“There is no greater agony, than bearing an untold story inside you.” – Maya Angelou
Nicole Wilkinson, Licensed Associate Counselor, I believe that as individuals, we encounter events that leave us searching for a reset button, solid ground, and a sense of hope. In those moments of uncertainty we begin to unravel the details of an untold story of our lives, which is desperately seeking for understanding, clarity, and peace. I am a firm believer that once we begin to explore our true self, explore underlying events that affect us present day, and begin to write a new narrative, change is inevitable. When we recognize, the capabilities we have and normalize the positive outcomes of seeking help, the question becomes: With the right support, how willing are you to put in the work to discover purpose and meaning?
As a former educator and true believer, I have come to understand that we are all uniquely designed and need to be met where we are. Upon, entering the field of counseling, I have worked with a variety of populations: from children displaying challenges with emotional regulation and expression, adolescents who are seeking a sense of self, while also adjusting to new norms, as well as, adults who are working towards confronting emotional disturbances, anxieties, and depression. In addition, I have supported victims of domestic violence in processing trauma; encouraging the “fight” that will one day lead to the light at end of the tunnel. Currently, I am working with individuals who are ready for change, want to regain control, and no longer want to allow addiction to dictate their next move.
My therapeutic approach is person centered. I believe in the power of a therapeutic partnership. My goal is to strive to empower, support, and walk alongside you as we reach self-awareness. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Reality Therapy during treatment. However, I will modify therapeutic sessions to meet your individual needs.
We have all been called to fulfill a higher purpose. Let’s discover yours together.
