Nicole believes that counseling can be a beneficial source for building awareness, support, and a set of tools to help you navigate your journey.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC). I hold a Masters Degree in Social Work from Marywood University and have over 10 years working with individuals and families plagued by Addictive-, Obsessive-Compulsive-, and Eating- Disorders.
My practice, Whole Hearted Counseling, provides a safe and empowering environment for individuals struggling with addiction to substances, or other compulsive behaviors, to navigate challenges, identify solutions, and create lasting change.
Whether you’re questioning if you have an addiction or seeking recovery, I believe that counseling can be a beneficial source of building awareness, support, and a set of tools to help you navigate your journey. My personal and professional experience with addiction, compulsive behavior, and recovery allows me to offer a unique perspective and inspires trust and mutual understanding for clients navigating the recovery process.
My style is compassionate, direct, supportive and creative. I approach addiction and recovery counseling with the belief that “addiction,” “recovery,” and “sobriety” are client-defined, and that every individual’s story is vastly different, yet broadly the same. This approach allows me to support you in exploring and creating the recovery path that best suits and empowers you to lasting lifestyle change. I do this through various therapeutic frameworks such as, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Acceptance and Commitment (ACT)-, Narrative- and Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)- Therapies, and Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention Strategies (MBRP). The first step to recovery is acknowledging the problem, the next is seeking help. Both of these actions require immense strength, self-awareness, and courage. I honor your decision to take this journey and want you to know that you are worthy and capable of recovery. I look forward to helping you navigate the path with your whole heart.
