Welcome

My name is Nicole Gies.  I am a licensed psychotherapist.  I graduated in 2004 from Loyola University of Chicago with a masters degree in social work.  I completed my graduate fieldwork at Northwestern Memorial Hospital's Stone Institute of Psychiatry and the Community Counseling Centers of Chicago.  I have clinical experience in outpatient, inpatient, and day treatment setting with both youth and adults with mental health diagnoses.  I am a certified grief support specialist from the University of Wisconsin Madison.  I am also certified in telemental health.

I am married with three children, and am a mother of twins.  I have been an animal lover since birth and have two dogs, a hedgehog, and fish.  I am interested in animal assisted therapy and hope to integrate animals into my counseling sessions in the future.  In my spare time, I enjoy vacationing up north and boating.
