Dr. Elizabeth Nick

Ph.D., Provisionally Licensed Psychologist

Dr. Nick is a Provisionally Licensed Psychologist who received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Vanderbilt University in 2020. She completed her clinical internship at the Virginia Treatment Center for Children and completed postdoctoral training in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill prior to continuing at One80 Counseling. Across her training experiences, Dr. Nick has conducted therapy in a variety of settings (e.g., private practice, community mental health, inpatient psychiatry; individual, group, and family therapy) with a primary focus on working with children, teens, and their parents. She provides individual and family therapy to young people (from age 8 to young adulthood) for the following concerns: depression, anxiety (generalized, social), trauma, obsessive compulsive disorder, social skills deficits, stress management, family strain, and parental management of behavioral problems. Dr. Nick seeks to create a warm, accepting atmosphere in the therapy room using empathy and humor. She believes therapy is collaborative, with therapists bringing expertise on therapeutic techniques and psychological symptoms and clients bringing expertise about themselves or their children, their lives, their environment, and their circumstances. She is strongly motivated to use evidence-based techniques to alleviate symptoms and solve problems, and also encourages clients to use therapy for reflection, goal-setting, and identity exploration if they wish to. She has a special interest in working with teens and provides affirming care for LGBTQIA+ individuals and parents.

Dr. Nick uses research-supported practices to conceptualize cases and plan treatment for her clients, and she is trained in evidence-based treatments including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT); Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills (DBT); Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP); Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT); the Attachment, Regulation, and Competency (ARC) framework for family therapy; the Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS); Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT); and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
