Nicole Bankhead, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor
Cypress TX
In working with clients, I utilize a range of evidence-based modalities to tailor our sessions to your unique needs. I am trained in EMDR, neurofeedback, and soon will be certified as a psychedelic-assisted therapist. Primarily, I support individuals dealing with PTSD and treatment-resistant anxiety and depression, using neurofeedback, ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, EMDR, CBT, and IFS. My approach is rooted in staying current with the latest advancements in the field to offer you a variety of potential healing options. This allows us to customize your treatment plan effectively. I create a safe and non-judgmental space where you can express your concerns freely. Together, we will develop practical skills and tools that you can apply in real-life situations, such as coping techniques, healthy boundaries, and new perspectives. Homework assignments like journaling or self-reflection activities may also be incorporated to reinforce our session work and encourage personal growth. My therapy style emphasizes empathy, active listening, and building a strong therapeutic alliance. I strive to ensure you feel heard, understood, and supported throughout our journey together. By fostering a collaborative and empowering environment, we will work as a team to address your concerns, explore your strengths, and tailor our approach to meet your goals. I am committed to your well-being and honored to be part of your healing and personal transformation.
Welcome to my therapy practice! As an experienced Licensed Professional Counselor with over 10 years in the field, I am committed to supporting you on your journey towards improved mental health and overall well-being. Many of us entered the psychology field because we are wounded, which gives us great sensitivity and insight into the suffering of others. With a deep interest in mental health and a vision of helping others, some of us even started as pseudo-therapists to our families and friends. This background fuels our empathy and understanding. I have also played close attention to my own healing journeys, allowing me to be more self-aware and connected to my clients’ experiences and needs. We live in a challenging time where every individual has some level of psychological wounding. Beyond that, everyone benefits from becoming more self-aware and engaging in quality psychotherapy. I believe in a holistic approach, addressing both current challenges and the underlying factors contributing to your mental health. My goal is to provide more than just talk therapy; I aim to equip you with practical tools, skills, and education that empower you to live your life to its fullest potential. My dedication to your well-being extends beyond our sessions. I strive to create a safe and compassionate space where you can freely express yourself, be heard, and feel supported. Together, we will explore your strengths, identify areas of growth, and develop practical strategies to enhance your overall mental health. I am excited to embark on this therapeutic journey with you and help you gain the tools, insights, and resources necessary for lasting positive change. Let’s work together to create a fulfilling and meaningful life that aligns with your values and aspirations.
