About

My approach to the counseling relationship is non judgmental and open. I hope to create an environment of safety and acceptance. The goal of the relationship is to establish trust and I do so by coming alongside the client instead of pushing or pulling them to a place they are not yet comfortable. My natural way of being with the client is very bubbly, positive and incorporating laughter into therapy, while helping my clients feel heard. I view the counseling process as a collaborative approach between you & I, and that there is no universal approach to therapy.
I work with children, teens and their families addressing issues related to anxiety, depression, trauma, grief/loss, adjustment issues, social & academic issues, self-esteem issues, developmental concerns, multicultural issues, and life transitions through individual and family therapy.
Hi! My name is Nikki Birkenstock (pronouns: she/her/hers) and I have a passion for helping people, especially children to adolescents. I like to spend my free time painting, gardening, and playing soccer. Most importantly, I enjoy spending quality time with friends and family. Also, I love sunflowers!
