Operating from a holistic approach, Nicole assists clients in understanding their suffering and discovering their inner strength through acceptance and choice. Her methods are informed by Western psychology and Eastern philosophy. She employs mindfulness-based techniques, including yoga and meditation, to help individuals connect to their body, mind, and spirit. She addresses a wide range of issues, but focuses on anxiety, depression, emotion recognition and regulation, existential and spiritual concerns, and communication in relationship.
Nicole also has a passion for working with expectant mothers through the emotional and physical challenges of pregnancy and childbirth. She integrates individual and group therapy with prenatal yoga, breathing exercises and awareness techniques. These methods assist clients in working with fear, anxiety and pain during pregnancy, labor and early parenthood.
Nicole received her Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Mercer University, and her BBA in Marketing from Georgia State University. She is a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor in Georgia, a National Certified Counselor, and a certified yoga and prenatal instructor in the Pranakriya yoga tradition. She teaches yoga and meditation in-studio, as well as inpatient and outpatient settings.
