Nicole Caines

Registered Psychologist

People pursue counselling to address a wide range of concerns: anxiety, depression, the death of a loved one, the loss of a relationship, the impact of abuse, illness, or injury, the social- emotional impacts of learning disabilities and ADHD, the challenges of parenting, navigating a challenging life transition, or simply a desire for personal development. Nicole inspires her clients to approach challenges and problems in new ways that help support a more satisfying and fulfilling life. She believes that the challenging experiences we face as human beings often contain hidden opportunities for growth and meaning. The challenges we face in life impact us, but we get to decide how they define us! Nicole has a deep respect for those who are willing to pursue counselling and take an active role in overcoming adversity and creating the life they desire.

Nicole has provided individual and group counselling services in private, school, and community settings. She also regularly facilitates workshops focused on mental health and wellness and is an author and post-secondary instructor in the area of psychology. Her areas of specialization include anxiety, depression, ADHD, learning disabilities, grief, trauma, parenting, separation and divorce, and behavioural challenges. She recognizes that no single approach is the right one for everyone, and has been trained in a range of modalities, including Narrative, Constructivist, Cognitive Behavioural, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapies. She also has a background in biological sciences, which helps her to integrate an understanding of the biological and neurological basis of mental health.

What you can expect:

  • A safe and supportive space. At the core of effective therapy is a genuine bond with the therapist. This means having someone to stand alongside you as you explore the darkest pieces of your experiences as well as to laugh with you and enjoy the lighter side of life.

  • Empowerment. We all have the ingredients to overcome obstacles and create meaningful lives. It is Nicole’s job to help you find and build the perspectives and skills that will support you to take an active role in creating the change that will help you to build your best life. Everyone deserves this opportunity.
