Welcome to my website

However you arrived here, I hope you’ll feel welcome and stay a while to look around. You’ll find information about my therapy practice and I hope as a result you’ll discover whether we’d work well together.

I enjoy meeting new people of all ages and helping them find creative ways to deal with life’s challenges. And I love hearing back from previous clients about their current situation, especially when I hear that they are thriving!

Nicola Gosen 2017 fairhaven bellinghamabout me

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist, with an office in beautiful Fairhaven, Bellingham, Washington.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, Santa Barbara, CA. My undergraduate degree in education and child psychology is from the University of London, U.K. I am also a Certified Master Practitioner of NLP and a Certified Practitioner of Ericksonian Hypnosis.

Clients say they appreciate my honesty, humor, patience, creative thinking, direction, intelligence and ability to connect. I also appreciate those character traits in my clients. It takes courage to ask for support and I take that seriously.

My life experience is broad including successful careers in education, in the entertainment industry and as a website designer. I spent many years as a caregiver and have a particular interest in supporting people who find themselves in that situation. Before moving to the United States from London, UK in 1995, I worked as a psychotherapist with children, adolescents, and adults in individual, couple and group settings.
