You have arrived at Better Help which means you are searching for a way to address some issues you have already identified are there. You have taken the first step and you should feel proud of yourself for being here! Connecting to the right counselor can be an overwhelming task. I'd like to explain more about myself to help you in that decision.
I have been in the field of social work for 20 years and I hold a license as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I work from a strengths-based, solutions-focused, client-centered approach. Meaning that I firmly believe in the capacity for individuals to solve their own problems - they just may need a little push and direction in seeing the goals and how to obtain them. I have worked within all areas of social work practice to include public, private, and non-profit. My specialty areas of practice are abuse and neglect, anxiety/depression, work/life balance, mood disorders, co-dependency issues, and issues related to military, veterans, and dependents. The feedback I receive from clients are that they find me caring and upfront, the communication is more of a collaboration, and I assist well with identifying issues and helping to identify possible ways to navigate the situations, learn about yourself, and interact with the world.
I can interact with you via all modes of communication; however, I have found that those that participate in video sessions believe there is more connection for the therapeutic relationship and helps me to get to know them better. The majority of my availability is in the evening and weekends; however, with enough notice, I am available to schedule during the workday.
I know how difficult it is to find a counselor you can connect with and feel secure in talking about your concerns, but I'd be honored to offer that support as you work through your journey.

Nicki is really estelar in her approach. I have experienced couples counseling in the pass but she is dynamic and leaves us with plenty of tools to use during the week. It feels like things can move forward with her guide.
