About Nicole Barksdale, LCSW

Hello and welcome! My name is Nicole (she/her/hers) and as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in California, I specialize in working with women who are struggling with high functioning depression and anxiety. Perhaps you’ve been referred to as an “overwhelmed achiever” or having “super women syndrome.” If this sounds like you, I’m here to help you find relief and rediscover your true self.

My approach is centered around cultivating self-love, setting healthy boundaries, improving communication, and practicing self-compassion. I believe that in order to achieve a happier, healthier life, it’s essential to address the root causes of your challenges. That’s why I’m committed to creating a safe, supportive space where you can feel comfortable and present in your own journey.

In my practice, I strive to provide innovative solutions that cater to your unique individual needs. Whether you’re struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, stress, or any other challenges that are impacting your life, I believe that psychotherapy can help you live a healthier and more productive life.

Through therapy, we can work together to gain a deeper understanding of your situation and discover ways to improve your circumstances. I view therapy as a process of growth and self-discovery, and I’m committed to working with you to promote meaningful transformation and recovery. My ultimate goal is to help you live a more fulfilling life.
