Balance is key to everything. What we do, think, say, eat, feel, they all require awareness and through this awareness we can grow.
My Name is Nicole French and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor that earned my Master's and Specialist degrees in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Florida. While in school I also focused on learning more about how families can influence and affect each other on a daily basis. Through my training, I was focused initially on providing crisis services and later traditional counseling services for children, adolescents and their families.
I see clients of all ages and stages of life but have focused on working with pre-teens and adolescents. I have training and experience working with a variety of different issues causing distress for clients and their families including trauma and abuse, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, family conflict, and life transitions.
Through my work, I have seen many clients that have struggled with trauma and began my training for EMDR therapy in 2014 to help my clients more effectively resolve old wounds and move forward with more positive and healthy lives. I have completed EMDR Basic Training and hope to pursue further continuing education in this area.
