About My Clients

I work with individual adults from various backgrounds. I help guide my clients to look deeper within and listen to what they want and need, in order to find what works best for them. I provide a safe space, compassionate/non-judgmental presence, and hope that things can be better. I ask thought-provoking questions and gently point out other ways of thinking about a situation.

My Background and Approach

Hello, I’m Nicole, a mental health therapist trained and licensed as a clinical social worker in the state of Texas. I have experience treating many different issues, including childhood trauma, Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors such as skin-picking/hair-pulling, and developing strategies to manage ADHD. My primary approach to therapy is relational and client-centered, meaning I believe that the therapist/client relationship is central and that each individual client is the expert on their own life. However, my approach is also eclectic, and I draw from different modalities such as CBT, DBT, and Solution-Focused, based on each individual client's preferences and needs. I believe that life is an ongoing process of growth and change and becoming - with the possibility of evolving into better versions of ourselves over time. I would be honored to walk alongside you and help support you on this part of your journey.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm a proud social and racial justice advocate, LGBTQ+ ally, sex positive, HAES- and poly-affirming, and pro-choice. I'm passionate about helping individuals explore who they are and what they want, and begin to heal old wounds. I am currently accepting new clients - if you are interested in scheduling an initial session or a free 15-minute consultation to see if we would be a good fit working together, please email me at or call me at ‪(737)708-6497. It is helpful if you can let me know whether you plan to use insurance to cover your therapy sessions, and if so, which insurance you have (just the name of the insurance company will do to start) so that I can best advise you on next steps. I look forward to hearing from you!
