Nicola Haddak

Nicola Haddak is a licensed mental health counselor and certified marriage and family therapist currently in private practice in Clearwater.  Her background in Adlerian theory dates back to when she designed and implemented a residential treatment facility for delinquent youth in Bowling Green, Florida based on the principles inherent in Adler’s work.  Despite the challenges of implementing Adlerian theory in a juvenile justice commitment program, this work laid the foundation for the contribution she makes as a Board member of the Florida Adlerian Society, her work with the Alfred Adler Elementary Charter School in St. Petersburg, and as an individual and family therapist in the community.
