Adverse Childhood Experiences have this way of taking over your life.

You either allow it to bring you down, or bring you to service those just like you. I chose service.

Types of Services:


Reverse the Adverse is a trauma-informed care training specifically designed for educators and mental health professionals that work with school-aged urban students (grades K-12). 

The goal of Reverse the Adverse is to raise awareness of the impact that adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma have on urban students, and teach strategies to better serve such a vulnerable population.

It is offered as an in-person Professional Development,  or an online training.


Nicole has expertise and passion in serving urban students.  She uses her personal and professional experiences to captivate the audience and deliver strategies to better serve such population.

She has presented at Harvard School Mental Health Conference, Internal Family Systems Conference, NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Keystone Conference,   SSBHC (Southeastern School Behavioral Health Community) Conference and numerous schools.


As a co-author in Black Therapists Rock: A Glimpse Through the Eyes of Experts, she shares the intimate details that led her to be a motherless child, and the impact it had on her when she saw her mother’s lifeless body lying next to her.

The book addresses personal accounts of depression, trauma, abuse, toxic relationships, drug addiction, grief, and mental health in the Black community
