Nicole Krotinger

The first goal for Hannah’s House in 2010 was to recruit a much needed therapist for the Mad River Valley to work with children, adolescents, families, and young adults. We also needed a consultant to assist with the development of Hannah’s House and we found the ideal candidate in Nicole Krotinger.

Nicole has been a counselor for fifteen years and has had a private practice for twelve years, primarily working with people who are experiencing a broad range of emotional and behavioral difficulties. She has worked in community mental health, schools, and private practice settings in Washington County after graduating from the University of Vermont’s Masters in Counseling program in 2002.·In addition to her private practice at the Health Center, Nicole collaborates with Hannah’s House to identify families requiring assistance, has helped develop a broad range of therapeutic services for our community and serves as a supervising counselor.

Nicole’s Vision:· “I believe that people are inherently good, and that therapy can help people to realize their own abilities, to accept themselves, and to become self-actualized.·As a therapist I see it is my role to help  a person young or old become more in charge of who they are and who they want to be. Through a trusting relationship, one can begin to assert themselves, and feel independent and in charge of who they are and their choices in life. Ultimately, this feeling is strengthening, and will help to guide change and understanding in their relationships with others as well.”

Nicole’s practice incorporates elemental ideas from·Narrative Therapy,·Family Systems or Bowen Theory, Play Therapy and Psychodynamic theory.·She is a licensed Zengar Neurofeedback practitioner and trainer. Nicole is currently taking new clients, and can accept insurance or sliding scale for payment.
