Nic Rivela, M. Ed (UBC), RCC, CCC

Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Nic is a registered BC (BCACC#14613) and Canadian (CCC#7316) Clinical Counsellor delivering services in English and Spanish.

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 well, to live our own version of happiness and to share ourselves with the ones we care about most. Inevitably, we encounter struggle and feel pain... We have our reasons.

At different times, our struggles and pain can overwhelm our ability to cope. We cannot seem to find the balance we strive for and it becomes difficult to make changes and live how we want to.

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.

Counselling:

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

In counselling will identify and define what is happening. We'll discuss it at your pace. We'll explore the root of it. We'll learn to come to come to terms with it. We'll heal and learn from it. We'll create goals, changes, and growth.
