Nikkei Paul

With a background in human services and wellness professions, I am a passionate counselor-in-training with empathetic listening skills to help you feel heard, seen, and valued as a unique individual. As one who has experienced my own share of life challenges, I understand when we need someone to walk beside us and respectfully help us navigate during life’s hard moments. Having been a client in the counselor’s office, I understand the courage it takes to reveal the vulnerable parts of life.


As a military spouse, I have experienced the struggles families can face during service and I have a desire to support the family system. Life experiences have me  the value of the counseling relationship and have fueled my desire and commitment to help clients heal and experience the joy awaiting them after the storm.

A graduate student gaining clinical experience, Ms. Paul collaborates with our team under the supervision of Liberty University, Sonya Heckler Cheyne, PhD, LPC-S, NCC, and Kristin Witte-Hubbard, M.Ed., LPC.
