Hi, welcome to my profile! I am Nancy Nicholson, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Michigan and Florida. I enjoy working with people of all ages who are looking for some help along their journey in life.

I enjoy encouraging others who are struggling with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, as well as life transitions and changes. I have counseled with others for more than 20 years, in many different age groups and areas, from children to seniors and those struggling with issues surrounding life changes and transitions, chronic illness, disabilities and grief and loss. As of late, I have been working with others who are feeling anxious and depressed, isolated and fearful, as many have been struggling with since the beginning of the pandemic. I look forward to meeting you and walking along side of you through your journey!

I am a trauma-based therapist, psychodynamic in orientation. I work with clients holistically, believing we are more than the sum of our parts and our trauma's. I tend to consider myself anti-diagnosis putting a major emphasis on making linkages to our pasts including prior relationships and family ties. I am also a dual diagnosis therapist believing with substance abuse concerns are composed of mental health issues and negative experiences. I also prefer but do not find necessary involvement with services from partners, husbands/wifes ect. I find the majority of clients we see also possess stress from unresolved issues with relationships, present and past.

My name is Steven Ward and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been a therapist for over 10 years and an intermittent therapy participant for 30 years. I believe in therapy and its ability to help others become their best selves. I have known since the first time therapy made a significant difference in my life, that I wanted to devote my life, time, and energy to serving and helping others by becoming a therapist. I received an undergraduate degree from Spring Arbor in Management and Organizational Development and utilized this to work my way through my Masters in Counseling, also from Spring Arbor University. I have worked with adults at all stages of life, and with more than a decade of experience I have learned strong, evidence-based treatments that offer concrete help. I engage with the real struggles individuals face, including trauma, depression, anxiety, behavioral issues, parenting difficulties, family conflicts and struggles, marital issues, and issues centered around substance use and addiction. My therapeutic approach is multidisciplinary and includes not only technique work, but cognitive, narrative, and game-based therapy interventions. My style works to create relationships that center on the importance of trust, kindness, and mutual learning. I believe that as a therapist, I have just as much to learn from you the client, as you would from me. I use this approach to create an environment where compassion, mutual learning, and a strong focus on what each client desires for themselves and their life is key. We can then create change without the work feeling burdensome or boring, but instead graceful and collaborative. As stated above, I have faith in the therapeutic process and will bring my considerable knowledge, talents, and compassion in helping you become the best self that you desire to be.

"If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story" - Orson Welles. To me, this quote is a reminder that we all have our ups and downs in life, every single one of us. Even the people deemed "most successful" still have times that if life would have stopped in those moments, they would have been left feeling as though life were unhappy. No matter your past, no matter what you are experiencing right now, we all can still have a very different ending than what we are on the path to having. I'm here to help you find that new path and to help you feel safe taking the first steps down it. Taking the first steps down the road of change is often difficult for people. I encourage you to set up an initial appointment and we will walk down that road together. I am an LMSW who has been practicing for 8+ years. I specialize in helping individuals heal from their past, gain insight and manage the present, and thrive in the future. I am passionate about working with women who are in the transitional phase of life. Whether it's a break-up, divorce, infidelity, sexual assault, insecurities, low self-esteem, healing from past trauma, infertility or loss of child, anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, or learning to love yourself I will be walking alongside you to help you through the process to get to a better place. Learn to let go of sadness and anger towards others, and self, to find your inner peace. I hope to see you in my virtual office soon.

Whether there has been a significant loss, a life transition, relational conflict, or daily stressors, we all need support during difficult times. Sometimes, however, a trained professional can help navigate these challenges and assist in facilitating positive change. We aren’t always able to recognize the underlying cause of our discomfort or find ways to overcome life’s challenges. In a therapeutic setting, we will work together to discover healthier ways for you to deal with life’s struggles, make desired changes, improve relationships, and find inner healing. Seeking therapy can be viewed as an investment in yourself. Improving mental and emotional health is as important as one’s physical health. My role is to provide a safe space and come alongside you on your journey. I work with adolescents and adults and provide individual, couples, and family counseling services. I treat depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, (PTSD), relationship issues, parenting, behavioral concerns, and many other problems affecting how we feel and operate in the world.

I have a passion for helping clients who are struggling with all kinds of (or have struggled with) relationship trauma from intimate partners or parents, including: narcissistic abuse and gaslighting, manipulation, emotional and physical abuse, codependency issues, people-pleasing, difficulty setting boundaries or having a pattern of staying in unhealthy relationships. I have helped many clients (men and women) who struggle in these areas to learn how they got to this place and can help you realize how you arrived at this place. We can work together to help you heal and learn to create and maintain healthy boundaries, increase self-esteem and self-confidence, reduce guilt, and enjoy healthier relationships. I have a unique perspective because I have dealt with (and have overcome) many of these issues in my own life. This work is very near and dear to my heart. Anxiety: Can't turn off those racing, anxious thoughts? If you are struggling with anxiety, I can help you to identify and work through some of the root causes of your symptoms. We would also work on developing practical coping and relaxation skills together, which I could show and practice with you in session. I also like to share videos, apps, and audiobooks that can help. Codependency/Relationship Addiction/Narcissistic Abuse: I specialize in helping others heal from codependency and break their pattern of being in unhealthy or abusive relationships. I also work with clients to set and maintain healthy boundaries in all areas of life. Men's Issues: I have seen many men seeking therapy for the first time. I understand that men and women differ in thinking, emotions, relational approaches, and problem-solving skills. Whether you are dealing with work stress, irritability, relationship issues, substance abuse, or need relationship advice, I will do my best to make you feel comfortable and heard. Then, we can work together on solutions.
