From a recent client satisfaction survey:
"I was completely out of this marriage, and only showed up because I wanted a professional to tell us it was over. Now, I couldn't love my wife more, and I couldn't love my life more. I thank Dr. Nick for this."
"No matter how many times he should have, Dr. Wilkens never gave up on me and I can't thank him enough."
"Dr. Wilkens literally saved my life."
"I love him because of his sense of humor, and how it became viral between my husband and I. We left every session laughing, which brought us so much closer together."
"Dr. Nick is clearly highly educated. But I think it doesn't matter how much yours therapist know unless you know how much they care. Dr. Nick met both of these requirements. Big time."
"He is worth every penny and every minute you spend with him."
"We came in for marriage counseling, as a last resort for both of us. Dr. Nick didn't try to talk us into staying together, but helped us clarify how we felt and how we could move forward with our kids as a divorced couple. I will never be able to repay him for that."
"I was initially very turned off by the fact that he didn't take insurance, but I soon learned why. He has helped make me a better person, and I will be eternally grateful."
"I walked in with the worst case of OCD ever. I walked out with no symptoms and no intrusive thoughts, and knowing what I needed to do if they ever came back."
From former graduate students and supervisees/interns of Dr. Wilkens, who are now successful therapists and educators:
"Your experience, knowledge, and passion/compassion for your students and interns will be greatly missed."
"The information you gave us has been some of the most valuable both personally and professionally. I wanted to thank you for your excellence in teaching, your depth of knowledge and insight, and your comfortable teaching style. Yours is a gift."
"I can't really thank you enough for being an incredible mentor in my life."
"Thank you so much for being so dedicated and making learning fun. I will carry your wisdom with me everywhere I go. We all want to change the world and you gave us the foundation to do so."
"It was an honor to be your student and intern and I know learned from the very best. Thank you."
"I have a deep appreciation for all the times that you set the tone of curiosity; therefore, I was never intimidated to ask a question or explore a concept with you. You have a gift of being approachable to your students but also challenging us to learn."
"You are a wonderful influence! I thank you for it all. You are the only professor I can think of who demonstrated that you can be fun and funny and serious when need be. I love that."
"I learned so much from my time as your student and intern. I have the clearest memory of watching a session of yours turn very serious unexpectedly. You were incredibly compassionate, calm, and reassuring under pressure, and I carry that moment with me. Thank you."
