Connecting to your inner wisdom, building new skills, and identifying forgotten strengths and values, can support individuals dealing with anxiety, overwhelm, grief and trauma, as well as those wishing to take the next step towards their goals.
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.

I believe that people deserve a place to feel seen, heard, and supported. In our sessions, I strive to provide a non-judgmental and open space where you can express yourself and explore your inner world so that we can create change together. While it is true that counselling can be challenging, I also believe it can and should include humour, hope, and be a comfortable place for you to learn and grow. If you are in a place where you are ready to make a change, I will support you to address concerns such as anxiety, depression, ADHD/ADD, parenting, interpersonal and relationship challenges, grief and loss , trauma, and careers.

I entered this field as a way to heal my own wounds while trying to work through the sudden and tragic loss of a family member. I am often reminded of the quote by A.E. Housman - 'I, a stranger and afraid, in a world I never made', and know what it's like to lose hope in a rapidly changing world, with many things supposedly outside of our control. My intention is to use my real-life experience as a way to offer hope and possibility to those who’ve had to deal with similar pain, grief , and suffering in their lives.

Loss , injury, abuse, neglect; these are some of the reasons why life hurts.
Something's in the way. Sadness, anxiety, loneliness, stress, worry, depression, substance use, loss . The world is heavy, and that weight can be paralyzing. You know that you have something to offer. You're compassionate, creative, intelligent, sensitive, loving, and yet strong-willed, skeptical, and maybe even a bit rebellious. It seems as though you don't fit the mold, but it's the mold that doesn't fit you. Social isolation, feeling disconnected from others, from the world, adds to the weight, to the pain. If you could only break free from the self-doubt that cultures and institutions feed, the world might just open up for you.

If you're struggling with your sense of self-worth, or going through a tough loss or transition, you may want some support. I'd welcome the chance to work along side you. Finding the right fit with a therapist is really important for counselling to be helpful. It should be with someone who really understands what is happening for you, someone professionally qualified to help, and someone who you feel comfortable talking to. Therapy involves effort. The good news is that you won’t be doing it alone. The alliance between us means that I'll be there to support you, ready to work with you while you create your path forward.

I am an existential therapist which means I am listening in particular for the ways you may be struggling with meaning-making in your life, and with issues related to grief & loss .
My approach is collaborative- meaning sessions will feel conversational in style, will always involve humor and I will ask questions to help you recognize themes in your experience and bodily sense. I work from the stance that therapists are often too quick to consider individuals' concerns solely as matters of personal psychology. My philosophy and commitment is to also weigh the social and political aspects of your experience. Our symptoms (sadness, worry, etc.) must be addressed seriously, but we must also acknowledge the contributions of a persons' entire context (political setting, cultural background, race, gender, sexuality,

I help clients with anxiety, depression, and those experiencing personal and collective grief and loss , including those who experience self-esteem and self-worth doubts, existential concerns and those searching for a purpose in their lives.
You are asking the big existential questions. Why am I here? Perhaps you keep looking to self-help books and always taking the next seminar or online course - always looking for the answers outside yourself. You want to feel connected to yourself, your loved ones, and the world around you, yet you feel like you don't belong. You feel loss and grief and are searching for purpose but are living with depression and anxiety and questioning your self-worth.

Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, grief and loss , or major life transitions, I look forward to supporting you.
I am a Graduate Intern Therapist at Arbutus Counselling where I will continue to develop and expand my knowledge and skills to better serve the needs of counselling clients prior to registration with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors as a Registered Clinical Counsellor in late 2022. We have all had to endure struggles at some point – it’s the cost of admission to this thing called life. At the same time, I believe that we have innate resilience and strength to draw upon and a capacity to change and grow.

I am a certified Life Coach and Registered Professional Counsellor, specializing in loss and grief counselling and I am the founder of Village Grief Counselling here in Vancouver.
It has been for too long that we have not given ourselves permission to fully grieve our losses. Whether it is a fear that allowing the grief to be experienced will be too much to bear, or the belief that we don't have as bad a situation as others, there are many reasons that we don't allow ourselves to grieve fully after our losses. This unprocessed grief will affect us, mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Together, we will explore resources around and within you to honor your grief and move through it. Village Grief Counselling is an oasis for individuals experiencing loss .

At times we can feel distanced from the sense of joy, contentment, peace, and meaning for which we most deeply yearn. The ability to express ourselves and relate to others in wholehearted, self-aligned and authentic ways is complex and interwoven with both conscious and unconscious influences at work in our lives. If you are navigating sadness, grief , issues surrounding high sensitivity, or spiritual/religious trauma, you do not have to hold this alone. It would be my honour to support you in exploring, deepening, and endeavouring to transform these experiences in alignment with your unique sense of purpose and life expression.

Grief Counsellors
Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

If you're looking for a Vancouver grief counsellor, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Vancouver.
