My name is Ciara Nichols. I am currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Governors State University. I received my BA in Psychology with a minor in Social Work from Saint Xavier University in 2018. I am certified in meditation and am and advocate for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. In my spare time, I enjoy connecting with nature and spending time with my close family and friends. Once I graduate, I hope to work with children and teens who are survivors of trauma and other crisis. Also, I plan to pursue a certification in mindfulness in order to use those techniques with my future clients as well. I am intrigued by holistic healing!
