Announcement icon During this time, my practice is exclusively virtual and is full.
Nicole M. Ward is not currently accepting new clients.
*My practice is currently full.* My practice is based on the philosophy that wellness is an ongoing process of growth that includes learning to cope with life challenges, while also recognizing life triumphs. The therapeutic process is an excellent tool for increasing coping skills during life transitions as well as in your overall wellness regimen. I view my role as a therapist as a guide to assist during these times. I have over fourteen years of experience working with individuals and couples on a variety of concerns including: building better relationships, anxiety, depression, family conflict and trauma.
I work with individuals and couples. I also enjoy working with other helping professionals and healers to facilitate professional growth and address vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue. My theoretical orientation is influenced by Family/Relational Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Existential Psychology.
Taking a proactive approach to your wellness has benefits that are realized for years to come. I look forward to working together to develop a plan that best suits your needs.
