Nikki Talley, LPC-MHSP

Nikki is a natural “people person” with a knack for making others smile. As far as client personalities, Nikki is a rare because she does well with them all! She knows how to balance warmth with “keeping it real” to help people feel comfortable, but still challenged. She believes in the power of positive self-talk and is committed to help her clients create a life they think is actually worth living. Nikki specializes in treating substance abuse and addiction, anxiety, depression, codependency, perfectionism, self-esteem issues, and trauma. 

Nikki received her Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from MTSU in 2016 and her undergraduate degree from Austin Peay State University in 2011. Nikki has several years of experience working in mental and behavioral health treatment with a variety of ages including children, adolescents, and adults. Most recently, she has served as a Primary Therapist in a professional women’s residential program specializing in recovery from substance abuse and mood disorders.

In her free time, Nikki enjoys working out, singing, watching movies, and spending time with the people she loves. She also enjoys an occasional Netflix binge.
