Nicolette practices as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She and her family moved to Flagstaff from Colorado in 1995. Niki has been in private practice locally since 1996. She loves working with people, by helping them cultivate their own strengths to improve their lives, through individual therapy sessions and also in a group format. With over 20 years of practice experience in her field, Niki utilizes pieces from several theoretical approaches, tailoring her work to meet each client’s unique needs. She specializes in working with adults, ages 18 and over.
As part of her practice, Niki teaches Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. This course is modeled on MBSR developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. The course is taught in a group format, meeting weekly for 8 consecutive weeks. Mindfulness is a way of waking up to your life, of learning to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life. This course has helped many people learn to consciously work with their own stress, pain, illness, and the challenges of daily life. Niki has been teaching Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction since 2003..
Niki has been licensed in Arizona since 1995. She earned a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Denver with honorable recognition in 1987. Prior to that, she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in International Marketing from the University of Colorado, Boulder. After earning her Master’s degree, Niki worked in an adolescent day treatment center, a community mental health center, on an intensive family treatment team, and for a psychiatric hospital. These valuable experiences have helped her to develop her current private practice. It is with enthusiasm that Niki brings her gifts to Mountain Waves Healing Arts.
