Nicola Rivers is a board-certified mental health nurse practitioner. Nicola knows that mental health challenges have biological, psychological, and social roots. That’s why she starts by conducting a thorough evaluation, exploring the patient’s situation and concerns before deciding on a diagnosis and treatment plan. She combines supportive medication management, healthy lifestyle changes, and brief person-centered therapeutic support to help identify and resolve mental health problems at their root causes. Nicola’s mission is to provide holistic, personalized, high-quality care to patients ages 14-60.
She treats ADHD, anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions, obsessive-compulsive disorder, relationship issues, self-esteem problems, sleep disorders, stress, trauma, PTSD, impulse and control disorders, and mood disorders. Nicola is a strong advocate of educating patients about their diagnoses and treatment options so they can make informed decisions about their treatment. She also cares deeply about educating the public to lessen the stigma associated with mental illnesses. Outside of work, Nicola likes jazz music, traveling, and blue beaches.
