Meet Nicole

Practice Philosophy

I believe pursuing personal growth is one of the most life-changing decisions we will ever make. Through this pursuit, we enrich our lives and the lives of everyone we have relationships with, such as our partner(s), family, friends, colleagues, etc. Life is full of challenges, and I am honored to help my clients navigate whatever stressors they may be facing to become the people that they want to be.

When working with clients, I am committed to helping them strengthen their relationships with others and with themselves. My goal is that through our work together, my clients will grow and gain a better understanding of themselves and feel empowered to become the best version of themselves and live their lives authentically. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, my approach is integrative and systemic, blending different modalities including mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, narrative therapy, along with others. My approach in my work with clients is collaborative and individually tailored to each individual and couple to meet their unique needs and goals.


Children Therapy (Ages 10-12)

As a child therapist, I am committed to creating a safe, compassionate and playful environment for children to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Children face a wide range of challenges and difficulties, including anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, family conflicts, and academic struggles. 

My approach to child therapy is based on building strong therapeutic relationships with my clients and their families. I believe in working collaboratively with parents and caregivers as needed to develop personalized treatment plans that address the unique needs of each child. 

Teens Therapy

In my work with teens, I use evidence-based approaches such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and solution-focused therapy. I help teens explore their emotions and teach them tools to express themselves in healthy ways.  My approach to teen therapy is based on building a strong therapeutic relationship with my teen client, one that is founded on trust, empathy, and mutual respect. I believe in working collaboratively with teens to identify their strengths and areas of concern, and to develop personalized treatment plans that meet their unique needs. 

Young Adults – Millennials Therapy  

Some of the common issues that millennials may face in therapy include difficulties with career planning, stress management, relationship challenges, and self-doubt. I work with young adults to help them develop coping skills, problem-solving strategies, and healthy communication patterns. 

In my work with millennials, I use evidence-based approaches such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and mindfulness-based techniques. I also incorporate elements of positive psychology and growth mindset theory to help young adults develop a sense of purpose and direction. 

Parenting Support Therapy  

Through therapy, I help parents improve their communication skills, manage their own emotions, and build positive connections with their children. I also help parents set boundaries and develop effective discipline strategies appropriate for their child's age and temperament. 

These sessions provide a supportive environment for parents to share their experiences, learn from one another, and develop a sense of connection to themselves in their roles as parents and with their child or teen.  

My goal is to help parents build strong and positive relationships with their children, and to support them in navigating the many joys and challenges of parenthood. 

Anxiety Healing  

Some of the common issues that clients may face include generalized anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks, and phobias. I believe that by addressing these issues in a safe and supportive space, my clients can develop the skills and confidence they need to overcome their anxiety and lead a more fulfilling life. 

Ultimately, my goal as an anxiety healing therapist is to help my clients develop the skills and confidence, they need to manage their symptoms and lead a more fulfilling life. I believe that with the right tools and support, anyone can overcome their anxiety and achieve their goals. 

Women’s Issues   

I am committed to helping women navigate the unique challenges and pressures that they face. Women often struggle with a wide range of issues, including body image concerns, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, and trauma. Every woman has the right to be heard, seen, and understood, and I provide that space for my female clients. I also incorporate feminist and relational cultural perspectives to help women explore the impact of social and cultural factors on their mental health and wellbeing. 

Some of the common issues that women may face in therapy include struggles with self-care, boundaries, and assertiveness, as well as difficulties with intimacy and relationships. I work with women to help them develop coping skills, self-compassion, and healthy communication patterns. 


Everyone deserves to live their life authentically and recognize the struggles that might come with doing so. I provide the space for young adolescent and teen members of the LGBTQ+ community to explore these struggles and develop a better understanding and acceptance of themselves. 

I provide individual therapy for individuals, presenting with symptoms related to:

• Children 10-19 years old

• Young Adults 

• Anxiety 


• Parenting Support Therapy  

• Self-Esteem & Body Image  

• Social Anxiety 

• Stress/Worry

• Life transitions 

• Women's Health Issues


I was born and raised in Miami and have lived in Miami most of my life, but moved north for a brief period. I’ve always been curious in nature and adventurous in spirit with a desire to explore various places and have different experiences. This curiosity encouraged me to move to Boston, MA where I spent a couple of years studying at the Harvard Extension School. I am Cuban-American and speak English and Spanish. I have always been fascinated by people and relationships and have wanted to be a therapist ever since I took my first Psychology class in high school.   

I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Florida International University and was invited to join Psi Chi (International Honor Society in Psychology) during my time there. I then earned my Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Nova Southeastern University where I was inducted as a member of the Delta Kappa Omicron Chapter of the International Marriage and Family Therapy Honor Society (DKO). 

When I am not working as a therapist, I enjoy spending time cuddling with my dog, watching a good show, reading, spending time with my friends and family, traveling, and spending time in nature and the outdoors.
