I am a Certified Expressive Arts Therapist, a professional member of the International/ Canadian Expressive Arts Therapy Associations. I facilitate healing by bringing together body-mind sensation, psychological life, imagination, and intuition using integrative, multimodal arts processes for personal and transformation. I believe that when people accept themselves just as they are, they can change; imagination, creativity and intuition will give them the capacity to reach down into the depths of the psyche, the spirit, the soul, and the body, transform and be resilient from his suffering.

For 28 years I have enjoyed working with individuals, couples and families. I believe in using methods that are grounded in theory and research. My goal is to help people help themselves. I view people as resourceful. My role is to facilitate them in accessing and expressing their thoughts and feelings. Self-awareness enables people to access their own resources, allowing them to live the life they want to live. I see myself as a resource for people who want confidential help to deal with personal issues and I strive hard to deliver effective productive service in a timely manner.

If you are suffering from grief, anxiety or are in the midst of marriage/partnership breakup, I can help. If you have suffered abuse of any kind, I can help you make sense of those experiences. Or, if you are simply weary of the world, I can listen to how you are feeling to help you find hope. I offer a comfortable, safe and relaxed atmosphere and maintain the highest standards of confidentiality. I will add that my life's experiences are what make my service to others genuine, integral and fulfilling. I look forward to meeting with you.

Clients come to me when they feel that something in their life needs to change, but can't quite see the path forward. Some clients aren't quite sure where to start, or even exactly where they want to go. Many feel overwhelmed, stuck, frustrated or exhausted by the experiences and cycles in their life that seem to repeat themselves despite desperately wanting them to change! Our work together could help you gain clarity about where you want to go, identify and remove obstacles (internal & external), provide you with practical new tools for navigating a complex world, seeing changes, and moving forward with joy and confidence!

Having an addicted person in your life can feel like a nightmare and tear your family apart. In order for addiction to have a chance of healing, we must first address the dynamics of the addict's relationships with their loved ones. Many loved ones unwittingly enable the addiction to continue, sometimes because they want to avoid confrontation and conflict. As the enabling continues, the addiction continues as well-and becomes progressively worse. It is important to understand that enabling an addict is never a loving act-and only leads to more severe consequences as time goes on.

First of all, I wanted to say thank you. Looking for a therapist, for yourself or for someone close to you, requires energy and courage. Whether you are experiencing a particularly difficult or different situation recently or for a long time, whether you are in a deeper and more latent reflection, therapy is an answer to those aches and thoughts that fill and overwhelm you. Respecting yourself by offering you the possibility to feel better is, to my opinion, the most important step you are going to take for you. I propose therapy in English and French.

Working from a Jungian lens, I strive to help individuals connect more deeply with themselves, others, and something bigger than themselves. Often when a person is disconnected they feel excessive sadness, anxiety, anger, or general malaise. I help individuals reconnect through creative connection, depth work, and building awareness. Every session is tailored to the client. While I specialize in art therapy and dream exploration, I am also well versed in traditional counselling techniques. I strive to be inclusive, compassionate, and committed.

I imagine that you want to bring your full, authentic self to as many corners of your life as possible, yet for you - like many others - sometimes being truly vulnerable might feel risky. You want to be present with the people you treasure, yet your history might make it difficult to untether from the past, and sometimes feel overloaded by the many demands that wrestle for your attention. If you’ve found your way here, you may be in search of a space where you can explore your genuine, creative self.

Do you wonder if you’re the only one around who experiences the world with the intensity you do? Depending on how stressed you are, it may feel like you’re on alert or like you’re living in a soundproof glass box, cut off from others. You may have a hard time focusing on conversations with co-workers and family. You might have been told you’re "oversensitive" or have "no filter.". You may be feeling frustrated with yourself for not being able to get things together and just move forward, but the pandemic has made everything harder, and it feels like there are always too many moving parts. You want for a space to talk this through.

Do negative thoughts, feeling the pain of a lost loved one or beloved pet impact your daily life? I am deeply interested in the wellbeing of you and your pet. I have always had a special connection with animals and focus on pet loss and grief as well as the anxiety and depression that can result from the loss of your loved one. The constant stream of negative thoughts is most damaging and giving us bad energy.

I want to understand who you are and unpack the contents of your mind with you. When traumatic events or negative experiences aren’t processed, they can take shape in behaviour, habits, feelings, thoughts and relationship dynamics. I offer a therapeutic journey to disarm the loops in your mind and work towards loosening their grip in your life. Whether you're feeling anxious, jaded, overwhelmed, empty, frozen, or feel your experiences are embarrassing or shameful, I believe you are worthy and deserving of being met with acceptance, care and connection.

I draw on over 30 years of professional experience in working with adolescents, adults and families. By providing a safe non judgmental environment I can support you to explore the thoughts and belief patterns that create your reactions. When you recognize patterns of interactions and triggers, together we explore and cultivate an understanding of how those patterns started. You determine, if these patterns continue to serve you. I can help bring what is unconscious, conscious so you can choose how you respond in any given situation. You get to create a life that is more in line with your goals, values and ideals.

Hi, I’m Nicole. I live in the beautiful Sea to Sky corridor & accept online clients throughout BC. I believe that through therapy all people have the opportunity to learn and understand themselves on a deeper level. With this inner exploration one can experience more understanding, self compassion, and open space for more joy in life – starting today. Therapy can support clients to explore personal patterns that may no longer be serving them. Together clients and therapists work to safely let go of those patterns while building supportive resources, discovering new skills, and creating a personalized tool kit to move forward with.
