anlcc.com/counselors/brad-petersonNicholas received a Bachelor's Degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Warner Pacific College in 2015. After being involved with youth from High School to College, the call from God and the desire to work with people one on one through counseling became a burden on his heart. He is now currently working towards a Master of Arts in Counseling from Multnomah University, and is under the clinical supervision of Brad Peterson, LMHC, LPC.
Nicholas approaches counseling with a focus on existential therapy along with cognitive behavioral therapy in working with clients, including at-risk youth for 2 years at Youth Guidance Association and Parrott Creek Child and Family Services. He has much experience working with young adults from different backgrounds and has a heart to work with youth who have been abused or who have abused, as well as children and couples. Because he grew up in a very diverse family with 3 sisters from India, 2 brothers from Uganda, and 1 biological brother, he also desires to work with individuals from various backgrounds. Nicholas has a heart to help those who have had to deal with tough circumstances in their young lives, and as a result, struggle with hopelessness. He desires to come alongside others as they walk through the issues in their lives, seeking to offer understanding, hope, courage, skills, and the confidence they need to be successful.
Nicholas has been a youth leader in his church for 4 years, working with youth from all over the community. Nicholas has also done ministry work handing out food and necessity items in Downtown Portland, as well as downtown San Francisco to those who are homeless. He has also done short-term international missions work in India on 4 separate occasions over an 8-year span, as well as in Guatemala
