Nicole is a Founding Member at Thrive.
Nicole currently works at Penn State Behrend. She generally works with traditionally aged college students (18-24) and adults. Nicole has experience with anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues and trauma. She also has intensive training in DBT skills and is working toward certification in EMDR.
Her favorite part about working as a therapist is “hands down, creating a space for others to feel heard, understood, and validated. Joy for me, comes from my relationships from others and helping guide others toward positive growth and change.”
Nicole’s hope in joining Thrive is that “Thrive will provide a resource for clinicians, community members, and clients to come together to share knowledge, skills, advice, support, and camaraderie. Working in the mental health field can be emotionally taxing and sharing a trusting, close relationship with colleagues will be an asset to avoiding burnout, enhancing my therapeutic skill set, and making new friends!”
She also offers evening and Saturday appointments!
