Candice Seligman, MACP, DVATI, CCC
Hi! I’m Candice (she/her). I’m a counsellor, art therapist, and fellow human being.
I offer a compassionate and accepting space where you can be your authentic self and receive the support and guidance you are looking for. I will walk alongside you to offer you support to process your past and present life experiences, gain tools to cope with life's ups and downs, foster resiliency, and work towards achieving positive and long-lasting change.
I am passionate about supporting clients with anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, self-esteem and self-worth, boundaries, perfectionism, personal growth, inner child and inner critic work, and preparation for- and integration of plant medicine experiences. I work with individuals of various ages, cultures, religions, and sexual orientations and I am dedicated to being a safe and supportive space that honours diversity.
I use an integrative and trauma-informed approach drawing from: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Art Therapy, CBT, Emotionally-Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and Somatic/Nervous-System Functioning Informed Therapies. Every person is unique, and I love to tailor my approach to your unique needs and goals for therapy, while always working with compassion, acceptance, empathy, and understanding.
When I'm not in the counsellor’s seat, you can always find me diving deep into a book, riding my bike around the city, cooking, painting, dancing and singing my heart out, and spending time connecting with nature. I identify as queer, polyam, and an intersectional feminist and I am always learning how to be a better human.
You’ve already taken a big step towards your healing by being here - I would love to connect and begin supporting you on your path of healing.
