Nici Richardson, LPC

License # 78941

Hi! My name is Nici and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have 5 years of clinical experience in both a private practice and acute care, trauma level hospital setting. In the hospital, I served as a Chaplain to the patients and families who were facing difficult decisions, significant losses, and in the midst of personal crises. In addition, I attended to the compassion fatigue, professional burnout, and chronic compounded grief experiences of the healthcare professionals. Similarly, in the private practice setting, I have experience of working with a variety of clients through difficult life transitions, anxiety, depression, perinatal loss, and painful seasons of grief.

During my time serving in the hospital sparked the desire within to journey into grief counseling. Both sets of grandparents passed away at a young age, and both my mom and aunt wrestled with ALS till they peacefully transitioned when I was a young woman. It is due to their incredible stories and legacies that are alive and well that I now passionately seek to work with those whose hearts ache for the one’s they have lost or the ones they have yet to know.

My counseling approach, operating from a biblical worldview, involves providing a safe, supportive, warm and encouraging environment. I believe in treating everyone with respect, kindness, and empathy. My role as a therapist, I believe is to meet you where you are, and help you to transition to where you want to be, by demonstrating understanding, patience, and unconditional positive regard.

I consider being a counselor as both an honor and privilege to have the opportunity to walk alongside others through difficult seasons, and harvest the seed of hope and healing together. Reaching out for help is a courageous, important step towards your path to healing and wholeness. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches that incorporate person-centered, narrative, and existential therapeutic techniques. I believe the most important aspect of my work with you will be to build a positive, trusting, non-judgmental therapeutic relationship in which we can work together through whatever difficulties you may be facing. I am dedicated to utilizing a holistic, integrated approach that values what is significant to you and will seek to be genuinely compassionate to where you may emotionally and spiritually be.

There is an old saying that I sincerely believe; ‘the healing is in the telling.’ There is true power when we are able to share our story, and be heard. My hope and prayer is that you find the help you have been looking for. If you feel I would be a good fit, please contact me at your convenience, and know I look forward to connecting with you soon!
