Nicolas ‘Nikko’ Medina, MA

Day Treatment Psychotherapist
Nikko is a Day Treatment Mental Health Practitioner at our Burnsville location. He attended the University of Saint Thomas to obtain his MA license. Nikko practices a person- centered approach as it is important for the therapist to establish a strong therapeutic relationship with the client in order for the client to feel comfortable enough to share heavy topics without fear of judgement. Nikko believes in a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy so that clients are able to identify and challenge their maladaptive thinking patterns, as well as utilize mindfulness skills in order to cope with various mental health symptoms they may be experiencing. Nikko has experience working with children, adolescents and adults with dual-diagnosis and SPMI in In-Home, Day Treatment, Intensive Outpatient and Residential settings. He enjoys exercising, discovering new music, traveling and learning the history and customs of different cultures. NMedina@OptionsMinnesota.com
