My 1st professional headshot. Ever. #purplelove
Now I never wear that purple jacket anymore so people don't wonder if I shower or not. I was also having a good hair day...can't make any promises.
Here, it was around 5pm and it was 106' and I am in front of the courthouse, sweating. Literally. #learningmoment #checktheweather #alottobesaidforphotostudios
Nicol Stolar-Peterson, LCSW, BCD
When I got married I couldn't imagine giving up my last name, it has so much cool lineage. Had I practiced writing it out over 1,000 times I may have changed my mind...... but let's move on.
All those letters behind my name refer to my status as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Board Certified Diplomate of Clinical Social Work. Say that 10x.
I have a Masters in Social Work.
EXPERIENCE / SKILLS
I worked for Child Protective Services for almost 12 years. Almost. I learned more there than I could ever verbalize and I will always be grateful for the opportunity to do that work. I feel good about my time there.
I currently work as a child custody evaluator for family law court, an expert witness, a court performance coach, a therapists coach and a life coach.
I also run a non-profit that helps children prepare for testimony if they are a victim or a witness to a crime. Through our trauma reduction program, we help kids stand taller when they leave court. I am grateful I get to do this work.
I have a "Side biz"as a skincare consultant. I love it. No death threats. Just happy skin and consultants who enjoy building a company of their own.
I started giving training's many years ago. I still do them now. I also started giving motivational talks, small and big. I love it. I have seen the darkness of humanity and I have seen the light. Literally. The light shows up more than people would think. And each time I witness someone who decides to reboot their life, there it is shining bright!!!
