Mary Nicholls, LMHCA, MHP
Mental Health Clinician
Adult Community Support
Hello, everyone! I am Mary Nicholls! I’m a mental health clinician on the Adult Community Support Team at Northgate! ❤️
Tell us something about yourself.
I returned to school to obtain a Master’s Degree in counseling, after working in mental health for 15 years!
Do you have a favorite book, tv show or movie? What makes it your favorite?
The best thing about commuting, before the pandemic, was listening to audiobooks from the library. ❤️
Do you have any advice for new team members?
Remember you have a team around you that can support you and help sharpen your skills and you can do the same for them. 🧑🤝🧑
Sound appreciates our rich diversity of team members. Feel free to tell us about your cultural, ethnic, or racial background! What does Sound’s Diversity and Inclusion statement mean to you?
I love Sound’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, and I have seen it at Sound gatherings. I am the granddaughter of immigrants, so I have an appreciation of immigrants and those not of the dominant culture. I am primarily of the dominant culture, growing up in the Seattle area and living in the PNW all my life. I have appreciated how Seattle appears to have become more diverse over the years and I commit to embracing people from all walks of life .
Tell us about someone at Sound who has had a big impact on you!
The agency in which I worked for years, merged with Sound, 14 months ago. I have always appreciated my colleagues and my supervisors, attending to what I can glean from each person, as well as how I can contribute to their growth. I know that almost all of us are good listeners, are open to critique, value other people, and nuance. It is a good field in which to work. 😇
What is your favorite thing about working at Sound?
Sound is a large organization, so whenever it can feel smaller to me, by making connections, or learning that someone I know from the past, also works here, it pleases me. ❤️
Thank you for choosing Sound, Mary! We’re so happy to have you on our team! <3
