Thank you for being here. I'm Nikkol, and before I get to know you let me share a little about me ...

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC), a Mindfulness-Based Trauma Therapist, Qualifying Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, and Certified 400-hr Yoga Instructor who uses the pronouns she/her. Beyond my professional designations, I encompass the role as a mother, loving partner, a friend, daughter, sibling, photographer, yogi, traveler, and, above all, a lifelong seeker of knowledge and wonder.

My deep curiosity fuels my passion for understanding the intricate connection between the mind and body – dedicated to helping individuals understand their emotional and physical experience through meaningful conversation and purposeful movement.

As your counsellor, my primary goal is to create a secure, empathetic, non-judgmental, and confidential space for the healing process. Having benefited from mental health support myself, I understand the importance of feeling comfortable in your environment and with your counsellor. I take the time to fully understand your concerns, modify my approaches to your unique needs, and provide the support necessary for you to uncover your strengths and resources.

The process of healing is a delicate and complex journey, and I firmly believe in a collaborative approach. Together, we will uncover the barriers preventing you from achieving balance and vitality while working on your concerns. The ultimate goal is for you to gain a felt sense of security and mastery in managing your overall well-being.

Each persons path towards healing and wellness is as unique and individual as their thumb print. For this reason, I use an integrative approach to therapy, drawing from several healing modalities to help facilitate personal exploration and growth. In this process you are the expert in knowing what you need and I am a guide to help explore alternative perspectives in order for you to reconnect to your essence that creates your well-being.
