Possibility Thinking, Compassion & Inclusivity
Dr. Nicassio delights in challenging outmoded and harmful ways of thinking. She embodies possibility thinking in the truest sense and embraces compassionate, choice-driven, and inclusive living as a central and ethical key for individual and societal transformation and healing. Her sensitivity to the unique and special needs of all who reside on this planet offers a new voice of hope, even (and especially) for those who are often left behind.
