Nicole Driffill

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, New York

Nicole believes that connection is the foundation of treatment, and strives to create an inclusive, warm, authentic environment that fosters partnership and open communication. Her goal with each person is to develop an individualized treatment strategy that celebrates the uniqueness of their personal strengths and challenges.

In her work, Nicole believes in a person-centered integrative approach that draws upon sociocultural considerations, psychodynamics, and applicable theory – along with careful listening – to develop a complex understanding of each person’s life. Building upon that understanding and identified treatment goals, Nicole develops both pharmacological and non-pharmacological recommendations, emphasizing evidence- based approaches that will help individuals live more fulfilling, satisfying, and meaningful lives.


Nicole has experience working with adults of all ages as well as children and adolescents. While she enjoys helping others walk through a variety of challenges, she has a special interest in LGBTQIA+ mental health and women’s mental health, particularly as it relates to pregnancy/pregnancy loss, motherhood, and infertility. She passionately believes that experiencing depression, anxiety, ADHD, and/or other mental health challenges can highlight personal strengths and enrich each person’s life when combined with the tools and support that mental health treatment provides.
