Nicole Sutphen, MAC, PLPC

When I look back on my story, I see God’s hand all over it. My very tall, white parents received the comment, “very lucky” from a stranger in China as she pointed towards me during my adoption. I not only feel lucky, but also incredibly blessed to be a member of the family that I have been given. I am often playfully teased by my family that I am the sensitive, over-analytical, or “nice” one in the crossfire of big, sarcastic personalities. We are opposites in appearance and characteristics, but we belong to one another. Over the years, I have come to truly love the way God has created me and the differences that I have to bring to the table. I believe that I was made to be a counselor, as I love to connect, encourage, and challenge people to become more oriented with themselves, others, and our Creator.

I work with adult women struggling with issues surrounding: anxiety/stress, grief/loss, exploring impacts of family of origin, conflict resolution/communication skills, emotionally healthy spirituality/faith issues. Another area I delight in is working with female adults desiring sexual integrity during any stage (singleness, dating/engagement, marriage, divorce, or widowhood). When working with me, you can expect compassion, empathy, honesty, and for me to hold you accountable to whatever change you wish to see in your life.

You are more loved, understood, and accepted than imaginable and it would be my honor to hear your story and help you find belonging wherever you are at.

I am married to a wonderful man, Eddie. I hope to become a mother and licensed professional counselor soon.
