Nicole Hast, MS, EdS, LCPC, NCC, Counselor in Rockville
Have you found yourself feeling sad, worn-down, angry, lonely, or anxious lately? Is your relationship with your significant other, child, or parent not what you would like and you're having trouble relating to them in manner you want? The bad news is that these issues can make life difficult or even unbearable and can lead to further feelings of loneliness and isolation; the good news is that change is possible and you are not alone. As your counselor, we will collaborate to create a plan to meet your goals quickly and effectively.
While I work with a variety of clients and issues, I specialize in working with mood and anxiety disorders, life transitions, and the LGBTQIA community, particularly those who identify as trans* or gender non-conforming. For these issues, I have gained a wide variety of experiences and completed advanced training.
To accommodate the already busy schedule you may have, I offer flexible hours with evening and weekend appointments available. For more information about my practice visit, or call me to see how we might be able to work together to help resolve what is troubling you.
