Nicolle Bellerive, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, earned her undergraduate degree in elementary education from Montana State University, Bozeman, and completed her Master’s of Social Work at Walla Walla University. Nicolle is passionate about approaching patient care as a partnership. “I want to meet each person where they are, listen to their story, provide support to help patients develop their innate strengths and tools to help them overcome the struggles that are inherent to the human condition. My patients can expect a safe space in which to share their experiences and develop new coping skills.” In her free time, Nicolle enjoys hiking, biking and floating the river with friends and her dog. Her other passions include gardening, painting, sculpting and working with clay.
