About Me

"One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say."

Nicole M. Palmer

I believe everyone has a story to tell, and change occurs in therapy because of the relationship between the client and the therapist.  I strive to connect with each client from a place of acceptance.  

I approach counseling from the perspective of gaining an understanding of each client's experience with respectful curiosity, not to 'fix' people, but to help build a strong therapeutic alliance.

What exactly is a 'therapeutic alliance?' It is a cooperative working relationship between the client and therapist and considered to be an essential aspect of successful therapy.

The key elements of the therapeutic alliance include an agreement on the goals of treatment, agreement on the tasks, and the development of a personal bond made up of reciprocal positive feelings.

It is my goal to provide a safe, open, and non-judgmental atmosphere where clients can be at ease to work through painful and challenging life experiences and issues.

"Nicole is easy to talk to and gets things. She is not quick to judge and is interested in getting to know you. I enjoy her calm!"


"From the first day, I started counseling with Nicole she has been amazing! She has helped me overcome certain stressful situations, taught me about boundaries, and how to be more self-aware. She always has great insight! 


"I can't effectively put into words what a blessing Nicole has been in our lives. She is compassionate, patient, honest, and truly committed to helping her clients reach their own individual potential. I highly recommend considering her services when looking for a quality therapist." 



Are there any issues or types of clients that you don't work with?

I do not treat eating disorders, substance abuse, or psychotic disorders (schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, etc.). There may be other issues that I will refer to other therapists with more expertise.

I've never been to therapy. How long are the sessions?

The length of a therapy session can vary. My sessions last 50 minutes. Occasionally, the initial session is longer, but, on average, a session lasts 45-50 minutes. Also, in the beginning, I typically meet with clients weekly. After 4-6 weeks, we will review progress and determine continuing weekly sessions or move to bi-weekly or monthly. 

Do you accept health insurance?

Currently, I do not accept any health insurance. However, you may use an FSA (Flexible Spending Account) or HSA (Health Savings Account) to pay for your sessions. Also, I'm happy to provide a superbill to submit to your health insurance company for reimbursement (at their discretion), but please keep in mind that submitting an insurance claim will require me to make a mental health diagnosis. 

Additionally, you have the right to receive a "Good Faith Estimate," which outlines how much your treatment will cost. Under federal law, healthcare providers must provide patients who don't have insurance or are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for services. Your right to receive a Good Faith Estimate includes the total expected cost of non-emergency services (you must receive it one day before your scheduled service). If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. It is important to keep a copy of your Good Faith Estimate. To learn more information, visit

Do you prescribe medication?

No. I am not a medical doctor. Contact your primary care provider or a psychiatrist if you want to be evaluated for psychiatric medication. If you are already taking medication, I can work with your doctor to coordinate care.
