About the Speaker
Nike completed her Master’s degree in counseling over 30 years ago, and her desire to serve people with behavioral health needs has taken her in a number of directions in both the public and private sectors, including psychiatric and rehabilitation hospitals, addictions clinics (both in-patient and outpatient settings). She has also provided counselor education and training, whether presenting at a national conference or provide training to clinicians enrolled in Co-occurring Clinical Competency classes. Her “counseling journey” has formed the platform on which she stands today that allows her to be a strong proponent of a Comprehensive and Continuous Integrated System of Care (CCISC).
As Clinical Director at Aquila it has afforded her the opportunity to help cultivate a culture and environment that is trauma informed and strives towards co-occurring competency. She has been able to introduce the concept of integrated behavioral health to her peers and new clinicians, thus expanding our ability to assist those who are taking their individual journeys toward long term recovery.
