Nicolle Graaf, MA, LPC

Counselor Summary

Hello! I’m Nicolle!


Nikki is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Penn State University and her Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from Kutztown University. Nikki has completed the required training to practice Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and is currently pursuing TF-CBT certification. While Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the base of Nikki’s clinical orientation, she understands that no single model of therapy will work for everyone and has the ability to utilize aspects of other therapy models to be creative in working with clients to make changes, identify strengths, become empowered, and pursue their goals.

Nikki began her clinical career in 2001 at Valley Youth House providing in-home therapy to children and families where sexual abuse, mental health, and child welfare issues were of primary concern. Individual, parent, family, and group counseling was provided to youth ages 4-18 who were victims of sexual abuse and some of whom were identified as being sexually reactive. During this time at Valley Youth House, Nikki also facilitated general issue therapy groups in a high school and co-facilitated an LGBT group. In 2011, Nikki was promoted to a Child Welfare Program Supervisor. After about a year, Nikki missed working directly with youth and families which led her to pursue part-time work in an outpatient setting providing individual, parent, and family therapy. Nikki’s work with others centers around working with children, adolescents, and families in areas such as trauma, depression, anxiety, anger management, stress management, and self-esteem issues.

Nikki has successfully tackled the challenges of getting through to some incredibly resistant youth through being strengths based, building a trusting and therapeutic relationship, and being creative in her approach to working with youth. Nikki believes in a strengths based approach where she helps clients identify their strengths and helps clients to see and believe in those strengths. She believes that by helping clients identify what is going well and working for them they will become empowered to work on the areas where they experience struggles. Nikki feels that it is very important to develop a trusting and therapeutic relationship with clients to help them reach their goals.
