About Nicola

I graduated with a Master's Degree in Social Work  from Catholic University of America in 2003. I have over 15 years of experience working in university counseling centers, hospitals and outpatient clinics. I have been in private practice since 2009. 

I am a highly-trained psychotherapist who combines cognitive behavior therapy, interpersonal therapy, and mindfulness techniques. I am also trained in EMDR to process past trauma. I am warm, engaging, supportive while also challenging, and culturally humble.  

I am a member of the Greater Washington Society for Clinical Social Work, the Perinatal Mental Health Alliance for Persons of Color, the DC Metro Perinatal Mental Health Collaborative, and National Society for Social Work.  

I am currently meeting with clients via telehealth only. I am licensed in DC, MD and VA.
