MA, LPC, LAC
I am a Somatic, body-centered therapist and use many innovative interventions and alternative treatment programs, including EMDR, Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, IFS, and Amino Acid Mental Health Nutrition, for the treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma, addictions, radical self-discovery, igniting passions, personal, and spiritual growth. Somatic healing is holistic, going beyond traditional talk therapy to connect the heart, mind, body, emotions, and spirit. I look to the body as a wise resource, ally, and guide to tap into the inner healing intelligence we all possess through a holistic perspective. Our bodies hold a lot of wisdom that we can talk ourselves out of in our cognitive minds. I incorporate somatic awareness and movement to include the body’s wisdom in the therapeutic process. I provide empathetic care, support, and encouragement, focusing on transforming and healing traumatic experiences into empowerment, health, and self-discovery.

Nici Graves, MSW, LCSW
Medical Social Worker and Psychotherapist
Grief is inevitable for most of us. I believe in the human capacity for resilience & work collaboratively with clients on successfully living with and growing from the effects of stress, illness, loss, & trauma. Sometimes having more tools & skills to better manage daily life are what’s required, and other times deeper self healing work can allow for heavy burdens and old beliefs to transform, alchemizing experiences into integrated gifts. You have the right to enjoy a more satisfying life of creativity & fulfillment, embodying the amazing human you were created to be.
