Stephanie Nicolas is a licensed mental health counselor offering services to adults in New York. She has a variety of clinical interests; however, she specializes in homebound/chronic illness, self-esteem, anxiety, life transitions, medical illness and disease management.  In her practice, Stephanie’s approach to care is eclectic with a foundation in person-centered, goal-oriented, and strength-based perspectives. She provides strength-based, client-centered, acute crisis assessment, intervention, referral and counseling to assist clients to overcome their life challenges. She also encourages her clients to tell their stories and tap into their individual strengths. 

Stephanie’s interest in mental and behavioral health care stems from her long-time interest in psychology, the mind and the brain. In college, she pursued medicine and thought that she was going to become a doctor. However, during her undergraduate years, she became severely depressed, and her grades suffered terribly to the point where she was at risk of expulsion. She decided to change her major and studied psychology insteadAfter graduation, she received her degree in counseling and has never looked back. 

Stephanie is a quadriplegic and proud Haitian American. She enjoys collecting motivational quotes in her spare time and has published a children’s book. She’s the oldest of three and orange is her favorite color.
