Nicole Barrett, LSW, MSW, is a psychotherapist who enjoys working with preadolescents, adolescents, young adults, and parents experiencing a wide range of challenges, including social, family, and relationship issues, life transitions, parental divorce and separation, depression, anxiety, attention-deficit/hyperactivity, mood, and behavioral disorders, learning challenges, low self-esteem, bullying, and school refusal.
Passionate about empowering her clients through her affable, calming, and genuine nature, Nicole takes a holistic, collaborative, and strengths-based approach to making positive, sustainable changes in her client’s journeys. She blends solution-focused therapy (SFT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing (MI), as well as creative arts and child-centered play therapy techniques.
She believes that a collaborative team approach between the therapist, client, and their circle of support is key to therapeutic success and that most progress is made when all parties (family, school, physicians, and others) work together toward common treatment goals. Her sessions are tailored to clients’ individual personalities, strengths, interests, hobbies, and needs.
Nicole has experience working in various settings through outpatient mental health, telehealth, intensive outpatient, non-profits, schools, community settings to youth, young adults, and families through clinical and previous case management professions.
