to heal from trauma with traditional and holistic modalities.
We are currently accepting new clients interested in starting individual or group therapy with Firebird staff.
At this time, we are only able to provide therapy services to residents of California, as this is where we are licensed. For those who are located out of state, we are able to offer coaching or consultation sessions, which differ from psychotherapy. Please message us if you'd like to find out more.
We primarily provide telehealth services, which allows us to work with clients from all over the state of CA.
We do also have a local office in San Francisco, so please let us know if you are interested in attending sessions in-person.
We are not in-network with any insurance companies but we can offer you a monthly receipt (superbill) which you can send in to your insurance for reimbursement if you have out-of-network benefits. We request full payment at the time of service.

I entered her care with no expectations.
I had been seeing another therapist, who had helped me a great deal, so I didn’t think there was much she could add. With no exaggeration, I say that she has improved my life enormously.
After only three sessions
with Adriana, we were able to clear the roots of many issues that had been causing me pain throughout my life. I feel like a whole new person, and can’t even imagine what the old me used to be like a few months ago!
Adriana is amazing!
Her insight helped me realize trends that have caused conflict in my life. The therapy allowed me to move forward and leave behind the things that were not working. In the short time I worked with her, she brought about a new peace and calm in me.

Nicole Collins entered the healing field after receiving her BA from Colorado State University in Human Services, which led her to work in domestic violence. Following her beliefs and passion in the body-mind-spirit connection and the intelligence of self-healing power, she got her MS from Touro University in Vallejo. She believes that addiction, alcoholism, depression, the things that push against your joy, calm, serenity, and sense of security, are powerful and baffling. Still, something unique inside of you is ready to push back against it all. The fear, anxiety, depression, and trauma that press against your head and chest are real, but they should not define you. She feels her role is to help you find the resources within to overcome the challenges and suffering that life may bring. She specializes in trauma, substance abuse, LGBTQIA+ community, matters of belonging, and helping individuals heal in their relationships within themselves. In your work together, she will meet you where you are and support you in reacquainting you, with all parts of yourself, including your inherent wisdom.
