I believe that creating a safe, appreciative, and collaborative atmosphere is paramount in therapy. I am passionate about helping people explore their authentic selves, connect with their inner strengths, and use these strengths to create the changes that they desire. I believe people can use strengths and resources to not only overcome obstacles, but also to continually push themselves to achieve their ambitions. I love helping people embrace a growth mindset, view setbacks as opportunities for growth, and continuously strive towards being their best selves.

As a movement and somatic informed counselor, I help clients tap into the wisdom of their bodies through self-expression.
Hello! I am Nogol, a recent immigrant to Canada from Iran. I offer a unique, multicultural perspective in my work. I immigrated to Canada in search of a better life and greater freedom. My personal experience of living in two countries and adapting to a new culture has given me a deep understanding of change, healing, and emotions. I am fluent in both English and Farsi and offer sessions in both languages.

Together, gently, we can find your flow, your voice, your movement once again. I specialize in working with self-identifying women who want to ground, connect to their sense of self, build their self confidence and find their own voice and self agency. I want you to be heard and for you to have the opportunities in your life that you deserve. Whether that means getting out of bed, experiencing joy and curiosity again or discovering what is holding you back and what aspects of yourself need attention and healing.

I am trained in Synergetic Play Therapy and use Dance / Movement Therapy skills in my practice.
Through a compassionate and authentic approach, I support folks with discovering their own brilliant wisdom on their healing journey. I love working with kids (3+), youth, and adults to support their goals through movement and play. Many children who come into the playroom are seeking support with emotional regulation and resilience building. Through parent consultations I will support your learning and understanding of the nervous system to foster depth in your relationship with your child. I provide counselling from a collaborative, trauma informed, and anti-oppressive lens.

As an Expressive Arts Therapist I work alongside individuals and families looking for support and non-judgmental care. Expressive Arts Therapy is a resource oriented method and utilizes the arts in simple ways to gain perspective on the strengths already within us. All sessions are unique to the needs and desires of the client and do not require any previous arts experience. I am incredibly passionate about working with and supporting children, birthing/postpartum people and those who have experienced pregnancy loss.

Experiences such as divorce, a layoff, the death of a loved one, emigration or the children moving house, bring with them changes that are difficult to assimilate and face. These situations mark people's lives, making them feel misunderstood, frustrated, sad or depressed, even making them question the meaning of life. But despite this, they want to find answers to accept reality and move on. I have had some of these experiences and now I am dedicated to supporting people to overcome them. I offer you to schedule your first appointment only for 90$ only in Spanish. Send me an email or send me a text.

I believe we come into the world with a unique gift. My job is to help you discover and utilize the treasures within you. Our values, beliefs, and definitions of success are informed by our families of origin and sociocultural expectations—but by building awareness of the stories we unconsciously carry, we can clear the mist to reveal our personal path to happiness. My humanistic approach to counseling involves creating a strong therapeutic alliance with you to help you gain insight, freedom, and autonomy. Every time a client sees me, I want them to leave our sessions with new understandings of themselves, and to have renewed hope.

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.
