Accepting New Clients/short wait list. It can feel awful to struggle with crippling anxiety, depression, or the impacts of past trauma & abuse. Maybe it's a rough patch in your life or struggles in a relationship. Maybe you've struggled for so long it just feels the way it will always be. We all need help from time to time with our struggles, whether they are recent issues or long-term mental health challenges. You may not even be sure what the problem is, but you know there is a problem & you want to feel better. You want a non-judgmental, safe, empathetic, and skilled person who can help. I work with individuals (18+), & couples.

Bill has a very straightforward and matter-of-fact approach to psychotherapy and counseling. He describes his approach as "change oriented", believing the client's inherent strengths provide the keys to growth and recovery. Bill recognized the profound role the family plays in mental health. Bill finds working with families especially rewarding. Much of that works includes couple and marriage counseling and youth.

I serve women in the Cedar Valley. We have often accomplished and experienced a lot in our lives by the time we seek counseling. All of us have periods where we struggle; perhaps we can't sleep, we are stressed to the breaking point and in spite of having people around us, we may feel lonely or depressed. If this is you, you aren't alone.

I am a bilingual Spanish/English mental health counselor who understands that talking about how you really think or feel is not easy, and sometimes can be scary. Opening up to a stranger takes courage, and I know that taking that first step can be difficult. You might doubt that things can get better, that’s why I want to provide you that space where you feel comfortable and where you can be you. Choosing a therapist is not an easy process, I am committed to developing our therapeutic relationship.

We all need help at some point in our lives. Feeling stuck is disorienting and sometimes it takes someone outside of your circumstances to help. Taking the step to reach out and ask for help is courageous, but can be nerve-racking too. Many people simply need a safe place to crash land and unpack some of life's hardships whether it's relationships, parenting, work stress, anxiety or depression.

Each of us can identify some aspect of our lives that we'd like to change. As your therapist, my intention is to help you learn about the therapeutic process and how it can help you identify the changes you'd like to make; collaborate with you in setting realistic, achievable goals for yourself; teach you to incorporate coping skills to ease through transitions; and fully support you while we walk this journey together. Above all else, your comfort is my priority, and I offer you compassion and understanding without judgment.

Now accepting new clients - Therapy can be overwhelming and it is important to me to create a place where you can feel safe to be vulnerable. I provide a calm and laid-back environment to offer an inviting atmosphere for you to discuss your feelings, thoughts, and experiences. This is especially important to me because I know that growth happens outside of our comfort zone. We aren’t always aware of what we can achieve, and I enjoy assisting others in opening their eyes to their full potential. I have a strong belief that being willing to explore the challenging pieces of ourselves will allow us to grow.

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.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
