My name is Nicole Starr and I have over 16 years of doing psychotherapy. I have worked with agencies as well as a private practice setting. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California. I have worked with groups, individuals, families, and couples in my years of practice. I also have experience of working with criminal justice involved persons who also have mental health issues, or need assistance with reintegrating back into society. I pride myself on being culturally sensitive and aware of racial differences and how important this is with an individual's life experience.
My treatment modalities offer a wide range of techniques that are uniquely tailored and designed for each client's needs. I bring a wealth of knowledge with my treatment and have a vast knowledge of resources that can enhance the work that I perform with my clients. There is no one approach that works for everyone, so it is important that I take my time in getting to know my clients. I take my time in developing a plan so that I can be present with my client as we move throughout the therapeutic process. I am intentional with each and every client and feel it is important to validate whatever they bring into the therapeutic relationship. In my work with couples, I take an assessment to make sure to include one on one counseling if necessary.

Nicole is incredibly personable and friendly. She is a great listener and gives great feedback. We are very happy that we found her and feel that she has been really invested in helping us.
Nicole is fabulous and started solving our problems immediately. She is very flexible and helpful.
Nicole has been quite amazing with my therapy. She has focussed on areas that I need help with. She has summarized things well for me. And whatever she has inferred from my sharing have also turned out to be truly working out that way in the real life.
