Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker
Nicole is a young clinician and LICSW/MLADC candidate with Counseling Associates. She works primarily with teens and adults and strives to create a therapeutic space where clients can feel empowered to share their experiences and struggles, in order to meet them where they are and support them on their journey.
Nicole has vast experience working at the intersections of co-occurring disorders and the criminal justice system, including mental health and drug court programs across New Hampshire and Maine, and has also worked with survivors of human trafficking, domestic, and sexual violence for many years. She also has specialized experience in group treatments for substance use disorders, including Intensive Outpatient Programs, and criminogenic behaviors as a certified facilitator of Moral Reconation Therapy.
Nicole pulls from these experiences in order to make her practice empathetic, inclusive, and trauma-informed, utilizing a variety of modalities from art therapy to CBT to best meet the needs of each individual.
