About Dawn Nichols

I am committed to providing compassionate and effective counseling services with Elite DNA Behavioral Health, with a focus on individual and couples counseling, adolescent counseling, relationships concerns, women’s issues, self-esteem, and family and social challenges. I bring a wealth of experience and expertise to my practice. My theoretical orientations are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Persons-Centered Therapy.

Specializing in fostering healthy relationships, my therapeutic approach is rooted in empathy, patience, and perseverance. I understand the complexities of interpersonal dynamics and am dedicated to helping couples navigate challenges, via the Gottman Method, which includes improving effective communication and emotional regulation, conflict management skills and techniques, and building stronger emotional connection. I create a safe and supportive space where partners can explore their feelings, develop coping strategies, and work toward positive change together.

In my work in women issues, I address a variety of concerns, including self-esteem, establishing empowerment, and effectively navigating life transitions. I am passionate about supporting women on their journey of self-discovery and personal growth to include providing guidance and encouragement every step of the way.

I recognize the impact of family and social issues on mental health and takes a holistic approach to address these challenges. With a focus on systemic dynamics, I collaborate with individuals to understand and subsequently navigate the complexities in their social/family environment.

One of my strengths lie in my ability to meet clients where they are, offering empathy and understanding throughout the therapeutic process. My patient and persevering nature allows clients the time and space they need to explore their concerns and work toward meaningful change.

I invite patients to embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing. Whether you’re seeking support in relationship issues, couples therapy, self-esteem, or family and social dynamics, I am here to guide and listen with empathy, patience, and a commitment to positive change. Take the first step toward a healthier, more fulfilling life by reaching out to Dawn with Elite DNA Behavioral Health.
