Nicole Mateo, LMHC, LPC, PMH-C

Nicole earned her MA in Psychological Counseling at Monmouth University in 2004. After graduation, she began working with individuals who experienced depression, trauma, anxiety and change of life stages. Nicole is licensed in New Jersey, New York, Georgia, Florida, Texas, South Carolina, and Vermont. 


Her clients experience sadness, anxiety, depression, trauma, substance abuse, divorce, school/behavior concerns, and sexual identity. 


Nicole considers her approach to be holistic in nature.  As a Holistic Mental Health Therapist, she utilizes and integrates evidence-based practices to help individuals move through their current season in life.  Part of the holistic approach to mental health include exploring and identifying root causes so we can resolve them together, stopping underlying issues from manifesting in other forms.  


As a Holistic Mental Health Therapist, she integrate trauma-informed yoga, breathwork, meditation and sound healing as holistic strategies to help create safety in the brain, body, and spirit. I use these evidence-based holistic tools in partnership with the therapeutic model(s) that address the concerns or diagnoses at the time. These techniques are integrated into the work that you and Nicole will do together when she believe it is appropriate or requested by the individual.


Nicole is passionate about helping individuals find their self-worth and value again.  Throughout the therapy process, she focuses on addressing maladaptive thoughts and behaviors. I look forward to facilitating the affirmation process for each individual on their journey to self-discovery. Being a warm and caring therapist with 15 years of experience, she is  able to create a compassionate, open-minded- yet sensitive- relationship with clients.
