About Nick Hayes, T-LMFT

Hello there! I am truly excited to work with you to find growth and healing no matter what we focus on. I don’t see our therapeutic relationship as a simple clinical encounter; it’s a shared expedition towards change, self-discovery, and resilience. 

Your experiences matter, we’ll figure out what you need and develop a plan to get there. This starts by creating a safe, judgment-free space where you can freely explore your life’s narrative and shape your personal goals. I truly believe with the right tools and help on your side, we can find the right way to make the change you need. My style is characterized by warmth and openness. I’m not here to sound like an academic or instructor, I want to be a genuine partner in your journey. 

I see individuals, from teenagers (14+) to adults, as well as couples and families. As an experiential therapist, I use approaches such as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS), which focus on helping you deepen self-awareness, connect with your emotions, and move forward. Your story is waiting to be embraced, let’s work together to write the next chapter.
