Mental health is a vital part of our well-being, but it can feel overwhelming to think about starting therapy. I get it and will help make the process as smooth as possible.  I am not your average therapist and you will quickly figure that out after talking to me.  I can be your greatest cheerleader but I will also ask you the hard questions that need to be asked to keep you growing and accountable to your goals.  


Self-compassion is always a theme included in all my techniques used. My experiences locally and abroad have exposed me to quite a variety of life situations. Therefore, I can truly make a safe, nonjudgmental space where we can journey together to uncover your pathway to peace & healing


I have worked internationally & locally with people ages 4-84. So lets set up a free 15 min consultation call to see if we are a good fit for the goals you are trying to accomplish at this time.  Call or text me at 312-779-0730

Insurance Policy 

We accept a variety of insurance plans and have found that most insurance companies will cover your therapy sessions.  So that we may help you estimate your out-of-pocket expense, please call the number on the back of your insurance card and explain to the representative that you are coming in for therapy with Nicole Woodcox Bolden LCSW. Ask the representative if your policy has coverage for therapy. If they say yes, then ask them the following 5 questions:

  • What is my deductible for the year?

  • How much of my deductible have I already met?

  • What is my co-insurance percent? (e.g. 90/10, 80/20 etc.)

  • Is pre-authorization required?

  • May I have a reference number for this call?

Please provide all responses to the 5 questions by your first session.
