Looking for an Imago-Certified Couples Therapist?
Listen, I get it, relationships are a journey - and sometimes it’s not a straightforward path. They require work, communication, honesty, and, most importantly, a willingness from both partners to learn new ways of being. Maybe it feels like you don’t know where to start. Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed. I want you to know that this is a normal stage in your relationship journey that we all go through, even therapists (ask me how I know!).
With over 22 years of practicing as a therapist, consistent and ongoing professional development, and eight years ago becoming certified in Imago Relationship Therapy, I’ve learned some things along the way about how to guide and support couples in creating connection, insight, and vitality in their relationships. I know that it doesn’t have to be overwhelming or negative. I also know that small, sustainable changes can have a really positive impact on a relationship over time. If you and your partner are both ready to learn tools that will help open communication, foster empathy for one another, and reframe conflict as an opportunity for growth, then let’s chat. I’d be honored to walk this journey with you.
HOW CAN IMAGO RELATIONSHIP THERAPY BENEFIT YOU + YOUR PARTNER?
Learn to communicate with your partner in a way that makes them feel heard and understood (and vice versa).
Use sessions as a valuable opportunity to feel reconnected and more passionate and joyful in your relationship.
Understand how to reframe and transform relationship conflicts into valuable learning opportunities and increase empathy.
Learn about your nervous system and how it can affect feelings of safety within yourself and your relationship.
Is Couples Therapy Right for You?

You’re having trouble moving past a conflict with your partner

Still not sure?
I’m a seeker at heart, drawn through curiosity to have a deeper understanding of the world, the people around me, and myself. I’m constantly learning - in my career and hobbies - and I love the mental challenge of putting the pieces of a situation together, like a puzzle. I’ve found, through working with couples over the years, that I have an intuitive sense of being able to “hear what’s beneath the surface” of a relationship. My gift to you is being able to reflect that back in such a way that you feel deeply seen and understood. As an Imago Relationship Therapist, I love helping couples feel present in their relationships and lives. I’m committed to empowering you to own the tools to better your relationship journey - and to embrace conflict with curiosity and an open heart.

What Couples and Colleagues are Saying....
"We have seen a few different marriage counselors in our 26 years together. Nichole is far and away the best. The work we did with her - grounded in the Imago Therapy model - was transformative and healing. She was an innovative and deeply thoughtful partner in the hard work of cultivating a more loving and healthy marriage."
