Hi, I'm Nicole.

 I am a bilingual, Spanish speaking Associate Marriage Family Therapist and Associate Professional Clinical Counselor born and raised in Los Angeles. I am a proud Latina that is actively working towards destigmatizing mental health in Latin cultures. I received my bachelors of art in psychology from Humboldt State University, then went on to receive my masters of science in clinical psychology from Notre Dame De Namur. I am very passionate about helping others understand the self and building a safe therapeutic environment were clients feel safe and understand that you are not alone in your struggles.


I think every person is unique and depending on your needs, I incorporate different interventions in the therapeutic process such as psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Trauma focused therapy, Family Systems, and Strength Based Approaches. I have worked with diverse populations, including adults with severe mental health issues, homelessness with mental health issues, children in school setting, and substance use with co-occurring mental health issues. Its important for me to meet you where you are and I am excited to working together.


In my free time I like to do DIY projects around my home because it brings me joy. I like to spent time with my fur babies and take them out for walks or to the dog park. I also enjoy going out for hikes and I love to dance. I try and find the little things that bring me joy. Self-Care is very important and it can look like anything, even taking naps while keeping up with the Kardashians is on in the background
