About Nikole Klatka

Hi, I’m Nikole Klatka (Nikki)!

About Me

I have dealt with anxiety symptoms for as long as I can remember. Shaking hands, sweaty palms, gasping for air, and racing thoughts became part of my typical daily life. However, as I grew older, I became increasingly frustrated with how my anxiety was starting to take over.

After numerous therapists, endless years of research, and trying out different coping mechanisms, I discovered that the key to improving my mental health was to improve all other aspects of my well-being. Knowing I wasn’t alone in my experiences, I began teaching others what I had learned, hoping they could overcome some mental health symptoms too. Eventually, these early life experiences led me to become a mental health professional.

My Experience in the Mental Health Field

In May 2022, I received my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lock Haven University and became a National Certified Counselor. Over the years, I have gained experience in the mental and behavioral health field, working with children and adolescents, college students, and adults who experience anxiety, depression, ADHD, and autism symptoms. Although I have experience treating various mental health conditions and symptoms, my focus areas include anxiety, relationship issues, grief and loss, stress, and adjustments to college.

I am trained in the MBCT technique.  I work mainly from a CBT approach but also incorporate solution-focused and mindfulness-based modalities to help my clients reach their goals. Despite this, I will always tailor my approach to treatment based on my client’s needs to ensure that an individual’s unique needs are met.

Ultimately, what you can expect from me is authenticity and a comforting space where you can express your innermost thoughts and emotions and be your true self.

In my Free Time

When I’m not providing therapy, I spend my time reading, doing yoga, playing with my pup, exploring new places, bingeing Netflix and Hulu shows, and buying more plants (you can never have enough).

About Pre-Licensed Therapy

If you are seeing a Pre-Licensed Therapist at MFC, know that we are very selective in our hiring process and work extremely closely with the supervising clinician to ensure their development and the quality of the treatment they deliver. Not all insurances will reimburse for Pre-Licensed therapists, so it is essential to talk with our administrative staff to see if a pre-licensed clinician is the best fit for you.

Lower Cost Therapy with Reduced Rates

We set the private pay-per-session rates for a pre-licensed therapist significantly lower than our seasoned and licensed therapists. This can mean significant financial savings when looking at the long-term costs of seeking treatment. We have found that many people will opt to see a pre-licensed clinician not paneled with their insurance company because the per-session rate can be lower than the copay or cost of counseling using their high deductible plans.


Nikole Klatka offers teletherapy to anyone in Pennsylvania and in-person at our Hershey therapy office.
