Nichole Mayweather-Banks LCSW (She/Her)
Owner & Visionary
I am continuously awed by the beauty, vulnerability, and strength represented by the gender expansive community. I am moved by the resiliency of this population and their brave journeys in a world, that can often be overwhelming. I am committed to focusing my work on offering gender-affirming therapy for those individuals seeking mental health support.
I graduated from Springfield College with my Masters of Social Work. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Connecticut. Through my clinical work I have seen firsthand the effects of gender discrimination on my clients' mental health. Discrimination in areas such as housing and employment creates barriers to gender expansive individuals obtaining safe, secure and affordable housing. Research shows this population is at higher risk for anxiety, depression and suicide. It is my honor to help create a sense of safety and resilience for my clients, both in the therapy room and in the community.
I use creative techniques and real-world strategies to help clients identify and remove obstacles to peace and happiness in their lives. I am committed to providing a welcoming and safe space for all clients to confidentially share experiences while working towards their personal goals.
