Nicole Bradley is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Expressive Arts Therapist, and a Retired Diva 💁🏻. She is inspired by the bold and colorful energy of people and is dedicated to helping others jump into their greatest and most confident selves!
I developed Express Yourself Creative Counseling to go beyond the "therapy couch" and those Freudian conversations about your mother. Therapy is no longer taboo, and self-care is in! This process isn't just about listening to you for an hour and then sending you off into the world to figure out it. It's a collaborative and creative process of understanding what the body, mind, and heart are missing. Together we will explore your story and identify the parts of you that are needing attention. Your feelings matter. Here, they will be acknowledged and cared for.
My job is to help shatter those negative thought patterns that shackle us to unreasonable expectations and pressures that bring us down. While I use the creative arts as tools in my work, it is not necessary or expected to be an artist or engage in art-making. Creative counseling, in my book, is using whatever tools we have available to create a plan of action for recovery, stability, and hope. Through imagination, improvisation, and creative thinking, we can consider the possibilities of what direction you want to go next in this chapter of life. So come in as you are and we'll start that plan together!
