I’m Dr. Nicole Williams-Myers, a licensed psychologist with 15 years of experience providing therapy to clients of all ages. My goal is to provide ethical and professional care so that my clients may live daily in the service of their personal goals and values.
I am committed to creating a warm and comfortable environment for clients to discuss their needs while upholding client dignity; right to privacy; and providing current, evidence-based treatment, such as CBT, DBT, ACT, and Family Systems.
Choosing a provider can be overwhelming, so I have included some background information about my training and experience that I hope will help you to make an informed decision about whether I might be a good fit. I earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Developmental Psychology from Bryn Mawr College and completed a pre-doctoral internship in professional psychology at Friends Hospital. Over my career, I have mainly worked in a private practice setting, with about two-thirds of my clientele adults and the remaining youth and families.
Just as our work environments can shape our wellness, the school environment is an important consideration when treating youth. I have worked in private schools and consulted with private and public schools to provide therapy, interventions, and best educational practices for young clients. Additionally, I have specific training in supporting students’ unique social and emotional needs with Gifted Independent Educational Plans.
Although I am trained as a generalist provider who can treat a wide range of concerns across the lifespan, I specialize in helping to manage and reduce anxiety, stress, poor sleep, and difficulty adjusting to work, school, or other demands of social situations. I look forward to meeting with you and working together to alleviate discomfort and create a plan for change that fits your individual needs.
Dr. Nicole Williams-Myers is available for in-person therapy in Hershey, PA, and online therapy across Pennsylvania.

Many individuals feel like they are at war with their bodies. Whether it’s feeling shame, guilt, or giving ourselves critical comments about our bodies, we can be our own worst enemy. Our therapists can help you feel at peace with your body and learn to be kind to yourself.
Depression, one of the most common mental health disorders, is very treatable. Our therapists are specially trained to help individuals with depression get back to feeling like themselves again.
Life transitions encompass many things, including starting or ending a romantic relationship, changes with work or school or making any big life change, such as a move. Often we underestimate how these changes will affect us emotionally until we find ourselves struggling with the ups and downs of the life transition.
While we don’t provide couples counseling at Move Forward, many individuals seek counseling to discuss how they can have healthier relationships. Our therapists can help you learn new ways of communicating, setting boundaries, and other ways to have more positive relationships with others.
Trauma symptoms and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be debilitating for many who experience it. Recovery from trauma is possible and we have therapists who can help.
Moving into adulthood brings its own set of challenges. You may feel pressure to have a “career” or find your life partner. You may be unsure of making these big life decisions and may feel lost because you no longer have school or other adults in your life telling you what you should choose.
The period of adolescence can be exciting, but also challenging for many teens. Difficulties with friends, school, anxiety, depression, cutting, and substance abuse are all common issues for this group. Due to a lack of life experience, teens may not know how to manage these problems which is why therapy can be especially helpful.
