Mrs. Nicole Gaines
Psychotherapist, LPC, NCC, CCMC
In both my coaching and counseling styles, I am very accepting and non-judgmental. My greatest passion is instilling hope, direction, and purpose in my clients. In terms of counseling techniques, they vary based on each client’s needs but my foundation is rooted in the humanistic theory of existential therapy. This form of therapy focuses more on the present and future rather than the past and on finding meaning and purpose in life. This doesn’t mean we can’t talk about the past, it just means that we will spend more time working towards goals that will help you progress faster.
I have been counseling for over 7 years and have been counseling online via webcam for the past 2 years. Online counseling is a great way to cut out drive time and have your session in the comfort of your own home or wherever you prefer. Common topics I help range from managing symptoms of PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Relationship Issues, Adjustment/Transitions, Military, Family Conflict, Performance Counseling (Athletes) and helping to discover my clients’ Life Purposes.
Leading an active sports lifestyle, I believe in the influence of getting involved at at early age in sports/interests/hobbies. I also understand the demands of excelling within the extreme sports world and I enjoy helping athletes find their balance while encouraging them to discover their highest potential. If you surf, skateboard, race motocross, wakeboard or snowboard we might have something in common!
