After studying human development as an undergraduate at San Jose State, Nikki completed the Chemical Dependency Counseling program at Centaur College. In addition to supporting families in the complex transitions of recovery, she is passionate about coaching clients toward sustained sobriety in a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment. She joined the Wellness team after working in both Case Manager and Operations Coordinator positions in residential and outpatient settings across California.
Prior to working in treatment, Nikki taught life skills and sensory integration to young children and feels her teaching experience and personal journey with recovery have fostered her commitment to helping others begin their process of growth and healing after addiction. It is her goal that clients can grasp onto the hope and genuine connection awaiting them on the other side, so that they can be restored as they move into a healthier and more fulfilling life.
