About D. Nicole Sautman, MSW

Nicole emphasizes clients' active engagement in therapy, holding the conviction that everyone possesses unique strengths, even if these strengths may not be immediately apparent to the individual. Therapy, in her view, is a collaborative venture where both she and the client work together to gain insight, overcome obstacles, and achieve positive change. To facilitate this process, Nicole aids clients in mobilizing their strengths through evidence-based interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skill building, and mindfulness.

Her areas of expertise encompass enhancing self-esteem, treating depression, addressing addiction, and instilling hope. Nicole frequently works with individuals within the LGBTQIA+ community. Her office is equipped with art supplies to facilitate self-expression.

A graduate with a Master of Social Work from the University of Alabama, Nicole has a passion for art and music. Inspired by Mr. Rogers, she expresses her commitment to helping others through her collection of cardigans.
