About me

My name is Nicole Bakewell, and I was born in New York City but grew up most of my life in the Pocono’s. Growing up, I always had a desire to help people. I have worked with children, couples, and families for over a decade. I have been fortunate to provide clinical services to clients in a variety of settings including community mental health as well as telehealth services. I am trained and use a variety of treatment approaches tailored to meet client needs. I see myself as a mechanism that can provide necessary support to help you reach life goals and overcome challenges you may face in your life. My philosophy is centered around Behavioral and Trauma Centered and Focused. By providing a warm, caring, non-judgmental approach you will be on the path to living a more balanced life. My primary availability for sessions is Monday through Friday 5 AM to 10 PM EDT and occasional weekend, however I am available to discuss additional options if that time does not work well for you., I look forward to learning more about you and helping you identify any improvement opportunities that you may be facing in.

I am just starting work with Nicole after a year and a half away. I recall her being very helpful.

Before working with Nicole, I had known for a long time that I needed therapy but was always daunted by the thought. She has worked to calm those fears, challenged me, and helped me to work through the years of repressed memories and emotions. Crazy to me that it's only been four months, feels like it's been much longer! Would absolutely recommend her!

Nicole is doing a great job with helping me through my transition. We talk the real talk and we're not afraid to get down to the dirt of what an experience like transitioning can offer. I'm greatful for her abilities in being able to help me in my time of need. It's a tough road to travel and Nicole is right there with me. Every step of the way. Thank you Nicole!!!
