When life begins to feel challenging and overwhelming, it can be difficult to create space for calm and stillness. We may even seek to avoid the quiet altogether, fearing the thoughts that arise or the emotions we keep buried beneath the surface. It often feels easier to distract ourselves from our thoughts or to numb and detach from the challenging emotions that inevitably emerge. Therapy can provide us with a space to turn inward and deeply connect with ourselves, allowing us to bring awareness to our patterns, better understand our needs, move towards acceptance, or even work towards change.

Are you feeling paralyzed by unpredictability, indecision, loneliness, anxiety, rejection, grief, fear, anger, or sadness? Therapy is a powerful way to face the difficulties inherent in being human. Although many of us learn to avoid pain, few of us learn the road to more lasting relief.

Drawing from my training and experience, we'll devise a unique plan to develop strategies toward achieving your goals.

As a husband and father, I understand the challenges we can encounter in our most intimate circle. I am wholly invested in couple and relationship-centred therapy. The pandemic taught me there is no reason to restrict my specialized couples and relationship focused practice to my postal code. Presenting issues impacting the couples relationship include: past trauma; infidelity; communication; addiction; parenting; life stressors; sex and intimacy; ADHD; anxiety and depression. I offer limited slots for individuals wanting an emotionally-focused approach, or wanting to do their own work before engaging in couples therapy.

I make time and space for you to feel comfortable to start dealing with your concerns, explore solutions, or simply vent. The goal of my counseling is that you are more able to identify patterns that can lead to psychological distress, more able to challenge your inner critic or be comfortable verbalizing your experiences to those close to you. I encourage you to try healthy habits, new routines, and grounding techniques. I share the passion for promoting equity and diversity in my mental health work and personal life. My goal in my work is to support you and have you walk out feeling in a better place than when you walked!

To help you, I use Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, as well as providin a space to guide self discovery, self expression, and self compassion. Mindfulness helps us to not get overwhelmed by our distressing thoughts and physical sensations and CBT provides techniques that help changing of thoughts, reactions, and habits. It is my belief that therapy helps heal, strengthen, and or change a person’s relationship with their self, history, and environment. This change can entail adopting coping skills, increasing awareness of how we treat our selves, and management of our environment.

Hi I'm Nicole, a psychotherapist with over 12 years counselling experience. It's an honour to wade with people into the love & fear, pain & beauty, messy & magic of life. Healing & self discovery can feel like contending with the vastness of space, so we will work together to move through the stars and build constellations of relations that sustain life and meaning. My approach is deeply relational, compassionate, creative, trauma & structurally informed. Where individual experiences aren't disconnect from movements in community, or struggles through colonialism, capitalism, or cis-heteropatriarchy - or the depth of our humanity.

Sessions are offered virtually or by phone at this time.

When difficult times come, people are drawn to look at themselves. The habitual patterns of personality and relationships may no longer work or may be unsuited to who you are now. Feelings like shame, guilt and loneliness are painful. Unconscious defenses that protected you in the past can create problems rather than solve them and can actually inhibit your growth and freedom in the present. Therapy can increase self awareness, improve relationships, vitalize your sense of self, help you to discovery meaning and purpose, provide solutions to problems and reduce feelings of distress. Therapy is like a renovation. 30 years experience.
