Nicole Keller, MS, PCC, CHT
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor
I am an Independently Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor who can diagnose and treat a wide variety of mental health disorders. I received both my bachelors and master's degrees from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. I have been a practicing counselor for the past 15 years and have experience in working in both outpatient and inpatient therapy settings, as well as with mental health crisis situations in the Emergency Room at UVMC.
I enjoy working with a wide variety of ages and issues. I have experience with children, teenagers, adults, geriatrics - in individual, group, family and couples counseling. I also has experience working with those who are court ordered for counseling services. Using a nonjudgmental approach, all are welcome, whether the issue may seem big or small. I have experience with treating communication problems, anger management, domestic violence, self-esteem, addiction (drug, gambling, and porn), eating disorders, marital problems and infidelity, PTSD, ADHD, behavioral issues, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, OCD, co-dependency, personality disorders, grief and loss, post-partum issues/women's issues, parenting, self-harm, career counseling and more.
The strongest people are those who win battles we know nothing about.
I encompasses a variety of clinical tools and approaches in my therapy sessions which are completely client centered. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Reality Therapy, Mindfulness based, Solution Focused Brief (SFBT), Christian counseling and Motivational Interviewing are just a few. I believe in taking a holistic approach to working with each client on an individual level, focusing on their specific needs, wants and goals. I meet people where they are at in their process of change, and help them to make the best decisions for them in their life right now. I have a good understanding of how the mind and body are so intimately connected, and that sometimes physical symptoms can be stemming from subconscious mental health issues.
I am also a licensed hypnotherapist that treats a variety of issues through hypnosis, including anxiety, self esteem, depression, smoking cessation, weight loss and pain management. Additionally, I provide relaxation techniques, guided meditation and progressive muscle relaxation.
