Nicki Wharton, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Salt Lake City UT
It is my belief that the source of healing lies within all of us. Having the opportunity to join clients on their journey toward healing is truly a gift for which I am grateful. As your therapist, I will hold your pain with non-judgment and help to create a sense of safety within your mind, body, and spirit. This journey takes courage; it is difficult to face the darkest parts of ourselves. It is my honor to support you in living a life with greater meaning, joy and courage.
Welcome! My name is Nicki and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I am a trauma-informed therapist who specializes in psychedelic assisted psychotherapy. Our pain holds key insights for our healing. When we approach it with curiosity and compassion, it will transform. My therapeutic approach is guided by current scientific research and individualized to meet the specific needs of each client. I have been trained and certified in Attachment-Focused EMDR and Brene Brown’s Daring Way shame-resilience program. I have also completed an 8-week psychedelic therapist training through Salt City Psychedelic Therapy and Research (SCPTR). I have also trained with Psychedelic Somatic Institute and the Ketamine Training Center. I enjoy working collaboratively with clients to help them prepare and integrate their experiences with higher states of consciousness.
