Nichole Graves, LPC, LADC/Mh
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, as well as a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor/Mental Health in the state of Oklahoma. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Oklahoma State University (GO POKES!), and I furthered my studies at the University of Central Oklahoma in the Master of Arts Counseling Psychology Program. After graduating, I worked towards licensure at a mental health and substance abuse agency in Guthrie, and this is where I discovered my dream of opening my own practice. Once I obtained full licensure, my husband and I moved home to Cushing, and I began practicing locally in January 2014. I am dedicated to providing support in anyway possible to my hometown, and I am honored to have the opportunity to begin giving back to the community in which I love!
I have many passions in my work, but I specifically enjoy working with survivors of trauma. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and I utilize Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I also enjoy working with children and adolescents who struggle to manage behaviors within the classroom. While these are two areas in which I love to practice, I also work with many different individuals on ranging struggles. I enjoy working with clients to tackle whatever obstacle is presented!
