Description

I'm Nikki, the compassionate force behind The Mind People Therapy & Wellness Clinic. As a registered psychotherapist in Ontario and a registered provisional psychologist in Alberta, I specialize in providing comfort and support to individuals aged 16 and older. 

At The Mind People, we understand that these battles extend far beyond surface-level symptoms. Our approach is distinct; we specialize in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, a method that explores the unconscious mind. Here, we unravel the web of your struggles, revealing the hidden roots that conventional treatments might overlook.
