Nicole is WONDERFUL. In only a couple sessions with her (so far) I am already starting to feel like I have a better grasp on my situation. Nicole is attentive, thoughtful in her wording and counseling, and has already helped me to find hope and grace for my situation.
Nicole is a phenomenal counselor that knows how to calm my anxiety and intensity. She recenters me to promote self care, personal growth, and asks the critical questions that guide me through my emotional and psychological work while holding me accountable to the commitments and decisions I’ve made.
Such an eye opening experience to work with Nicole. She has been wonderful and supportive, yet challenges me where I need it most.
Enjoying working with Nicole. She is a professional.
Very professional with a calming voice.
