Clinical Social Worker/Therapist
Nicole Mallay received a Bachelor of Arts (BA Honours in Psychology) from Saint Mary’s University and a Master of Social Work (Clinical Specialization) from the University of Calgary.
Nicole has experience supporting youth and adults who are dealing with challenges associated with anxiety, depression, trauma and stressor related disorders, bipolar disorder and addiction. Nicole would love to co-create a space of healing with individuals, families or couples who are dealing with mental health issues, relationship concerns, stress or other life issues that often arise.

Growth and healing is possible no matter where you are in your journey. I am passionate about
creating a genuine therapeutic connection with my clients. Compassion, understanding and trust are important aspects of my practice. Everyone faces a variety of challenges throughout life, I can help you develop new coping strategies, change unhelpful thinking patterns and work through difficult emotions.
I work from a holistic, strengths-based approach. I understand that people are unique and tailor sessions to each individual’s needs. My practice is evidence based and I provide services such as cognitive behavioural therapy, solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy. As a social worker I understand how societal factors can impact our mental well-being and will work with you to address these concerns. I recognize that each client has the power and strength to overcome their challenges. We will work together to build upon these strengths to enact change.
Our appointments together are confidential and collaborative. I hope to work with you on your journey to mental well-being. I am available during days and evenings as I realize life can get busy.

Mental health and physical health are deeply connected. Those living with mental health challenges are at higher risk of experiencing many chronic physical conditions. Conversely, those living with chronic physical health conditions are more likely to experience poor mental health. Taking care of your mental health is a key part of taking care of your overall physical health and wellness. The link between body and mind is powerful.
