About Wendy Nickerson, LCSW

I strive to connect with clients through a safe, respectful, supportive environment to enable healing. I bring a wide range of life experiences as well as therapeutic expertise to the sessions, to help you feel understood. My focus is with adults experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, relationship challenges and those healing from addictive behaviors and substance use. I strive to work with you to help build a stronger sense of self-confidence and connection with others, according to your own individual goals. My background in social work enables us to consider factors that influence a person individually and within their overall environment, including family, community, and cultural influences. I offer a person-centered approach and incorporate cognitive behavioral concepts and skills, mindfulness techniques, self-compassion work, communications skills, grounding, and other techniques as appropriate.
