Hello, I am Nikki! I'm a licensed Social Worker with over 15 years experience providing varied social work services, crisis intervention and clinical counseling to clients in need. I earned my Bachelors in Social Work from Lehman College City University of New York (CUNY) and my Masters in Social Work from Hunter College School of Social Work (CUNY). I've worked in many different clinical settings ever since. I am a passionate and empathetic therapist with strong counseling abilities and an understanding of interpersonal familial relationships. I have experience leading clients through making simple yet powerful changes to the way they think and act, all leading to a profound impact on health and well being. Through clinical experience, compassion, and empathy I support and assist those willing to make a positive difference in their lives. I pride myself in providing a safe and supportive space, to work side by side to overcome traumas, and barriers. I specialize in addressing destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior and emotions. I am fully committed to listen and offer my best professional practices to help you. I am bold, free thinking, creative and youthful. I will challenge you on a path of self discovery to replace the negative with new skills that can be used in real-world situations to improve health and life. You can count on my empathetic and person-centered approach towards every conversation we take part in. Thank you for taking the first step and for allowing me to be part of this very important journey.
