Nicole Thorsten, MSW, LGSW MENTAL HEALTH PRACTIONER

Life can throw us curveballs but you don’t have to figure it out alone. Whether you’re seeking support with life stressors, are reconciling with past experiences, or are struggling with symptoms of anxiety or depression, I will work in collaboration with you to overcome these challenges. Having worked with adults, children and their families, I specialize in exploring emotional and behavioral concerns to provide support that’s unique to each person, through a variety of researched and clinically proven approaches.

I enjoy working with all ages and multicultural backgrounds and listening to each person’s unique story. I have first-hand experience working with children in transition, as a result of divorce or loss, as well as people experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety or trauma, most often in underserved communities.

I am under the licensed supervision of Jessica Anderson, LICSW, as I complete my Graduate Degree and work towards obtaining my clinical licensure.
