About Nicola

During the COVID-19 pandemic, I am seeing clients via telehealth sessions only. I hope to return to my office as soon as it is safe.

I am a highly-trained psychotherapist who combines cognitive behavior therapy, interpersonal therapy, and mindfulness techniques with a warm, engaging style.

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