Nick’s approach to therapy is rooted in the belief that every person has the capacity to change and overcome the obstacles that are keeping them from living a life they love. His personal style focuses on being genuine, supportive, honest, interactive, conversational, and solution-focused. He welcomes your feedback and input throughout the treatment process to ensure your needs are being met.
A dually licensed professional with more than a decade of experience treating mental health conditions and addiction problems, Nick brings a unique perspective to the therapeutic work at Hilltop. Areas of specialization include depression, anxiety, adjustment to life changes, self-acceptance, relationship problems with both people and food, drug use, alcohol use, and helping people find freedom from unwanted behaviors.
Nick received his graduate degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University and began his professional career in Summit more than 10 years ago. He is excited to return to practice here and once again serve the local communities.
Nick utilizes techniques from this clinical model to help you understand how past experiences may be impacting the present and gain awareness into underlying problems. This type of therapy supports you in identifying truth and finding healing on a deeper level.
Nick draws upon this framework to support you in seeing the thoughts and emotions that contribute to your behaviors and decisions. By exploring new perspectives, learning skills to evaluate things differently, and making behavior changes, you can become empowered to deal with situations in your life more effectively.
This type of therapy is designed to help you connect with what most drives you to change. Ambivalence, or uncertainty, towards change is discussed openly as a natural part of the change process. Considering pros and cons without judgment, the goal of this therapy is to bring you closer to the things you value.
