Speaker

Here’s what attendees at Harvard School Mental Health Conference had to say:

“Powerful presentation! Loved this lady she was awesome..down to earth real truly focused on the students and gave great information that will be used.”  

“Great, enthusiastic, and inspirational speaker. Excellent use of examples and ideas to try.” 

“This was a great presentation – perhaps my favorite of the conference. She was a great presenter, and had practical strategies for all types of practitioners – even teachers! I came away with so many ideas to present to my district for classroom and school wide strategies for helping our students (who aren’t even urban) in order to improve our school culture at large.”

Nicole offers Keynote Speaking and Workshop trainings for urban educators and mental health professionals serving urban students K-12. The mission of her work is to raise awareness, and teach educators how to better serve urban students impacted by adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma. In her talks, she teaches simple strategies to better serve such a vulnerable population.

As a co-author of Black Therapists Rock: A Glimpse Through the Eyes of Experts, she uses her book to talk to students that need to be inspired by her personal story of growing up in poverty and having adverse childhood experiences of her own. She engages the students by being vulnerable, empathetic, and relatable.
