Nicole’s niche leans towards working with children, teenagers, and adults. She specializes in complex trauma, depression, anxiety, and grief/loss. 

Nicole is passionate about providing a safe, caring, non-judgmental space, where individuals can share about their experiences and challenges. She believes when given this secure safe space people not only experience growth, but facilitate it as well. Born and raised in Mexico City, Nicole is an advocate of the everyday challenges of living a life of different cultures, identities, expectations, and the stigmas that arise along with it. She aspires towards empowering individuals to accept these challenges, nurturing and guiding clients to face them.

Nicole graduated from Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City with a Bachelor’s in Psychology in 2016. She earned her Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work in 2020. During her collegiate studies, she volunteered at various organizations. Her volunteer experience includes, working in schools, health care centers, and government/non-profit institutions. Each one of these placements gave her the opportunity to approach people from different backgrounds, she developed an interest towards the immigrant population during this time. Nicole has professional experience working at non-profit organizations with child sexual/physical abuse, sexual assault, and domestic violence.

​In her personal time, Nicole is getting trained as a yoga teacher and loves practicing it. She enjoys hanging out with friends, walking her dog, traveling, going to museums, concerts, and enjoying nature.
