Nicole is a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor (RTC #2602) with the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists of Canada (ACCT).

I’ve always had a passion for supporting others in their wellness journey, whether it was through personal training, fitness instructing, volunteering with Al-Anon, or putting on wellness retreats. 

Through working with people on their physical selves, I learned of my ability to see, support, and hold loving space for their mind and heart as well.

I’m excited to support you on your journey to falling in love with yourself and your life.

Nicole’s Approach

It is my belief that each of our struggles is here to show us our greatest gifts, sometimes we just need help seeing them.

My path to becoming a counsellor came from managing my way through my own depression, substance abuse trauma, anxiety, perfectionism and all the unruly emotions that came with that. My healing has helped me understand that I have never been alone and that each of these hardships have all been beautiful gifts along my journey… and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.

3 Things About Me

I am convinced the sun, healthy nutrition, movement, laughing, and connection are the building blocks of all mental health care.

I constantly walk around with a wide-open heart.

I am excited to remind you that therapy isn’t just about being calm and centered, it’s about being alive and living life to its fullest potential.

Therapeutic Modalities

My academic training is from a combination of perspectives that include Transpersonal, Family Systems, Person Centered, Gestalt and many other orientations. This means I help you look at the larger picture of your life, where you come from, your relationship to yourself, world, other and spirituality. 

Specialization

Together we will progress from self-awareness, into some deeper, more interactive processes. Eventually, you will stand on the other side of your struggle with a deep understanding of yourself, where you came from, and even start to see your life’s purpose.
