Nicole completed her Masters in Clinical Psychology at the University of Victoria (UVic) and is currently in the third year of her PhD in the UVic Clinical Psychology program.

Nicole has supported adults struggling with various anxiety disorders, depression, disordered eating and body image concerns, trauma, grief, and cultural concerns. Nicole has training in harm reduction and the management of high risk behaviours, and her area of research focuses on identifying predictors of engagement in disordered eating, non suicidal self- injury, and suicidal ideation.

Within therapy, Nicole primarily draws from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy approaches, but provides a flexible and adaptable therapy experience that is tailored to the client’s needs, circumstances, beliefs, and identity. Nicole provides a safe, non-judgemental, and accepting space to discuss the difficult aspects of life and works in collaboration with her clients to support them in achieving their therapy goals. Nicole focuses on ensuring that you feel understood and are equipped with the tools you need so that life and challenges feel manageable.

Nicole is a practicum trainee working under the supervision of Dr. Debbie Leung at the Wise Mind Centre.

 

You are in good hands…

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change

Carl Rogers

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself

Thigh Nhat Hanh

Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward
