Nicole engages in non-directive play therapy with young children. This is a counseling method in which the client is in charge of leading sessions. The therapist's role is to act as a narrator of the play and use the child's language. Children tend to express their thoughts and feelings through their play.
Nicole also utilizes child-parent relationship therapy (CPRT), which focuses on the relationship itself and the strengths of both parent and child. Parents will be taught how to respond empathetically to their child's feelings and set therapeutic limits.
Nicole specializes in ecotherapy and offers holding sessions outdoors to integrate the benefits of nature and counseling. She is open to meeting families at the child's favorite park, beach, playground, and more.
