About Nicole, LCSW

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, practicing in Connecticut.  I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Connecticut and after gaining professional experience in the corporate marketing world, I recognized a need to shift careers. This awareness led me to attend Fordham University to pursue my passion for helping others and desire to feel aligned and authentic in my work, where I earned my Master’s in Social Work. 

I have experience supporting students’ social emotional needs within the school system, holding space for grieving clients through a bereavement group, and I have extensive experience providing psychotherapy to adolescents, adults, couples and families in an outpatient behavioral health clinic and private group therapy practice. 

I am professionally affiliated with the National Association of Social Workers, and I have been trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy through Fordham's Graduate School of Social Service. 

Nicole's approach to therapy 

I value the fit of the therapeutic relationship above all else, and I am passionate about empowering clients to feel seen and heard.  I recognize the importance of tailoring my approach to meet the unique needs of each individual client. My work will always be collaborative in nature with a focus on identifying patterns that may no longer be serving clients and helping clients to honor and hone in on their own intuition, as I believe everyone possesses answers within themselves. 

I aim to compassionately hold clients accountable, and I always strive to approach my work with clients from a strengths-based, holistic lens that allows clients to explore themselves and life's many challenges, free of judgement, in order to heal and grow. 

My integrative approach draws from a variety of evidence-based modalities to support the therapeutic process, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic and Relational Therapy.  I also provide tangible tools and strategies, knowing that the client's work outside of the therapy session is just as if not more important than the work done together.
