I am honored that you took one of the first steps in the therapeutic process by researching therapists through this site and found me! So, let me tell you a little about myself and my philosophy before you decide if I’m the right person to work with you. As you know, my name is Nicole and I am the owner of Counseling Connection. I chose the name “Counseling Connection” for my practice because I have noticed, throughout my career, that everyone has a need to connect. Whether we like to readily admit it or not, we do want to connect with the world around us, the people in it, and we often want and need to connect with ourselves.

My desire has always been to be available, assisting anyone who is hurting. You may be facing a life altering health diagnosis, perhaps an accident, loss of a job, marital problems, an addiction, parenting issues, death of a loved one, caregiving; the list is endless. Perhaps you are wrestling with issues that aren't apparent to anyone else, but they are very real to you. It is easy to feel isolated and alone.

My experience in social work began in hospice and an international placement in India. Upon returning home, I continued to work in hospice, where I encountered end-of-life concerns, depression, anxiety, grief, and loss. I implement a strengths-based, heart-centered, holistic, and spiritual approach that is collaborative and non-judgmental. Guided by a culturally sensitive perspective, I enjoy working with a diverse population. I empower clients to tap into their own creativity to assist in their healing journey. I blend cognitive behavioral therapy with expressive arts to help clients reach their goals.

As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community myself, I understand the stigma associated with feeling as if you don't fit into the norms that the majority group has set for you. I offer you a safe place to be heard and understood to discuss things others might not get. We all walk a unique path in this life and I will always support your individuality. I absolutely love celebrating successes with those I work with, and I enjoy seeing people’s faces light up with pride in their achievements. Seeing a person grow before your eyes, even when they don’t notice it yet themselves, is an amazing thing. That said, everything isn’t always rainbows,(

Do you like coffee or tea? Me too. Let me pour you a cup and let’s talk! I think good therapy starts with a genuine connection. I will value and validate your unique experiences and perspectives, so that genuine connection starts from the very first session. As a social justice-minded and culturally competent counselor, I provide a very empathetic and safe space for my clients to talk about some pretty heavy issues. Have you felt like an outsider? Do you struggle with the grind culture? Are you experiencing relationship issues? Maybe stuck in a funk? Anxious and not sure why? If so, I think we should meet!

What type of Black Hawk County mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Black Hawk County?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
