And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Meet Nicole

I have worked with all forms of trauma, as well as depression, anxiety, and relationship stress. My psychotherapy training is emotionally focused and includes attachment based work, use of the comprehensive resource model, internal family systems theory and trauma therapies based on cutting edge neuroscience. I also utilize somatic exercises in processing trauma that has occurred throughout the lifespan.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Substance Abuse Counselor and trained yoga instructor. I also have taught at the graduate school level at UW Milwaukee and currently am working with UW Madison and the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Science (MAPS) on an FDA approved protocol. In addition, I am affiliated with several Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy programs, and have completed the Certificate in Psychedelic Theory and Research at the California Institute of Integral Studies.
