Nicole Frost, LCSW, CSAT, Clinical Supervisor
Nicole received both her undergraduate degree in Business and her Masters of Social Work from Arizona State University, before going on to complete one of two clinical internships at the world-renowned inpatient facility The Meadows in Wickenburg, Arizona. Here she trained directly with some of the world's leading experts and pioneers in the fields of trauma and addiction, including Pia Mellody, author of Facing Codependency and Facing Love Addiction, for Post-Induction Therapy, Feelings Reduction and Inner Child intensive training. Nicole believes in understanding the childhood trauma and dysfunction that leads to adulthood chaos using The Overview of Developmental Immaturity model.
After several years working in a trauma and addiction centre in Orange County, she has now returned to The Meadows as a CSAT to take up the position of Clinical Supervisor and lead therapist, conducting group work, staff training and individual therapy. She continues to specialize in trauma and addiction as a DBT Therapist, with particular focus on the important integration of healthy boundaries, communication and relationships in the journey towards fulfillment and healing.
Nicole offers individual and group therapy, couples and family therapy. She is also a Clinical Supervisor for those associate licensed therapists in need of board approved supervision. Her core areas of expertise include understanding how trauma impacts relationships, addiction issues, depression, anxiety, compulsive sexual behaviors, family dysfunction and codependency - affording her with a comprehensive understanding and perspective towards the complex treatment of dual diagnoses.
