Nikki Woods is a Creative Arts Therapist who obtained her M.P.S in Art Therapy in 2023. She believes in the importance of exploring oneself through the power of creative expression and grounds herself in holistic practices to best support meaningful work with her clients. Through the lens of her own experiences with confronting trauma in therapy, she empowers and encourages clients to be their true authentic selves by adopting a strength-based approach which fosters positive reinforcement, self awareness and tools to cope with day-to-day challenges.

Nikki has experience working with various populations whose lives were impacted by a single or multiple traumatic events to include BIPOC individuals, Veterans from all war eras and branches of service, adults, geriatrics, adolescents and middle-aged children. Her military background as an Army Combat Veteran has exposed her to various cultures, therefore she brings an inclusive and highly empathic nature into the therapeutic space.

When choosing Nikki as your therapist, she will ensure to be present, attentive and nonjudgmental while guiding you every step of the way as you embark on or continue your journey towards creative processing and healing. She strongly believes that connecting and establishing a healthy rapport together are key aspects of developing a dynamic therapeutic relationship and effective treatment.
