-Morgan Harper Nichols

With 13+ years of experience working in mental health, Nicole is an expert in working with high intensity situations, such as the severity of acute mental health in an inpatient setting, as well as the day to day struggle of managing your life while battling mental health needs. Her experience across the span of her career has positioned her a leader amongst clinicians.


Nicole's expertise as a clinician is in working with couples needing relationship growth and repair, those struggling with addiction and their family members, grief for those who have lost loved ones as well as those grieving the loss and transition from other areas of life. Depression, anxiety, addiction, grief, relationship issues, family stressors, or a myriad of other concerns.  Her gentle compassion offers a beautiful space to unpack the messy parts of your life and find new ways to move through them, and make meaning of the pain so that you can grow from it and not be stuck in it. 


Her career and life experience through marriage, fertility journeys, working with parents alongside her husband's work with youth, career changes, life adjustments, and so much more allow her experience to meet her clients at any crossroads they may be facing, and help guide them through it.
