Nicole Lippert, LCSW

Nicole received her LCSW from USC and has been working in mental health for over a decade. She went into private practice work in 2017 because she loves cultivating deep relationships with her clients and helping them build the life they want to live.

Nicole is particularly passionate about working with clients who are LGBTQ+ identified or practice non-traditional relationship styles, such as polyamory or BDSM because she knows first hand how damaging it can be to be pathologized or simply misunderstood because of one’s orientation or lifestyle. She strives to provide a safe, supportive, and judgment-free space. She has experience treating depression, anxiety, trauma, and ADD and ADHD. Nicole takes an integrative approach to psychotherapy, combining a psychodynamic orientation with behavioral work like CBT and ACT, because she believes each client is unique and needs a unique approach. Her style is warm and supportive, but also direct and honest, fostering open communication with her clients. Outside of her private practice work, Nicole is also a board member-at-large at the non-profit IMPACT Bay Area, a non-profit that provides self-defense and self-empowerment training to vulnerable communities.
