I work with people who, in spite of great difficulties, have not given up on finding meaning in their lives. I help them as they struggle with isolation, depression, anxiety, grief or early trauma. Some are trying their best to manage difficult relationships. Others are wondering about their orientation or identity--gendered, sexual, ethnic. Others still are planning the next meaningful transition in their lives.

From grief & loss , trauma, relationships, family conflict, life transitions, self discovery, depression, anxiety, & illness.
Hi I'm Nicole, a psychotherapist in Toronto with over 12 years counselling experience. It's an honour to wade with people into the love & fear, pain & beauty, messy & magic complicatedness of life. While healing and self discovery can feel like contending with the vastness of space, we 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 ...

People often come to therapy to experience an inner shift or get “unstuck”. My years of experience providing counselling and conflict mediation keeps this at the front of mind, while offering a caring space to do so. As a therapist, I focus on supporting clients experiencing general or social anxiety, as well as bereavement , grief , and difficult life transitions.

Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, Existential-Humanistic approach, attachment-based and mindfulness-based therapies, as well as psychotraumatology inform my understanding and ability to address experiences of relational wounds, emotional “burnout”, grief and loss , uncertainty, despair, broken heart, loneliness as well as fear and restlessness.
There are moments in our lives when we are looking for a change, figuring out the next step, getting stuck and feeling that we can’t live our life fully. There are, also, moments of deep emotional pain, disappointments, struggles that come from our encounter with isolation, change, meaning, separation/attachment, death . Not always we can see clearly how to tackle life challenges and we want to have someone to check with, be heard, get ideas for the new directions. Learning to face the inevitable problems, difficulties, upsets, and crises of existence with confidence is what therapy is all about.

Whether the issues are end-of-life planning, parenting our parents, chronic illness, dementia/alzheimer's, betrayal, estrangement, job loss , miscarriage, divorce, sudden, complicated or unexpected death , aging and transitions, or empty-nesting, we experience many similar reactions to loss . Fatigue, depression, anxiety, worry, guilt, and anger are just some of the manifestations. Trouble sleeping and self medicating with food, drugs or alcohol, even suicide seems like an alternative to the pain we carry around with us. I provide culturally sensitive counselling to a diverse community.Together we can create a more meaningful life, filled with truth, joy and love.

I am a registered social worker who was brought to therapeutic work through my own process attempting to understand how to authentically connect to ourselves, our bodies and others in the midst of healing from relational trauma. With trauma and loss having been prominent aspects of my life, I am familiar with experiences of isolation, fear and shame that often act as barriers to repair. Using a trauma-informed, educational and collaborative approach, I aim to create a space for my clients to learn about what relational safety means to them.

We enter psychotherapy for a wide variety of reasons: The death or loss of a loved one, illness, job loss , divorce, addiction, etc., but all of us seek help because we are trying to find a better way to deal with the reality we are facing. My job as a psychotherapist is to help you talk about your emotions and reactions in a safe environment, figure out where these emotions and reactions are coming from, observe whether your reactions produce the desired outcomes and, discover new ways to react, if that would produce more desirable outcomes

My expertise includes acute and life-threatening health conditions, death and dying, grief , trauma, postpartum mental health, stress, depression, anxiety, interpersonal relationships, life transitions, sexuality and sexual identity.
I am Shawna - a passionate and innovative therapist who believes strong mental health is rooted in resilience and connection. Having worked exclusively with young cancer patients and their families over the past decade helped me realize that emotional pain and resilience are not mutually exclusive experiences - they live together. Through the process of recognizing and experiencing our deepest pain, fear and longing we can become better versions of ourselves. My style is empathic, intuitive, and interactive, and I uncover and guide my clients to use their untapped strengths, resilience, and potential for connection in their lives.

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 Toronto grief counsellor, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Toronto.
