About Us


Nicole Thompson, PMHNP-BC, LCSW, RN

Nicole Thompson is a seasoned mental health professional with a rich and diverse career journey. Beginning as a Social Worker for the Massachusetts Department of Social Services, she honed her skills in advocating for vulnerable populations and supporting families in challenging situations. Her experience as a social worker for DSS expanded as she transitioned into providing clinical services, leveraging her expertise in various clinics across New York, Alabama, Texas, and Florida during her husband's military career. Her roles in private practice and with the Department of Defense provided her with extensive experience in addressing a wide spectrum of mental health concerns. After her time as a Social Worker, Nicole decided she wanted to be able to do more for her patients and began her journey to become a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. She gained her nursing license and worked as an ICU nurse in Tennessee, immediately beginning her studies as an NP. Currently, Nicole specializes in a variety of conditions, including patients across the lifespan as young as 3, special needs, anxiety, depression, Bipolar disorder, substance abuse, trauma, and ADHD, among others. Additionally, Nicole has been married to her husband for almost 15 years, who was active duty military. They have three daughters and their middle daughter is profoundly deaf and utilizes cochlear implants to hear, also having high functioning autism. The youngest daughter has undergone three brain surgeries due to a medical condition. Nicole shares this information to underscore that everyone has a story, and that story isn’t always an easy one to tell. She appreciates your trust in her for your mental health needs and looks forward to assisting you in reaching your greatest potential through improved mental health. It is our honor to serve you.
