Peggy McNicholes MSW, LICSW
My goal is to develop a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients to help them identify an individualized vision of their own life worth living. I use a personalized, trauma-aware approach emphasizing mindfulness, DBT skills, and a twelve-step philosophy. My background comes from a place of crisis assessments and stabilization working with children, adolescents, adults, seniors, and LGBTQ-identifying individuals.
I have a soothing calming nature with strong listening skills, insightfulness, dedication, compassion, flexibility, validation, and an emerging sense of self based on my past experiences and knowledge along with my own personal growth goals.
Hobbies: I find my strength and rejuvenation in nature by seeking out opportunities to be in the sunshine, sitting by lakes, fishing, kayaking, camping, swimming, and running. Quiet time activities include reading, puzzles, and spending time with my friends, family, and kitten.
Quote: “Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity… it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
