Very caring and professional. She replies to my messages quite regularly and balances both the listening and advice giving aspects of counseling well.
Nicole is really helpful and smart.
Nicole is incredibly understanding and kind. We've only worked together for a little while now, but she's been supporting and empathic from the very first second. She encourages and reassures me, which has been a great help.
I have nothing but praise for Nicole, her methods and grasp of what I need. Nicole has been extremely flexible in the delivery, being very forgiving when i get the time differences a little mixed up. It takes a very talented and knowledgable person to have such a huge impact across the world. Advice I have used with immediate effect, stopping a negative pathway in their tracks. I feel like I can unpack and sort out some pretty heavy issues, knowing Nicole will treat them and myself with respect and care.
She is very kind and responsible and even though our time has been very short she has helped me tremendously.
Nicole is very kind and always puts things into perspective. I can always trust in her advice!
