A little about Nikki…
Nikki is a professionally trained Art Psychotherapist and Reiki II practitioner, and holds the designation of Registered Canadian Art Therapist (RCAT #248-R-19) with the Canadian Art Therapy Association (CATA). She is a Counselling Therapist member with the Association of Counselling Therapy of Alberta (#1375), and has additional training in dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), grief & loss, animist psychology, depth & transpersonal psychology, eco-therapy, narrative therapy, and a lifetime of study in spiritual integrations of Soul Work. Her approach to healing is wholistic, feminist, anti-oppressive, person centered, trauma informed, and spiritually integrated.
Nikki enjoys lifelong passions for art, healing, spirituality, cats, trees, and the sacredness of the everyday. She specializes in including the spiritual components of the human experience and welcomes all faiths and/or spiritual traditions. She also offers non-clinical Soul Coaching sessions, which may include ceremony and ritual support, Reiki and drum energetic healing, shadow work, and/or guided spiritual journeys and meditations.
Nikki creates and holds space in a way that allows each person to be exactly who they are, held in non-judgement and acceptance. She openly identifies as a queer woman with many intersecting identities, which deepens her capacity in holding space for populations that face systemic oppression. She works with ages 12 years+ and although she supports a variety of humans in their healing, she has a deep connection to working with adolescent girls, women/femme identified adults, as well as other noted populations: SWs, queer, 2SLGBTQ+, poly/non-monogamous couples and families; minority faith groups (i.e., paganism, eclectic spiritual faith traditions); men/male-identified adults working through cultural programming.
“When I walk with you alongside your healing journey, I will create space that is deeply compassionate, filled with kindness, validation, and radical acceptance, while also modelling healthy boundaries and secure self-attachment. Acting as Guide, I am honoured to be a part of your journey in finding the holistic health that is right for your unique Spirit.”

~ My work takes me into relationship with communities across multiple Treaty Lands. We must acknowledge what those treaties mean and the responsibility of being Treaty People. I acknowledge that the land on which my studio resides is Treaty 6 territory and a traditional meeting ground and home for many Indigenous Peoples, including Cree, Saulteaux, Niisitapi (Blackfoot), Métis, and Nakota Sioux. My deep gratitude to all Ancestors and Keepers of the land on whose traditional territories I am honoured to live and work. I extend my heartfelt appreciation for all the wisdom and teachings that Indigenous peoples share, teaching the ways of respect and reciprocity for the land and all life.
