Welcome! My name is Nicki and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. In my private practice I specialize in working with women- women who are struggling to show up and be seen in their lives. I am a trauma-informed and attachment-based therapist who honors that our most painful and darkest experiences hold key insights. When we approach our pain 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 intensively trained and certified in Attachment-Focused EMDR and Brenae 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 enjoy working collaboratively with clients to help them prepare and integrate their experiences with non-ordinary states of consciousness.


How I work with clients

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.
