At Sheldon Psychology Group we work as a team as we believe the collaboration of many minds supports the individual goals of the clients we serve.
Nicole has a long history of working with children and families to support them in achieving the kinds of success they deserve in their lives. Before becoming a psychologist, Nicole worked as a teacher, and before that, she worked with youth who were disconnected and off track in their lives. Nicole is passionate about supporting children find success in their lives, and for families to find more peace and calm.
Developmental Therapist and Counsellor
Over the past two decades of working with individuals and families, I have learned the importance of matching services to the unique context of each individual and family. I strongly believe that each family unit is unique and therapeutic goals need to consider the impact on the whole family. It has become my mission to get to know each of you in a way that will allow me to honour your unique context and build upon your existing strengths and abilities.
During my work with you at Sheldon Psychology Group I hope to discover root causes for your current struggles, identify new skills and/or strategies that will be helpful, and to work with you to implement these into your daily life in meaningful and achievable ways. In many cases I will work in combination with you as an individual and, at times, with the family unit as a whole. My hope is that an increased sense of confidence and ease in your overall daily life is gained. I feel incredibly privileged to walk alongside you in this journey.
I bring to the team many years of experience working to support people in making change in their lives through counselling and career exploration. The focus of my work through the years has been on supporting change through life's transitions. I am intensely interested in children's healthy development and supporting strong families.
At Sheldon Psychology Group, I am excited to be completing psychoeducational and career assessments. An understanding of learning profiles promotes increased school success and confidence. Helping reduce some of the uncertainty adolescents experience as they consider their post high school next steps, supports continued momentum on their life journey, while promoting a feeling of ability. I believe this work provides an amazing opportunity to change children's lives for the better, support strong families, and help young people build confidence in their abilities.
I have had the pleasure of working with children with varying challenges for the better part of 14 years. Over the course of my work with children, families, and schools I've come to believe that every child and their family can be successful when meaningful support is provided. Significant growth and change can be made when challenging circumstances and behaviour are met with actionable strategies. My goal is to create a support system emphasizing collaboration across environments by taking the lead from parents as the experts on their children.
My work with the Sheldon Psychology Group team takes me into the community to meet with children and families in the context of their daily lives. I am passionate about consolidating strategies amongst team members in order to provide the best holistic support for the child and family to reach their potential.
Working in the area of gifted education for the last 20 years has taught me there is no greater way to facilitate change and growth than through building relationships. Empowering students to be their best is what drives me in my work. I believe relationships are crucial to every child's success.
As part of the Sheldon Psychology Group team, I bring my experience in education to support children to flourish in the classroom setting. I believe in a collaborative approach. My hope is to support parents and teachers in finding ways to encourage a child's excitement and engagement in learning, through the generation of ideas and goals to support academic success.
