About Nikki Arthur 

 

Nikki Arthur holds a Master’s degree in Professional Counseling & Marriage and Family Therapy from The Minnesota School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University. She has over two decades of experience in the mental health field; the last fifteen years providing therapeutic services to individuals & couples.

Nikki works most effectively with people who are open to increasing their connection with mind and body and a willingness to address this connection through mindfulness practices.  Mindfulness is defined by Jon Kabat Zinn as “paying attention in a particular way:  on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.”

Nikki believes utilizing mindfulness can allow clients to fully explore their emotions through the lenses of curiosity and compassion which can lead to decreased suffering and ease in dealing with the stressors that life inevitably brings.  Mindfulness also appeals to Nikki’s background in research as mindfulness continues to show effectiveness in treating a variety of clinical concerns including, but not limited to, anxiety, recurrent depression, chronic pain, and ADHD.

Nikki’s approach to therapy is systemic, collaborative and strength-based. In addition to mindfulness, her work is informed by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Polyvagal Theory and the latest neuroscience research.  Nikki utilizes these methods to increase her clients’ ability to experience their thoughts and feelings with openness and non-judgment, while practicing self-compassion.

Nikki’s special interests include working with individuals & couples struggling with depression, anxiety, parenting concerns, family/couple conflict and wellness/stress management.  She provides her clients with a safe and supportive space to explore their concerns, while working collaboratively with clients so they feel the empowerment that comes from accessing their best self.

In her free time, Nikki enjoys spending time with her husband, her children and their dog, Bella.  She also loves to read, meditate, bake with her daughters, go for walks, and listen to music.

“The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen; room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.”  – Pema Chodron
