  • Nikole Klatka, MS (she/her): MFC Pre-Licensed Therapist

    Hi I’m Nikki!

    Through my own experience, I discovered that the key to improving my mental health was to improve all other aspects of my well-being. Knowing I am not alone in my experiences, I began teaching others what I had learned in hopes that they could overcome some of their mental health symptoms too. Eventually, these early life experiences lead me to becoming a mental health professional.

    In May of 2022, I received my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lock Haven University. Although I recently graduated, I have years of experience in the mental and behavioral health field working with children and adolescents, college students, and adults who experience difficulties with anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, trauma, and autism symptoms. While I have experience treating a variety of mental health conditions and symptoms, my areas of focus include anxiety, relationship issues, grief and loss, trauma, and depression. Additionally, I work mainly from a CBT approach, but also utilize solution focused and mindfulness-based modalities to help my clients reach their goals. Despite this, I will always tailor my approach to treatment based on the needs of my client to ensure an individual’s unique needs are met.

    When I’m not providing therapy, I spend my time reading, doing yoga, playing with my pup, exploring new places, bingeing Netflix and Hulu shows, and buying more plants (you can never have enough).

    Ultimately, what you can expect from me is authenticity and comforting space where you can express your inner-most thoughts and emotions and be your true self.

    Note: At MFC, if you are seeing a Pre-Licensed Therapist, know that we are very selective in our hiring process and work extremely closely with the supervising clinician to ensure their development and the quality of the treatment that they are delivering. Not all insurances will reimburse for Pre-Licensed therapists, so it is important to talk with our administrative staff to assess if a pre-licensed clinician is the best fit for you. We set the private pay per session rates for a pre-licensed therapist significantly lower than our seasoned and licensed therapists. This can mean significant financial savings when looking at the long-term costs of seeking treatment. We have found that many people will opt to see a pre-licensed clinician who is not paneled with their insurance company because the per-session rate can be lower than the copay or cost of counseling using their high deductible plans.
