Nicole and the Holding Hope office have done an incredible job making the therapy process not only easy, but something my wife and I look forward to. Nicole is kind and compassionate and has a depth of understanding and experience that shows in her ability to connect and understand the pushes and pulls in our marriage. Starting any new therapy can be daunting, especially under the circumstances that most couples find themselves seeking help – Nicole was able to quickly break down our barriers and get to the root of our problems.
Working with Nicole has given me a greater understanding of myself and my thought process. Our conversations have created clarity around emotions and experiences I’ve struggled to comprehend. I am proud of the work I’ve done with Nicole and am grateful for her patience, compassion and support.
Nicole is empathetic, professional, kind, and I really can’t say enough positive things about her and our sessions – she picked up my story right in the middle, right when I was trying to cope with and understand something that was actively painful and stressful and ongoing. She lets me take sessions at my own pace, asks useful and insightful questions, and makes me feel very comfortable showing up to session in whatever state I am in, and lets me lead the dance of whatever I need on that specific day.
I started family therapy with Holding Hope in May at the suggestion of my daughter. I was reluctant at first because I had never been consistent with
counseling before and it can be uncomfortable to express painful emotions and listen to how others feel about you. As the sessions continue, I look forward to them and feel unburdened and emotionally free because the issues are being addressed and new insights and healing are coming to light. Our therapist Nicole is kind, experienced, and insightful.
Nicole is kind, warm, and working with her has been a great experience. I started
therapy to strengthen my relationship with my mom. I could feel Nicole’s sincerity and patience as we continue to open up about parts of our relationship that are not always easy to acknowledge. After only a few months, I’m feeling more confident in my mom’s and my ability to work through difficult issues together, whenever they may come up in the future.
