Nicole McAlary, M.A.

Individual therapist


Practicing with a person-centred foundation, Nicole believes in the power of working collaboratively with clients to explore their individual needs, strengths, and goals to work towards achieving a greater sense of coping through life's challenges.

Nicole's clinical experience has ranged from working in inpatient hospitalization, to crisis work in Employee Assistance, and community mental health care. While she is experienced in working with diverse client populations and a range of presenting problems among children, adolescents, and adults, Nicole focuses on working with individuals experiencing relationship concerns, anxiety, depression, work related stress, grief, life transitions, separation/divorce, personal identity issues, trauma, LGBTQ+ related struggles, and healthy communication goals.

In addition to creating a supportive, accepting, and empowering environment to foster coping and growth for her clients, Nicole integrates evidence-based frameworks such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Narrative Therapy in an individualized, culturally sensitive approach to therapy.
