Home 5 Our Team 5 Nicky Texeira

My name is Nicky Texeira and I am currently an intern, on my journey of completing the Master’s in Arts Counseling and Psychotherapy at Yorkville University. I use a humanistic, person-centered approach to allow for personal, self discovery. I provide the space and freedom for my clients to express themselves at a comfortable pace. Cynthia Schoppmann, the owner of CJS Psychotherapy and Consulting Services and Registered Psychotherapist, will be my supervisor throughout the process.

I bring a wealth of experience to the team, drawing from the various realms of my life as a student, parent, teacher, athlete, and reading remediation specialist. These roles have given me the wisdom to work with many people from diverse ages and backgrounds. I genuinely care for people and seek to explore who they are at the very core of their being, to gain perspective and understanding of what is occurring in their lives. I use a collaborative approach when working with my clients and I strive to create a strong therapeutic relationship that is based on respect, trust and unconditional positive, empathic regard. This relationship will be the vehicle for my clients to develop, pursue and achieve their goals. In addition, we will work through your personal obstacles and adversity, and address the issues of concern in their life. Some of these issues may include stress, race relations, bullying, family relationships and dynamics, anxiety, depression and self-esteem. I will be there every step of the way to offer support through listening, interacting, collaborating, teaching and helping you fulfill who you want to become. The possibilities are endless!

You have already taken the first step to making your mental health a priority. Let’s work together to help you feel better and become inspired to live your life authentically.
