Dr. Nicole Waters is a Mental Health Specialist, has spent the last 7 years providing mental health services to school aged youth in Northern California School Districts. Nicole specializes in supporting school aged youth suffering from mental health barriers that impact their ability to gain access to their foundational educational experience. Nicole has begun taking her experience from the K-12 education system to the Graduate school level system, teaching classes for up-and-coming MFTs as an Adjunct Professor at Alliant International University, Sacramento Campus. As a person who values the idea that all children have a fundamental right to their education, regardless of the barriers they may face, working with the special education team at the school districts is very rewarding. Getting a chance to share that experience with incoming professionals of the MFT field is emerging as one of her favorite career experiences.
