Nicole Wilson, LMFT
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
LIC NO. 94855
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) at Foresight San Diego. I received my advanced standing Master's Degree in Social Worker from California State University of Long Beach. I have over 10 years of professional experience in School-Based, Medical, and Outpatient Mental Health Settings. I am certified as a Grief Counseling Specialist, Dialectal Behavioral Therapist and Addictions-Informed Mental Health Professional. My specialty areas include anxiety, burnout, codependency, dual diagnosis, coaching, coping skills, cultural/systemic oppression, grief/loss, incarceration/re-entry, psychosis, interpersonal conflict, and stress management. I utilize a Person Centered Approach to build rapport and form a therapeutic alliance with individuals. I apply Motivational Interviewing to help individuals discover their stage of change and work towards desired behaviors. I believe that every individual has personal strengths that can be incorporated into a Strength Based Approach. I utilize Exposure Therapy to encourage individuals to identify their fears and gradually introduce behavioral interventions. I understand the importance of building skills such as Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotional Regulation and Interpersonal Effectiveness through DBT. I incorporate CBT to help individuals address maladaptive behaviors, negative emotions and cognitive distortions. I integrate Harm Reduction to meet individuals where they are at in their stage of recovery. I utilize praise, patience and a non-judgmental approach to help individuals overcome barriers and stigma associated with treatment.
