Recovery Support Specialist
Born and raised in Princeton, IL, Nicolas has been aware of and experienced many of the issues plaguing the area. Specifically, he is interested in combating the epidemic of depression and suicide that plagues Princeton, Bureau County, and the surrounding area. Additionally, he is committed to serving the youth and young adult population so that they can effectively live their lives and improve the community in their own way. By working through Arukah, Nicolas hopes to turn Princeton into a model of how to effectively do mental health in a rural community that will be looked to for decades to come. Beyond Arukah, Nicolas hopes to gain more experience and education to become a licensed clinical psychologist so that he can more directly serve the community.
