Nisha Sangwan, Ph.D
Behavioural Programmer & Play Therapist

Languages: English, Hindi and Gujarati

My passion and primary focus lie in the realm of trauma. I believe that every individual is unique, and one approach cannot be ideal. I encourage my clients to consider a curious perspective towards their thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations, and memories. I also incorporate tools to help my clients loosen the grip of unhelpful narratives, thought patterns and self-beliefs.

I am a Registered Clinical Counselor with BCACC. I did my master’s in counseling psychology in school and youth concentration from Adler University, Vancouver.


Mental health issues, especially traumatic experiences and major life stressors can significantly impact our daily lives, and make us feel disconnected from ourselves, our loved ones, and other important aspects of our lives. I believe that building such connections is the key to healing. Hence, my work focuses on helping my clients build healthier perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships.

With this, I attempt to use a holistic approach in counseling, bringing together emotion, thoughts, and the body. I use different modalities with my clients like CBT-Trauma Informed lens, DBT, Emotional Freedom tapping techniques, Brain Spotting, Mindfulness, Play Therapy, and ACT.

I am experienced in working with clients dealing with :






Anger Management



Parent-child relationship 

Grief and loss 

Child and Youth therapy :

Child play therapy

Self-esteem and motivation 

Anxiety and depression

Nadine Viker
Behavioural Programmer & Technician

Languages: English

My personal experience and love for children has helped me realize that many parents need support. I have a passion for helping children and parents navigate challenging times:

  • With school and academics 
  • Socially with friends 
  • In the home
  • Handling emotions and behaviours

I am a mother of two children, and through my travels working with children in the school based system, I came to realize that I had a special gift for helping parents and children find solutions to difficult issues. Having resolved these issues, both parents and children experienced better quality of life.

I have worked with children for the past five years in the school system as an Education Assistant.  This passion for helping children grow and excel propelled my quest for learning.  I began to learn and practice counselling through child play therapy.  I also have experience doing assessments with children to help get parents diagnoses for their child, and then put a plan in place to help parents access resources and funding within the community and the school district.

My hope is to make a difference in the lives of these families and I would very much like to meet with your family and help make a difference in your lives.

Life is challenging and at times can feel overwhelming. Thoughts may be swirling around your head resulting in stress, anxiety, and feelings of hopelessness. Together, we will work on strategies that allow you to address the root causes of your difficulties and build meaningful social connections.  


I find the best outcome to my intervention is to focus on your strengths and use those to help your area of need. I will use an integrated approach to best benefit and service you by teaching you tools and resources to interpret your behaviours, identify themes and analyze problems. The therapeutic process is possible because you have the capacity to change how you act and feel. Together I will support your healing and bring balance to your mind.

I want to help you meet your goals as well as see personal growth by arming you with new skills and strategies. My goal is to help you build a strong foundation for the now and future so you can live a balanced and joyful life.

Aimee Murdoch, BMT, MTA 

Behavioural Programmer & Technician

Languages: English

With my experience of working with children I have grown to realize that more children than not require more guidance in navigating the challenges of childhood. I have a strong passion of assisting children through these milestones and be a strong advocate for the support they need.


For as long as I can remember I have worked with children, whether that be in the school system, out of homes, or through summer camps, I grew to realize that my heart has a large space reserved for these children who need this extra support.

I believe in being an advocate for these children and educating and assisting families on how to pilot through these challenging years.

Through my education of Music Therapy, I have adapted many of my interventions to tailor towards behavioural issues that arise. My goal is always to work through these behavioural attributes and get to the root of the behaviour.

My passion of working with children has inspired me to continue my education and work towards my master’s in counselling psychology, as well as to practice the use of counselling through child play therapy.

My hope is to make a difference for families, and to aid in guiding you through helping your child through any struggles that may arise.

Your story, your pain and your collection of struggles and memories are unique to you. My overall goal in therapy is to build a grounded relationship with my clients and facilitating them to. My approach is interactive, warm, and accepting; helping my client, which includes children, youth, young adult, and families, to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships so they can know themselves as peaceful, complete, whole, and safe. I follow eclectic approach to therapy as I believe there is no one size fits all approach to therapy. We will spend time understanding exactly what you are experiencing and why so that when you start making changes that improve your life, they will stick.


I prefer in utilizing an integrative approach in which they blend different but complimentary theories to work with their client in the most effective way. This flexible approach enables the counselling experience to be tailored to the individual needs and style of each client. I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental environment where relationship can thrive.

I have earned my Bachelor’s in Developmental Counseling and Master’s in Psychology from India. Also have 6+ years of experience of working with children and young youth both in elementary and secondary schools as a counselor and as academia support teacher. I plan to educate myself again in Canada starting May 2022 with master’s in counselling psychology. I have experience working with a broad range of mental health difficulties along with life challenges. I have worked alongside parents and teachers and other professionals. My main areas of focus are those who present with anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation. I also work with those who have experienced grief/loss, life transitions (school, work, moving), anger, bullying/discrimination and conflict resolution.
