My name is Nicole and I've been a mental health practitioner for 15 years and feel fortunate to serve others in supporting their emotional and mental well-being goals.
She is a Montana native who relocated to Texas a few years ago starting a small private practice. She
graduated with a Master of Arts in Community Counseling from Gonzaga University in Spokane,
Washington in 2009. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Montana State University.
Nicole has approximately nine years of counseling experience working with adults, adolescents, young
children, couples, and families. She has practiced various modalities including equine therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused, dialectical behavior therapy, and career counseling.
She has worked as a counselor in youth group home, residential treatment facilities, and served as a
researcher for Corpus Christi in measuring effective youth treatment programs to rehabilitate youth in
the legal system. Nicole lived in Oregon where she was a mental health therapist for an adult outpatient co-occurring program. She worked with individuals who met diagnosis of PTSD, depression, anxiety, other mood
disorders, learning disorders, and ADHD. She provided both mental health therapies as well as support
to clients with ongoing chemical dependency issues. She has counseled adults in medication assisted
treatment or opiate outpatient care. She has experience with coordinating care with other medical
providers and helping individuals to achieve stability in their lives.
She has lived in both Wyoming and Washington in which she provided services to the general public as a
vocational rehabilitation counselor. Nicole assisted in having individuals complete psychological
assessments along with other vocational tools in effort to explore the person’s strengths and capabilities
in finding a new role in the workforce after injury or becoming disabled.
Nicole taught English as a second language while living abroad in Hungary. She enjoys learning about
new cultures and travel. She likes spending time with family, kayaking, and horseback riding. Nicole
hopes to pursue EAGALA certification (an equine assisted therapy) to assist veterans battling PTSD.
