Hello! Welcome to NTB COUNSELING SERVICES. My name is Nicole Turner Beardslee LIMHP LPC LADC and I am the owner and operator of a private mental health therapy practice that is telehealth only.
I am an independently licensed mental health professional and licensed alcohol and drug counselor in the state of Nebraska and a licensed professional counselor in the states of Texas, South Dakota and Arizona.
I have been told by my clients that sessions with me are similar to 'talking to your favorite aunt'. What a nice compliment! I am truly blessed to work with a diversity of clients from many walks of life. I am passionate about helping my clients feel empowered and confident and to find healing. Scheduling an appointment, the first step, is the hardest, and I admire your courage. My clients, after the first session often tell me they wish they had started sooner.
Being a therapist isn’t just a job to me. It is a calling. I love what I do, and there is nothing more rewarding than helping others and being part of their journey. It is my mission to heal hearts, promote self discovery, comfort those that grieve, walk alongside trauma survivors, provide useful coping strategies and help my clients restore, renew and reveal brighter and more fulfilling lives. All are welcome in my practice and I ensure an accepting and safe therapy experience for all in the LGBTQIA+ community. I am committed to cultural humility and being a friendly and informed therapist.
I have been an independently licensed mental health professional for many years. I have collected knowledge in a variety of mental health areas and specialize in the treatment of trauma, depression and anxiety treatment, grief processing and substance abuse issues as well as anger management, confidence building, coping strategies, chronic medical conditions, life transitions, and codependency. I excel at helping my clients set healthy boundaries in their relationships, improve their sense of identity and meaning, manage stress and anger more effectively and adjust to chronic medical conditions.
I share with my clients that my brain is like a toolbox. I will pick and choose the best tool for the person sitting in front of me rather than taking a cookie cutter one size fits all approach. I am caring, compassionate, goal oriented, solution focused, and client centered.
Outside of my practice I am a wife and mother with six adult children. My husband and I are empty nesters who live with our two immensely spoiled Welsh Pembroke Corgi’s. We are a blended family; like the Brady Bunch we each brought three children into the marriage. It was organized chaos at times but we wouldn't have had it any other way. We are also a military family with two children being active military members and my husband a military veteran.
My hobbies include antique shopping, collecting vintage glassware, watching Wheel of Fortune, playing Scrabble, attending live music of all kids, and spending time in nature, gardening, and art museums. I am a history buff, and I also enjoy creative writing, bird watching, photography, ancestry searches, listening to vinyl records, reading and walking the Corgi’s.
