About Me

I graduated with my undergraduate degree in psychology and my master’s degree in professional counseling, both from Lindenwood University. In my professional career, prior to being a therapist, I worked in the fields of vocational rehabilitation, pain management, drug and alcohol addiction, and applied behavior analysis. My practicum for my Master’s degree was completed at Northwest High School, where I held group sessions for at-risk youth and provided individual crisis counseling to students. I was a professor of undergraduate introductory psychology at Jefferson College and continue to see clients through my private practice.

As a teenage navigating a constantly evolving and sometimes difficult world, we are accumulations of our experiences, patterns, skills, and desires. We sometimes need to enhance our abilities to cope or gain insight through seeing a different perspective, but we all have the innate ability to grow and heal ourselves. As a therapist, my goal is to assist you in attaining your desired outcomes and reaching a point of contentment in your life.
I utilize an eclectic approach to therapy, incorporating person-centered and solution-focused models, as well as Gestalt’s techniques, and ACT to empower and challenge my clients to reach their goals.

While the needs that I see are varied, acceptance, understanding, and intentional focus on growth make my approach universally applicable. I hope that my studies and passion can help you on your journey to attain the calm, light, and fulfilling life we all work for and deserve. Take care and be well!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Nicole Reineri. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.

Nicole has been an amazing support for my daughter & I during a very difficult time. In addition, she has given us tools & approaches that have helped us to deal with challenges & “break the circle” of trauma. Thanks to her, my daughter has gained confidence in her own abilities & no longer suffers for debilitating panic attacks. Thank you Nicole

I wouldn't and couldn't wish for someone else.

I have been working with Nicole for several months and our sessions have only been getting better as she more fully understands my story. She has gone above and beyond for me with supplying resources for my religious and faith journey, as well as helped me develop the confidence I need to tackle some family issues head on. Our weekly video sessions are packed full of helpful discussion and actionable advice, and our instant messages between sessions have been very supportive of the work I’m doing. Nicole has supported me through some very difficult decisions and is helping me grow into a healthier and happier person.

I like the way she hear what I say and asks questions that helps focus on the parts I may be missing myself. There isn't anything she hasn't been able to understand and help me with and I'm grateful for her and the way she practices aiding my self development and self exploring

I feel incredibly lucky to have found Nicole. After a couple of failed attempts with therapists on here before, Nicole has shown me nothing but care and compassion. Nicole guides me through my emotions during therapy and helps me set really achievable goals throughout our sessions.

Nicole very adeptly guided me and supported me through many layered crises. The weekly sessions with her brought me through to a better understanding of myself and more confidence then I think I have ever had in my life. It felt like a great combo of important questions I couldn't face before and supportive patience.
