Nikki values empathy, genuineness, and compassion in the therapeutic relationship. She utilizes mindfulness-based cognitive therapy in her work. Having been trained in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Nikki enjoys working with clients struggling with anxiety and OCD. Nikki also brings a client-centered and wellness perspective with her clients, which involves viewing an individual as a whole and helping an individual reach their fullest potential.
She received her undergraduate degree in psychology from The Catholic University of America. During her undergraduate years, she worked as a research assistant studying the effects of social stress on individuals.
