Nicole (Nic) Coppage, MSW, RCSWI (She/They) graduated with her Master’s of Social Work from the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL. She obtained her Bachelor’s in English and Communications with the intention of becoming a teacher, but realized after her own experience with an eating disorder that her passion actually was in mental health and advocacy for those in marginalized identities. Nic’s areas of interest include eating disorders and LGBTQIA+ issues, and she takes a social-justice and trauma-informed perspective when working with clients.
Nic completed her master’s internship at a non-profit for those who are unhoused, performing case management and individual psychotherapy. She also serves as mental health staff for the Florida-based, LGBTQIA+ nonprofit CampOUT Florida which is a week-long youth summer camp for LGBTQIA+ youth and allies. She not only provides mental health support in this role, but also taught workshops to campers on body positivity and provided basic training on eating disorder awareness and non-dieting approaches to staff.
