Meet The Therapist

Nicole Kerr

About Me:

Therapy. It can mean so many different things depending on who you ask. One thing that I think most people would agree on is that therapy is meant to heal.  As a therapist, I feel honored to be able to help each individual discover what their healing process looks like by providing a safe and supportive environment. My clients would likely describe me as friendly, non-judgmental, accepting, and laid-back. That being said, I also believe in the power of challenging people to change when I see that change is possible. Through therapy, I work to awaken in each person the three A's: awareness, acceptance, and action. I believe that with these three things, options are limitless and anything is possible. 

Therapy can sometimes be painful, but it can also be fun. I feel passionate about working with teenagers because I believe their energy and "realness" is what makes therapy fun! I also feel passionate about working with teens because adolescence and young adulthood is a critical development time in a person's life. There is a lot of change occurring during this time and it's important that teens have a private place to talk about the anxieties and challenges they face each and every day. I feel grateful to be able walk with each teenager on their journey of self-discovery. 

Outside of being a therapist and a helper, I am an active person – I enjoy running and biking. I am also passionate about eating clean and about how diet impacts mental health. I am married, and my husband and I love trying out new restaurants together. Other interests of mine include traveling and going to concerts, specifically, country concerts in the summertime.
