Niki’s Practice Areas
In therapy, Niki enjoys providing authentic, compassionate, challenging and insightful support using evidence-based therapies as she works with her clients through a variety of challenges they face. Niki understands that the past informs the present, yet places a focus on moving forward in the moment and toward the future. All of our life experiences, positive or negative, help to create the person we are and guide us to develop tools that will allow us to thrive. She believes that words have enormous power, and with the right strategies, combined with empathy and personal determination, we can live our lives to our fullest potential.
