Nadine Viker
Associate Counsellor, Certified Play Specialist & Behavioural Technician

Languages: English

As parents we sometimes feel at a loss as to how to help our child, particularly when they are experiencing difficulties in more than one area of their lives: at school, with friends, regulating emotions, academically, socially or behaviourally.  My personal experience and my love for children has helped me to realize that many parents need support and I have a passion for helping children and parents navigate these challenges. 


My drive and my passion for helping children took me to Stenberg College where I worked on and completed my certification as an Education Assistant. I took my passion for working with children and started working in the school-based system where I enjoyed 5 plus years.

My time in the school-based system opened my eyes to the increasing behaviors in the classroom, but most of these children had no support as they were diagnosed with ADHD or other behavioural issues. I felt there was a need to understand and help these kids to understand themselves and to navigate the school setting that was so turbulent for them, so I designed a program based on accountability and awareness that has been extremely successful. I felt there was so much more to learn so I broadened my scope and took Expressive Play Therapy and Play Therapies at the Justice Institute Of BC.

I have also attended Sand Play Therapy at Trinity Western University. I have been working as a Behavioral Technician at Crossroads Collective and with my added training can also offer Play Therapy Counselling in addition to my skills as a behavioural specialist.

I am excited to share my training, education and passion for helping children. It is a pleasure for me to work with a child, inclusive and alongside the families, to give a comprehensive and overall panoptic treatment plan

Amber Vandermeer
Associate Counsellor & Certified Life Coach 

Languages:  English

My mission is to help you to heal from the root of your anxiety. Everyone experiences different levels of anxiety in their life, and for some, it is constant. 

My method involves healing from a whole human perspective, body, mind, and spirit. Using body based therapies such as Somatic Therapy, I am passionate about discovering the root cause of anxiety so that you can heal, instead of just coping with the symptoms of anxiety. 


I am deeply passionate and honoured to help you through:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Inner-child healing
  • Life transitions & Big changes

I am a mindfulness-based Somatic Therapy practitioner, an Anxiety Coach, a Forest Therapy Guide, and a Life Coach. Using my Body – Mind – Spirit method, I help people to heal from a whole self perspective. I also use the bottom-up method, which addresses the body first. My belief is that our bodies hold the wisdom to our healing, and when we use body-based methods, we are able to heal from our traumas and create more freedom in our lives. When we have anxiety, there is something out of alignment in our lives, my method helps you to come back into alignment with your true self. 

When I was 22, I was diagnosed with cancer. I had severe anxiety, and the cancer gave me the realization that I needed to make a change. From this experience, I became passionate about healing my own anxiety, and learning where anxiety comes from, and how I can help others heal, too. Which has led me to where I am today, using trauma-informed body-based methods, along with mindset coaching, and spiritual healing. Using what I learned works best for healing anxiety, now helps my clients heal as well, helping them to finally free free, calm, and deeply joyful in their lives again.

Loretta Thorgeirson
Associate Counsellor

I believe we all go through struggles and experiences in life where we may need extra support to rise above. If you feel overwhelmed, perhaps I could be of help or a resource for you to find the steps, opportunities or solutions to overcome the obstacles you face.

I would be deeply honoured to work alongside you to help you find your road to healing and recovery. I provide an empathetic and holistic approach to building trust and open communication within our counselling relationship.


My purpose in life has always been to help others. As I pursue my career as a therapist I am currently working as an associate counsellor and have nearly completed my MED in Counselling to become a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) through BCACC.

In addition, I have completed my Bachelor of Education and Post Graduate Certificate in Special Education. My other credentials include my BA in Child and Youth Care.

Working with children, youth and families have granted me the opportunity to build positive connections using a strength-based approach and mindful thinking to help individuals regulate their emotions, problem-solve, and increase self-confidence and self-esteem.

I have supported students in the school system in my current and past career from elementary to high school. As an Integration Support Teacher, my current role allows me to support neurodiverse individuals to ensure they have a valuable, inclusive, educational experience.

Some tasks include preparing and writing Individual Educational Plans (IEPs), helping students transition to kindergarten and high school, and supporting students in their academic or life skills. I also work closely and collaboratively with the family, the school staff, and community partners like OT/PT/ SLP specialists to help with any physical, personal, or communication needs. In my previous career as a Child and Youth Care Worker I worked in the school system and community to help students regarding their social-emotional, or behavioural needs in a supportive approach including one-to-one or small group sessions. I continue developing my skills and therapeutic approach using sand tray therapy, solution-focused therapy, strength-based and person-centred methods, and Mindfulness.

Mansheel Sawhney
Associate Counsellor 

Languages: English, Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu

Our life’s journey is comparable to the thrill of a mystical, magical rollercoaster ride. It has elements of both, surprise, and wonder. The highs, lows, twists, and turns encapsulate and capture our entire human existence in the vessels of our souls.

The amalgamation of these human experiences and emotions are as unique and intricate as our personal thumbprints. It is only natural to feel puzzled by our complexity, distinct patterning, and hidden psyche.

I strongly believe that storytelling is a potent tool to dive into our deepest, most eclipsed side of ourselves and discover the answers we otherwise seek on the surface of our day-to-day lives. I welcome you to my sessions, where we honour your stories and your truth. This therapeutic exchange is an opportunity for us to find a peaceful moment to pause, reflect, accept personal narratives. Let’s (re)create new stories where we celebrate your remarkable identity and meaningful journey. Life is dichotomous in nature, showering equal parts beauty and suffering upon all its mortals. Let’s find the resilience to grow regardless, with your infinite inner strength and my support, together.


I operate from strong personal intuition, empathy, friendship, and a sincere place in my heart. I use holistic lens and rely heavily on Rogerian Person-Centered philosophy and Solution Focused Therapy to establish good communication and working relationship with my clients.

I am a Learner Support Team Teacher from past 6 years and completing my M.Ed in Counselling in March 2023. I have a B.A in Psychology and B.Ed with a minor in Human Development and Counselling. My role as a LST Teacher allows me to work specifically with students who have exceptionalities and vulnerabilities. I am both, experienced and trained, to support neurotypical, neurodiverse children (and their families) who may have behavior or academic challenges.

I decided to pursue a career in counselling when I was standing with a sales client trying to navigate his recent separation from his spouse. I remember standing there desperate to help and feeling completely helpless. That was the day I discovered my passion for people and helping them realise their absolute potential in mitigating difficult situations.

As an Immigrant to Canada, I believe I bring a unique perspective to the therapy room and understand the importance of being able navigate life’s uncertainties and changes. Immigration has also taught me the importance of relationships and community and how difficult it can be to adapt to a new culture or surroundings.

Do you experience ongoing conflicts in your most intimate relationships? Are you a new parent struggling with the loss of desire or intimacy with your partner? Are you overwhelmed by chronic pain, anxiety, or depression? Do you have sleep challenges that impact you deeply on a daily basis? Or are you looking for new meaning in life following an abrupt life transition? These uphill battles do not need to be faced alone. Join me in therapy as we explore facing these challenges together and finding solutions to meet your unique needs.


My style as a therapist is warm, empathic, creative, and encouraging. I offer thoughtful questions to inspire shifts in perspective and enhanced self-awareness. I am likely to gently challenge you to think, feel, and act in different ways to promote healthy relationships with others and with yourself. I aim to help you feel deeply seen, heard, and understood in each of our sessions together.

It would be my privilege to help you navigate difficult life experiences including:

  • The loss of intimacy and desire with your partner
  • Communication breakdowns with your partner or children
  • Chronic pain, anxiety, or depression from a motor vehicle accident
  • Getting passed over repeatedly for that big promotion at work
  • Being “on edge” and constantly feeling the need to keep busy or be perfect

I am completing my Master of Counselling Psychology (MCP) degree at Adler University and am a student member of the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC) and the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). Prior to graduate school I attained a bachelor’s degree from Simon Fraser University and founded three small businesses. I have also provided play-based behaviour intervention for autistic children, authored and published a best-selling parenting book, and worked for a decade in the construction industry.

Although I can always remember having an interest in understanding how others think and what might motivate them to act in certain ways, the greatest catalyst toward eventually becoming a therapist was being in a motor vehicle accident back in 2011. Along the road to physical recovery, I embarked upon an incredibly rewarding and profound path to emotional recovery as well. To my surprise, therapy provided me the precise tools I needed to self-regulate, understand my life patterns, and drastically improve relationships. Through therapy I had experienced genuine validation and undivided attention unlike I had ever encountered before. I have since been a strong advocate for counselling and am grateful to now be able to help others in this highly meaningful work.

My areas of specialization include:

  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Obsessions and compulsions
  • Insomnia and sleep difficulties
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Dissociation
  • Trauma processing
  • Self-compassion
  • Forgiveness
  • Desire and intimacy in couples/partners
  • Consensual non-monogamy
  • Boundaries and assertiveness training
  • Workplace conflict
  • Career advancement

The forms of therapy that most shape my practice include:

  • Schema Therapy
  • Jungian Depth Psychology
  • Sand Tray Therapy

I commend you on taking this courageous leap toward resolving areas of distress in your life and choosing to cultivate joy. As counselling is not a one-size-fits-all approach, I look forward to developing an individual therapy that meets your specific needs.

I found my passion helping people through turmoil and hardship early in my career. I worked in crisis response and coaching for young adults and their families for a decade, supporting people through some of the worst moments of their lives. I’ve worked with individuals with diverse needs, many experiencing mental health crises. I moved into supporting children and youth, exploring how someone’s behaviour and routine can be a tool to supporting their wellness.

I’m currently completing a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology through Yorkville University. I also have been fortunate to have taken a plethora of training and certification opportunities about crisis response, paramedicine, and leadership.

Some of my focus areas for counselling include: crisis counselling, trauma counselling (acute or historic), grief and loss counseling, LGBTQ2S+ support, anxiety, depression, youth & adolescence counselling, and addictions counselling. I work with individuals of all age groups, despite my experiences lending to younger populations.

Through my professional, personal, and educational experience, I have developed a passion for supporting others through hardships and celebrating their path to wellness. I understand that journey is seldom easy, and requires a lot of effort, dedication, and care to reach what can feel like an ever-changing horizon. I hope to join you on that journey together.
