Nicole Garvin, LCSW
About Nicole Garvin
My life’s calling is to assist others in managing their stress, overcoming trauma and working towards their wellness goals. You are the expert of your life. Counseling is a collaborative process where we both come to the table with our strengths in order to help you on your journey.
I specialize in trauma care and recovery. I believe that all people have been through something at some point in their life that was challenging or even traumatizing that may have shaped them into who they are today. All our life experiences have an impact on us whether we know it or not. Most therapy sessions will also include some form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help you understand how your thoughts, feelings, actions and self believes are all connected. As a strengths based therapist, I will help you understand and use your internal and external strengths and resources. I also offer teaching in mindfulness, guided meditation, and gentle movements if that is suitable for you. Above all, I am guided by you in your treatment.
