Hello, My name is Nicole Kremer and my counseling background is assisting those in distress. I specialize in working with families as they cope through transitional periods in their life. These transitional periods can include but are not limited to, adding a member to the household, divorce, moving, changing schools or jobs. I like to build rapport using a variety of techniques and activities. I utilize a person-centered approach while combining cognitive behavior techniques with my clients.
Breaking the Cycle
I practice from the perspective that the problems you are experiencing are part of a greater pattern of emotions, thoughts, and actions that guide how you see yourself. Together we can uncover the root of these patterns and the core of who you are and explore their impact. The goal is to feel supported and understood in therapy and to know that you can break free from reflexive responses and change the way you feel, think and act.
Making Counseling a safe space
I have a strong belief that change happens when people are given the guidance they need to draw on their own strengths and realize their potential to live fulfilling, happy lives. I will provide an environment of compassion and support to help individuals and families overcome obstacles to move forward and thrive.
I was born and grew up in a military family. I have experience and knowledge of the added stressors to growing up in a military household. As a M.A Graduate I spent the last 3 years working for a Military nonprofit in assisting Veterans and active duty members. This has given me the opportunity to work with Military Members whom are struggling with PTSD and TBI and motivation to further my training in EMDR, which I completed in June 2019.
More about me
My husband and I are proud parents of 2 kids and the 3 cats that rule over us all. We enjoy spending the days together at home reading, painting, and watching Disney movies on repeat. We love playing outside and spend most of the summer at the pool. We are also major Game of Thrones enthusiasts. As a family we don’t get to travel often but we try to go back to my hometown, Albany NY, at least once a year to see family and friends.
