Do you accept insurance?

Nicole is an out of network provider. You will be provided with a super bill at each session to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have out of network mental health insurance benefits?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

Is what I talk about kept confidential?

Yes, confidentiality is a large part of the relationship between client and therapist. Anything you discuss in session remains private between yourself and the therapist, with a few exceptions. You may wish for your therapist to share some information with your other healthcare providers (your physician, psychiatrist, etc.). Your therapist can do so after receiving your consent through signing a form to release information. Your therapist will then discuss with you specific information you wish to have shared. 


In addition, state law and professional ethics require therapists to break confidentiality under the following circumstances: 

  • There is suspected past or present abuse or neglect of a child, adult, or elderly individual
  • The therapist has reason to believe the client is a danger to him/herself or has threatened to harm another individual

What kind of issues do you treat?

Nicole works with individuals and families who may be dealing with depression, anxiety, anger management, grief/loss, adjustment issues, ADHD, behavioral issues, family conflict, and other issues that may causing distress. She has experience helping families and parents learn tools to effectively manage conflict and improve relationships within the family unit.
