Nicole Kelly | Graduate Intern

Nicole Kelly

In-Person Sessions Available

Nicole is passionate about enhancing the lives of people from all walks of life and believes we all have the power to co-create and live the life we desire. Her focus is effective communication and achieving a solid understanding of others through care and empathy. She recognizes that creating a safe environment inspires growth and connection.

She understands that partners may feel unappreciated, overwhelmed and exhausted from life stressors and the strain of trying to hold a relationship together. Nicole is ICEEFT trained in EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) which is the research based method used at Wellness. It prioritizes emotions, is short term, evidence based and considered the most effective method on the planet for couples.

Distress in a relationship is best identified when individuals feel invisible, distant, unheard or unappreciated by each other. They often find themselves stuck in a negative cycle; having the same unproductive conversations over and over again. When couples step out of their negative cycle and make sense of their hurtful patterns and interactions, they can heal their relationship.

In addition to being a member of the Wellness team, Nicole’s background includes being a Healthcare Case Investigator and Patient Experience Associate making her keenly aware of client experience and observable outcome.

Enthusiastic and adaptable, Nicole comes to Wellness as a Graduate Intern from the Marriage and Family Therapy program at Capella University and is scheduled to graduate in 2024. She received her BA in Music Therapy from East Carolina University in 2010.

As a Graduate Intern from Capella, Nicole’s services are provided at a reduced fee while she works under the Supervision of Dr. Anne Hancock and Dr. Michael Reiter.
