Nicole Sartini M.Ed., LPCC, NCC, IMHP
Co-Founder, Executive Director and Therapist
Nicole Sartini has been practicing therapy professionally since 2010 and working in the field as a non-professional since 1999. Sartini’s specialty is helping adults on the awakening path manage the waves of unlearning old familial, environmental and societal conditioning and find true self freedom and deep healing through the process of tuning in and connecting with the core of their beingness.
As a Mental Health Counselor and Psychotherapist, Sartini’s counseling practice involves integrating traditional talk therapy with mind-body-soul work through meditation, movement, nutrition and deep inner work. She sees a limited number of individual clients at Bridge Counseling and Wellness, an integrative mental health and wellness center in Louisville, KY, where she’s Co-founder and Executive Director. She is also the Co-founder of The Academy of Integrative Mental Health, the 3-Core Integrative (3CI) certification training for integrative mental health professionals and founder of Edenside Sanctuary.
Sartini believes looking inward and getting to know and understand the layers of “self” is the greatest gift we can give ourselves and the world. Every life obstacle faced is also an opportunity for embodying our growth. “We are still writing our stories. The present and future are ours to co-create. We can make the choice to love and accept ourselves just as we are in this moment, and, at the same time, move tenderly toward our personal and collective evolution,” explains Sartini, who, in addition to private counseling, also offers live training, motivational speaking and hosts retreats.
In 2010, Sartini published a therapeutic children’s book called “A Safe Place for Me.” With a grant from the Kentucky Foundation for Women, she was able to provide copies in bulk to every residential children’s home across the state. She has volunteered for the Prevention, Education and Advocacy on Campus and in the Community Program (PEACC) at the Univ. of Louisville and served as a member of the Children Exposed to Violence Collective Impact Initiative, now known as Children’s Shield. Through Bridge Counseling and Wellness, she has partnered with organizations such as the Kentucky Alliance Against Racism and Political Oppression, Parents for Social Justice, Therapists for Protestor Wellness and many other groups working toward social equity. She currently volunteers for Professional Advocacy and Story’s Lighthouse, a wrap around program for individuals recovering from substance abuse after experiencing houselessness or incaercaration, and serves as a supporting member of the Kentucky Minority Mental Health Coalition.
In addition to her work in the mental-health field, Sartini is also a noted business leader. In 2019, she was named by Louisville Business First to the publication’s first class of Most Admired CEOs. The group of 25 leaders span important industries in Louisville, from health care, to manufacturing, financial and construction. The counseling practice she co-owns has also received awards for its work in the community.
Sartini has a master’s degree in education and counseling psychology / mental health counseling, is professionally licensed, and has experience providing mental health trainings to local, national and international organizations such as Brown Foreman. An avid writer, Sartini is a contributor to GoodTherapy.org and has contributed to many other business and mental health related publications.
Sartini’s interests include dancing, meditation, spending time outdoors, creating art, making deep, meaningful connections, and hosting regular meaningful community events in her one hundred year old home which she lovingly refers to as Edenside Sanctuary.
