Nicole Brighton, MFT-T | School Based Therapist

    Personal Statement: I believe the need for connectedness and positive relationships is at the core of all human beings. The connections and relationships one creates, play a major role in all parts of a person, including how a person sees him/herself, perceives the world, behaves, interacts, and responds. As a therapist, I want to be a positive connection and model a positive relationship for the children and families I have the opportunity to work alongside. I believe connectedness can truly change a someone’s life, and might even, be something that can grow exponentially.

    Fun Facts about You: I was born on the 4th of July, but not in 1776. I have twin boys, George and Miles. I love being outside, especially if sun and water is involved. I learned to water ski (on two skis) when I was 26, and then at 30, I learned to slalom ski (on only one ski).

    Why did you choose Tanager Place? Right away I could feel the energy and dedication of everyone at Tanager Place. A mission of helping those children and families more in need, spoke to a strong belief of mine as well. Plus, as a former teacher, I was drawn to the many benefits to providing therapy services within the school day for students and their families.

    Therapeutic Style: Systems, narrative, expressive arts, Adlerian // My therapeutic style changes depending on the personality of the client(s) I am working with. I tend to bring energy, compassion, and warmth to each session. I like to be inviting, playful, and engaging especially with the students I see in the schools. Building a positive, professional relationship with whomever I am working with is essential to my work with children and their families
