Nicole Jenkins (Associate Therapist)

Nicole Jenkins is doing an one year masters level internship at the Center for Growth: December 2020-November 2021. She specializes in working with couples and individuals.

Nicole Jenkins’ (she/her/hers) counseling philosophy is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Eclectic therapy. The eclectic approach allows her to glean from various theories and present a more tailored treatment plan for clients. She believes in relationship building and partnership with clients as they courageously make the journey through self-discovery and growth. She believes there is a connection between what we think and how we act and feel. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps one tune into that relationship between thoughts and feelings.

Nicole Jenkins is currently working towards a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Walden University. Before she started the graduate program, she worked one on one with students in the public and private school setting. She assisted them behaviorally and academically. She has also been a practicing musician for more than 15 years. These experiences have allowed her to interact with people from a variety of races and ethnicities. When she is not working on my graduate studies, she can be found enjoying the expressive arts. Music, art, and cooking are a few of her favorite ways of relaxing, along with getting lost in a good book. Each experience and activity have helped her look at the world through a lens of discovery, acceptance, caring, and openness. She will endeavor to bring this into her counseling environment.
