Sonia Nikolova is not currently accepting new clients.

NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS. I offer an integrated approach of medication management and psychotherapy to adults. I will work with you towards clear goals to achieve mental wellness. I recommend medications if they are helpful and necessary for your healing, but I see them as only one part towards mental wellness. PLEASE NOTE: I prescribe controlled substances as a last resort once we have a well-established relationship, and with a verifiable record that other alternatives have failed. I aspire to create a sense of safety through empathy and non-judgment that will help us explore your challenges and facilitate healing.

I am a board certified Adult Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner with extensive CBT postgraduate training and the first psychiatric provider in Washington State to be certified by the the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. Due to my integrated approach I generally prescribe in conjuction with psychotherapy for DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, PANIC ATTACKS, PTSD.

I value the therapeutic relationship, respect your personal values and cultural background. I will work collaboratively with you to set and carry out a personalized treatment. I use the most current and effective apporaches in psychotherapy and psychiatry while preserving a holistic focus and emphasizing the mind-body connection.

Professional Connections

Sonia is an incredibly knowledgeable and caring professional. She always goes above and beyond for her clients and will diligently research anything she is unsure of. I cannot recommend her highly enough, especially for anyone nervous about the process of therapy or medication management. Sonia is extremely client-centered and will make sure you are well informed and comfortable before moving forward with any medication recommendations.
