Nicole believes that children have their own individuality and style of expression and communication. She believes that working with a child within its system, whether it be in the family unit, school-based setting, or social sphere, can provide and afford the individual positive social, emotional and behavioral growth. Nicole utilizes an eclectic approach integrating multiple paradigms including cognitive-behavioral therapy, family therapy, play therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. Utilizing such approaches can allow both the child and family to better recognize, identify and verbalize feelings and move towards individual and systemic harmony.
