Perinatal Mental Health
Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders are experienced in 1 in 5 women and 1 in 10 men. Please know that with informed care you can prevent a worsening of these symptoms and can fully recover. There is no reason to continue to suffer.
EMDR Trained for Perinatal & Infant Mental Health
Nicole uses her EMDRIA approved EMDR training as a vital part of her trauma-informed approach to all perinatal mental health care.
Exposure and Response Prevention for OCD
Nicole is trained in the use of EX/RP therapy to target symptoms of OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and phobias. This therapy allows the individual to be gradually introduced to stimuli that provoke the obsessive thoughts without performing the rituals/compulsions that reinforce that thought.
I love helping my patients develop the tools they need to cope with all of life’s challenges. Contact me today to learn more and book a session.
