Nicole Hill is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and an Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (AADC). She has worked with adolescents and adults struggling with various issues including post-traumatic stress, life transitions, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, anger management, personality disorders, OCD and addiction. Nicole is a strong ally for the LGBTQIA community and has knowledge and experience with the struggles that may come with being in this community.
Nicole has specialized clinical training in EMDR which is an evidenced based practice for treatment of PTSD, distressing life events, and trauma. Working through trauma is a tough process and Nicole has experience and advanced training in helping clients heal from the past. Nicole also has additional training in ERP therapy which is regarded as the gold standard for treatment of OCD.
Nicole focuses on the whole person. She focuses on helping the individual see their worth and find their purpose and meaning in life. One of the most important factors in counseling is creating a positive therapeutic alliance that will help you (re)build lost connections, allowing for understanding, empathy, and a supportive environment.
She uses techniques from various sources including Adlerian Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy.
Personally, Nicole enjoys spending time with her family, attending college/minor league baseball games and local cultural events.
