My aim as a therapist is to enable and encourage my clients to bring their entire selves into the room: behaviors, memories, bad habits, lofty dreams, a broken heart, prejudices, triumphs…everything. It’s my responsibility and incredible privilege to assure my clients that anything they share with me will be met with empathy and compassion. Any progress made in the therapy room starts there.
I received my MA from the Michigan School of Psychology. My graduate research included perinatal loss, ADHD in adult women, and effective psychotherapy for older adults. My practical training included psychological assessment and therapy for adults, adolescents, and couples.
I see clients on weekday evenings and currently only via telehealth.
Therapy can provide an alliance that helps you achieve harmony between your ideal reality/self with your real self in order to promote healing. I have experience working with older adults, adults, and young adults with a wide variety of living circumstances, such as difficulties with self-esteem, relationship problems, anxiety, and depression. My motivation as your therapist is to promote your strengths and hold a space where you can openly express yourself while feeling genuinely understood.
I received my Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from the Michigan School of Psychology in 2021. I generally approach therapy with a Humanistic-Existential frame to ensure treatment is person-centered and holistically targets specifically what you feel is most important.
The training I received from the Michigan School of Psychology Clinic creates a warm environment with a foundation of compassion and understanding. I am dedicated to helping you experience a fulfilling and meaningful life. If you are experiencing difficulty, I encourage you to reach out for support along your path of personal growth.
There is an important connection between mind and body, and I aim to treat the individual as a whole. As a therapist, I operate from a biopsychosocial framework, and utilize cognitive behavioral and solution-focused approaches to help clients achieve their goals and develop effective strategies for symptom management.
I provide outpatient psychotherapy to teens and adults. I have extensive experience with psychological testing, and conduct psychological assessments with individuals of all ages. I received a Master’s Degree in Clinical Health Psychology from the University of Michigan- Dearborn, and completed a 12-month practicum at Henry Ford Health System’s surgical weight loss program. I am currently licensed as a Limited Licensed Psychologist (LLP) in the state of Michigan. My current availability is Tuesday and Friday morning, afternoon and early evening.
Everyone’s experiences and paths are unique. Every journey is its own struggle. My main goal is to connect with my clients as a person, help them feel understood and support them through their journey. I strive to use the therapeutic techniques most compatible with the client’s characteristics and needs. I have extensive theoretical training and practical experience in psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapy, humanistic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy, and dialectic behavior therapy, and I can work effectively using a short term, more focused approach, as well as an open ended, exploratory approach.
I have over 14 years of experience working with diverse populations including young adults, geriatric clients as well as clients with Severe and Persistent Mental Illness and Mood and Anxiety disorders. My approach is warm and accepting and I will work with clients in developing tools to learn coping skills as they move forward through their life’s journey.
I graduated with a Master of Science Degree from Pittsburg State University in 2001 and have since worked with adults and young adults in community mental health and University settings. I am multilingual and able to converse fluently in English, Hindi and Telugu. I see clients Monday through Thursday 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.
Raising children can be difficult – there’s no manual, and there are often unforeseen bumps in the road. I work primarily with families to help create a healthier and more functional family dynamic. Each child is different, and each family they are a part of is unique also – I make every effort to tailor your therapy to you and your family’s needs.
When issues such as a learning disorder, a physical disability, ADHD, or autism spectrum disorder are introduced, a parent’s job can become overwhelming – I’m here to provide the support and resources needed to help your child, and to get your family back on track.
Entering into therapy is one of the most important decisions you can make. That commitment to self-care is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and your loved ones, and it is a path I’ll walk with you. Call or email today!
Dr. Law has a diverse set of experience in outpatient, university counseling, multicultural, LGBT issues, grief and loss. Living in Brazil and conducting seminars on the influence culture has on business practices sparked her passion for multiculturalism. She believes we are made of a combination of cultural, biological, emotional and interpersonal experiences that all play an important role in who we are today. Nicole has a way of making people feel comfortable talking about almost anything and believes that therapy should be a collaborative experience between clients and therapist.
Dr Law has degrees in both literature and psychology and describes them as two different perspectives on the human experience. She received her masters and doctoral degrees in clinical psychology from the Michigan School of Professional Psychology where her dissertation research focused on struggles of miscarriage and pregnancy loss. Looking at problems from a biological, social and interpersonal perspective allows Nicole to find treatment options that are tailored to each individual.
My practice is founded upon a dedication to mental wellness and I work with people committed to achieving life-congruence by bringing into balance their past histories, present needs and desires, and future goals. I believe therapeutic growth is developed through an authentic relationship between patient and practitioner to address both the surface symptoms present and the underlying stuck patterns which maintain incongruence. My therapy approach involves a collaborative process with the patient as an expert in their experiencing of the world joined with my expertise in modality and method, supervised by Nicole Law, PsyD, LP.
I practice from a humanistic-existential orientation which integrates cognitive and behavioral techniques with a dynamic understanding considering the context of an individual’s self-narration. I believe that well-being and being well is within reach, and that empathic guidance is an essential agent to actualize potential into success. I work with a range of presentations and patients. My passion is in guiding emerging adults and college-age persons through to elders along life transitions and self-exploration. I see patients on Mondays and Thursdays between 9 AM – 2 PM, and am looking forward to making time for us to connect and discuss our journey together!
