Nicole Rice, MSW, LCSW

I believe that all people have the ability to create their own best life, and I would be honored to join with you in reaching your goals.  I strive to create an open and safe environment for children, adolescents and their families to be able to talk about their concerns, hopes and goals. At the same time that safe environment can encourage the child and family to process emotions and learn new skills that will help to extend that safety into the home environment. Children and adolescents can struggle to express their feelings to others which may lead to behavioral concerns.  Children and adolescents also experience difficult life changes while developing their identity and sometimes have to make tough decisions.  The positive therapeutic relationship is created and maintained through a nonjudgmental attitude of collaboration and empowerment.

My experience over the last 8 years has included work with children, adolescents and their families. Developing an individualized approach and plan for each client provides all of my clients with the best opportunity to grow and be successful.  Each plan may include any combination of individual and family sessions utilizing the most appropriate therapeutic interventions including but not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Zones of Regulation, Mindfulness and Behavior Modification.

I have experience working with children (4+), adolescents and young adults dealing with challenges associated with:

  • Anxiety/Social Anxiety
  • Depression
  • ADHD
  • Behavioral Challenges
  • Developmental Delays
  • Family Conflict
  • Life Stressors/Transitions
  • Peer Conflict/Social Adjustment
  • Self Image/Self-Esteem
  • Grief and Loss
