Testimonials

"I was dissatisfied with the level of my relationships and just feeling blah. Nicole listened but was also instrumental in motivating me to make effective changes in my life and creating the types of relationships I wanted and now have."

- Chris B.

"Nicole is one of the most compassionate, insightful individuals I have met. I was resistant to beginning therapy, she made the process comfortable and was such a support to me. I highly recommend her!"

- Alex R.

Our son was having fits of frustration and physically lashing out at school. We were in need of help and I am so glad our search lead us to Nicole Botaitis, MFT. I randomly selected Nicole's name from a directory, and it's such a blessing that I did. She was extremely insightful and offered great perspectives on my situation. I truly felt as if she understood what we were going through, and not just reciting babble from a textbook. She is so personable and very REAL. Every week, I felt as if I was meeting with a dear friend. Never did we feel judged or embarrassed, just relief and understanding. Her approach was as smart as it was kind. We ALL learned so much our time with her and I hope to be able to continue monthly sessions for "tune ups". I feel more confident as a parent and I'm even more in love with my family than ever. Our son is doing great and as parents we are better than ever and have more tools to help our boy grow.

- Crystal S.

Compassionate, honest, open minded and trustworthy are a few words I use to describe Nicole Botaitis. She listens with an empathetic ear and without judgement. Her easy going nature sets her at ease and makes you comfortable to open up. She knows when I'm holding back and asks the right questions to help me put my thoughts into words. I am not the best at opening up and communicating but Nicole has taught me how to be better. She genuinely cares about people and is committed to helping them succeed in life.
