    Hi, I’m Nicole. Owner and Head Therapist at Held Therapeutic Services and Proud

    Partner of Parasol Wellness Collective.

    In my office, you’re allowed to feel and express those feelings safely (laughing, crying,

    anger, etc.) You’re also allowed to not know how you feel. You’ll be met with

    compassion, empathy, real-life examples, and usually some sarcasm, if that’s your jam.

    A pivotal moment in any session is when clients acknowledge the weight of their life’s

    “stuff.” Whether it’s a complex history, the burden of trauma, or a whirlwind of emotions,

    I’m passionate about creating a safe and nurturing space for you. No matter the

    quantity of “stuff” you carry, I’m dedicated to fostering vulnerability and authenticity in

    your healing journey.

    Throughout my career, I’ve gained valuable experience in various areas, including grief

    and loss, trauma, navigating life’s transitions, providing support to LGBTQ+ youth, and

    offering Christian counseling services when requested; While working with several

    diagnoses including Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, and Bipolar for individual 10 and


    Educationally, I hold a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy, and a

    Bachelor of Arts in Community Psychology from St. Cloud State University. I’m currently

    in the process of receiving extensive training in working with Complex Trauma and

    Dissociation through the AIR Network Training Institute and have goals to pursue ADHD

    and Integrative Mental Health Professional Certifications in the near future
