Nicole Shigeoka

Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology
Associate Counsellor
Warm. Friendly. Thoughtful.
Nicole believes that one of the most important parts of the counselling process is building a strong relationship with you. She prioritizes helping you feel safe and comfortable, knowing that true change can only happen when there's safety.
When you’re working with Nicole, you’ll always be able to feel how present and engaged she is. Nicole always shows up fully, making sure that you are never alone in the hard moments that counselling can bring. Nicole takes a gentle approach to her work, while also giving you the courage to challenge and overcome the obstacles you are facing. If you’re afraid but also ready to dig deeper into your life and experiences, Nicole will guide you through the process. She’ll facilitate your healing process while making sure you feel safe the whole time. 
Nicole comes into the counselling room with the knowledge that many of the issues we face in life connect to something much deeper; by gently exploring with you, Nicole will help you heal the core of your struggles. Not only will this help with your immediate struggles, it will also help heal the deeper stuff so that you can move forward more freely. 
Having a culturally diverse background, Nicole understands the challenges of growing up a part of a minoritized group. She knows what it’s like to not always fit in and have to adapt to mainstream cultural and social expectations. As such, Nicole has a special talent for helping folks who have been minoritized explore their lived experiences and move towards a place of wellness.
