I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Maryland with over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and professor of counseling. My favorite populations to work with are young adults, families, and couples, but I also have a special place in my heart for adolescents. While my faith is my core foundation and I truly believe the Bible is the greatest counseling manual every writtern, I am also open to explore ways how your faith factors into your choices and life.
My counseling style is casual, conversational, warm, and fun! In addition, I am also warm, compassionate, solutions oriented, holistic and collaborative. I integrate a variety of models of therapy throughout my work including: developmental, person-centered, strengths-based, a “here and now” approach. Throughout our work together, my intent is to create a space where you feel comfortable, supported and heard. Together we can process your feelings and experiences in a way that is manageable. We will also gain awareness of your patterned ways of thinking and behaving; and let go of the patterns that are no longer useful to you. In addition, we will be incorporating new skills you can integrate into your daily life that allow you to feel a sense of strength, confidence, and ability to manage, including in times of stress
I feel honored to work with my clients and I view it as privilege to be on this journey to find your place of peace in your life and your relationship with God. I'm extremely invested in what you want to work on in your counseling sessions and I pride myself on taking a non-judgmental approach with my clients so that you always feel safe to talk about what is on your mind.

I’ve worked with a few counselors throughout my years but Nikki is by far my favorite. She not only provides a listening ear but also is quick to turn problems into bite-sized pieces that feel so much more achievable. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
