Nikki Knudson-Dalal

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor

When doing therapy I mainly use a combination of, Strength Based, Client-Centered and Solution-Focused approaches.

I have been working and volunteering in the mental health/social service field since 1993. Some of my clinical experience includes working with couples and families in substance abuse clinics, group homes with adults with developmental disabilities, correctional settings, supportive housing for long term homeless, and providing group facilitation/education on chemical health. As a Licensed marriage and family therapist and alcohol and drug counselor, I am able to integrate my knowledge of substance abuse and addiction issues and how it affects relationships and the family.

When doing therapy I mainly use a combination of, Strength Based, Client-Centered and Solution-Focused approaches. By this, I mean I will assist you in coming up with your own solutions and ideas for personal insight, change and growth.

I also aim to create a safe and comfortable environment, where you can freely discuss the topics/issues in your life that you see as important and valuable to discuss with me.

My areas of special focus are in, but not limited to the following areas:

  • Couples Therapy
  • Chemical Dependency/Addiction/Recovery (Individuals, Couples and Families)
  • Health Care Professionals dealing with mental health and/or chemical health concerns
  • Chemical Health Assessments
  • Individuals who have experienced Incarceration/Criminal Justice System (Ex-offenders)
  • Relationship Issues
  • Depression/Anxiety
  • LGBTQ/Same Sex Relationships

Understanding our relational  approach can give you a sense of how psychotherapy can help. Unlike counseling and other types of therapy, it takes a perspective that’s both deeper and broader. By focusing on emotions, it seeks to discover hidden pieces of who you are and then to understand how those pieces fit together.
