It is by understanding our relationship with ourselves and how past experiences contributed to the recreation of our family-of-origin dysfunction in adulthood, that we can begin to seek solutions for change.

So often we find ourselves looking back and asking ourselves

How Did I Get Here?

Every time a client walks through my door, whether it be for an initial consultation or after a year of weekly sessions, I have a tremendous amount of respect for them.  Through my many years of working as a therapist, I have come to believe that the very behaviors and belief systems that often drive people to seek help, began as resourceful coping mechanisms which are now harmful or simply no longer helpful. To decide to change these patterns is an understandably daunting step, and I have great admiration for those who choose to take that risk.

My goal is to meet you where you are and to help you move in the direction you want to go, providing support and insight along the way as you start your journey towards healing.

“Honestly, I could write a book on how Nicole Doyle reached out and pulled me out of the darkest place I had ever been but, I will keep it brief.  I had spent the last fifteen years bouncing from some of the finest mental hospitals,treatment centers, and psychiatric professionals.  I reallly felt this was my last shot.  I flew two thousand miles and was suddenly under the finest care I have ever experienced.  Nicole told me I was wrong when I was, she told me I was right when I never thought I would hear this or believe it again.  She has made sense of things that I never thought I would understand.  She has taught me how to fight to get my life back and how to hang on when I’m losing my grip a bit.  I would send my children to Nicole if it were geographically possible, I would trust her with my most beloved.  She is an amazing  woman and I am so grateful to have her in my life.”

Client Testimonial #1

“When I came to Nicole, I was both wary and weary after years of therapy and treatment for a long list of things I couldn’t even keep count of.  I was wary of the world, weary of myself, and I didn’t believe anyone could help.  I knew as soon as I stepped into her room that this was a safe place. She surprised me immediately with a level of perceptiveness that is hard to find, and she has met me at my pace, every step of the way. She has given me a sense of firm ground when I felt I was drowning, and I have never encountered such quiet acceptance in the face of the things I was most afraid of talking about. Her dedication comes through in everything she does, and her empathy and intuition have been a gift for which I will always be deeply grateful.”

Client Testimonial #2

“Nicole Doyle is the most the direct and insightful therapist I have ever worked with.  Our sessions focus primarily on recovery from addiction, shame reduction, esteem building, and the development of healthy interpersonal relationships.  Her genuinely empathic approach to therapy transmits hope and optimism, inspiring me to establish and achieve realistic goals every week.  In the two years I have been working with her, I have seen immense growth in my recovery, my confidence, and my relationships. Nicole not only helped me realize that I deserve a wonderful life, but also gave me the tools to make that life a reality.”
