About Nicole

Welcome to my therapist biography! I am so glad you're beginning your therapy journey with us. My name is Nicole and I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in Erie, PA. I obtained my clinical license in February 2024. I have been with Journey to a Trauma Informed life for about 2 years now. I feel like therapy can be one of the hardest adventures but leads down a road of self discovery and acceptance. One of my favorite mantras that I often use in sessions is that "some of our biggest challenges in life put us on the path for the very best time in life". I love being able to watch individuals better understand themselves and work on developing themselves. 

During my time being a social worker, I have developed a range of experience and knowledge about community resources, intimate partner violence, mental health, and advocacy for those with physical limitations. I have worked with individuals experiencing adhd, trauma, gender dysphoria, depression, anxiety, grief, c-ptsd, and autism spectrum disorder. I have experience working with children, teens, adults, and the geriatric population.

I often like to use various approaches to my therapeutic style, focusing mostly on a client-centered approach. Some of my other commonly used approaches include EMDR, strengths based, mindfulness, dialectical behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy approaches. My approach is often very flexible and often is determined by the client's overall needs. I am looking forward to working to develop your skills.
