What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. As a strength-based therapist, I understand that at any given moment every client is trying their best to accomplish their goals, and that success can often come by helping the client identify their strengths and how to use them in new and creative ways.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Nikki Budd is a Licensed Professional Counselor with 8 years of experience in the mental health field and 4 years of providing therapy. She enjoys helping adolescents, adults, couples, and families from diverse backgrounds overcome the challenges they face and accomplish their short-term and long-term goals. Nikki specializes in depression, anxiety, trauma, life problems, interpersonal issues, stress management, and parenting issues. Nikki completed her Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Duquesne University. She uses a variety of treatment approaches including person-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, and reality therapy. Nikki understands every client comes to therapy with their own motivations and unique challenges and strives to create a partnership with each client to develop a therapeutic relationship that will support them in meeting their goals. We all go through periods where life may not be exactly how we'd like it to be, which are often accompanied by a readiness for change. While some may have a clear understanding of the changes they'd like to see, others may simply feel stuck or be unable to put the changes they'd like to make into words. Nikki is confident she can help you cope with life's trials and accomplish your goals regardless of which camp you fall into!
