Nic Rivela, M.Ed, RCC, CCC, bilingual English/Spanish Clinical Counsellor

We live in a complicated and fast paced world. All of us face our own unique challenges as we navigate the best we can through our lives. We yearn to feel good, to seek out our version of happiness and to share ourselves with the ones we care about most.

Inevitably, we will encounter struggles and feel pain. All of us will have our own unique reasons as to why. We give our pain many different names and come to understand it in different ways. Still, regardless of name or perspective, we feel it and it hurts.

At different times in our lives, the pain and struggle we feel and live with can overwhelm our ability to cope with it. We cannot seem to find the balance we strive for and it becomes difficult to make the changes we want amidst our many daily responsibilities.

Change can be intimidating and difficult to navigate.

In counselling, you can expect a genuine non-judgmental environment that is confidential and collaborative. We will define the issues that you want to focus on and develop solutions in line with who you are and the changes you aim to make. I will help you to identify and explore the root of the issue and support you to come to come to terms with it in a manner that is true to you, who you are, and who you want to be.

We are all capable of creating new sustainable patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving.
