Nicole Klupenger


About me

Hello, my name is Nicole. I have been working with teens for 20+ years. I have worked in school environments and in treatment centers. My favorite is to work one on one with a young person and encourage them to have a voice, use their voice, and be heard.
My counseling style is Client Centered, warm and interactive with a bit of humor. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, Dialectic Behavioral, Acceptance Based, EMDR, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
