Nicole Hopkins, LPC has been a Vive Family Support Program team member for almost three years and recently celebrated her one year anniversary as the Atlanta Regional Director. She has her masters in Professional Family Counseling and brings a diverse skill set to her role. She has worked in various therapeutic settings before coming to Vive, including a therapeutic boarding school, traditional day school, a community agency and private practice.
When asked what she is most proud of in the role she has now, Nicole reflected that during the past year at Vive there has been a lot of evolution on many levels and she was quite proud of how she was able to retain a strong and healthy team in Atlanta who are engaged, excited and delivering the best quality of care for their families. She also remarked that unlike residential settings, Vive serves a large cross section of people and she enjoys the challenges and sometimes out-of-the-box thinking required to make sure our families get consistent quality of service, regardless of age, gender, or issues. This also allows for room to build a diverse team of clinicians to serve these families. She goes on to mention that Vive bases the treatment approach with all of the clients on a family systems model, providing that consistency.
Her favorite part of the work she is doing is the connection with the families. She feels honored to be entrusted to help guide them during a very vulnerable time in their lives. She also feels grateful to be part of collaborative team that works together to choose the best match for the families and also support each other as the team and family progress in the program.
