    Licensed Family Therapist

    Nicole is a dedicated and accomplished professional with a multifaceted background in the healthcare industry. After serving in pivotal leadership roles at a managed care setting for several years, she made the conscientious decision to pursue full-time clinical work, driven by her unwavering commitment to making a positive impact on individuals’ lives.

    In her role as the Mental Health Director at a Medication Assisted Treatment Center, Nicole provided invaluable support to clients seeking help with opioid use disorders. Her compassionate approach and dedication to their recovery journey significantly contributed to their healing and well-being.

    Nicole’s recent focus has centered on addressing neurological conditions, including tinnitus, misophonia, and hyperacusis at her private practice in Minnesota. Her dedication to empowering individuals living with these conditions has offered them a path towards healing and an improved quality of life.

    In 2017, Nicole connected with Dr. Jason Leyendecker to further her understanding of tinnitus and other sound-related conditions after witnessing the profound impacts on clients she worked with at her private practice. Dr. Leyendecker and Nicole have since joined forces to create an integrated behavioral health treatment model at Audiology Concepts, where clients can work directly with both an audiologist and a mental health professional. This holistic approach to treatment addresses both the emotional and physiological aspects of tinnitus, highlighting their dedication to comprehensive care. Nicole’s expertise has led her to become one of the presenters at the tinnitus seminar offered at Audiology Concepts. In this capacity, she shares psychoeducation, coping strategies, and hope, providing valuable support to clients attending the seminar.

    Throughout her career, Nicole has honed her expertise in a diverse range of therapeutic modalities to guide her clients on their unique journeys. These modalities include Eye-movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Interventions, Family Systems, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Havening Techniques, and Attachment-based treatment. By thoughtfully integrating these approaches, Nicole tailors her treatments to meet the specific needs of each individual. Nicole’s commitment to staying current of the latest developments in her fields of expertise ensures that she continues to provide the most effective and evidence-based interventions available.
