Nichole is a Licensed Social Worker (LSW) in the state of New Jersey. She graduated from Kean University with both her undergraduate degree in Psychology and a graduate degree in Clinical Social Work.
With over 2 years of clinical practice experience working in a variety of outpatient/inpatient treatment settings, Nichole has worked with diverse client populations while using an eclectic person-centered therapeutic approach, tailored to the unique needs of each individual. Incorporating elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Psychodynamics, Nichole hopes to assist clients in enhancing their effectiveness in managing life stressors, while strengthening their ability to cope with personal challenges, in a therapeutic space that allows for free expression of feelings and emotions.
A foundation of Nichole's practice is to normalize the experience of receiving therapy to create maximum comfortability in the therapeutic process and reduce stigma or barriers clients may encounter while obtaining additional support for their current needs. Whether it's assistance for developing coping skills for daily stressors or broader emotional concerns, Nichole is eager to participate in the client's personal exploration and improvement of their life’s current obstacles.
