Announcement icon Feel free to reach out to me to see how I can support you during these difficult and unsettling times. I offer confidential teletherapy.
Nicole Arkin is not currently accepting new clients.
It isn't difficult to feel scared, vulnerable and not good enough in our complex world, let alone if you have a history of being abused or neglected. Therapy can help you slowly make sense of the past so that you can encounter the present moment with more awareness and vigor. I am psychotherapist with an abiding love of the arts and often work with sensitive and creative individuals, many of whom have histories of abuse/neglect and are struggling to make sense of their past and present lives in order to find a greater sense of freedom/comfort within their own skins.
Since 2008, I have provided long term individual depth oriented psychotherapy with adults. I have additional training in psychodynamically oriented psychotherapy as well as a steady meditation practice and interest in Buddhist psychology that support my work.
I find it important to examine the societal context of individual suffering, particularly themes related to oppression and injustice, and tend to be the most well suited for working with sensitive and creative individuals as well as those who struggle with depression, anxiety, self esteem, loss/grief, pregnancy/postpartum and chronic/ terminal illness.
