Nicole’s message: With affirming care, I borrow from Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, CBT, Art Therapy, Religion, and Queer Theory to find the best fit for each client. Based on a transformative justice lens, I believe in critiquing individualism and exploring the harmful impact of dominant societal norms.
Certified Rehabilitation Counsellor (CRC #553957) Registered Counselling Therapist (ACTA #2494), and Registered Therapeutic Counsellor (ACCT #3058) practicing in the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba in Canada.
My practice serves clients who identify as disabled, chronically ill and/or neurodivergent. I am LGBTQ2SIA+ affirming, fat liberation aligned and trauma-informed. My approach is rooted in feminist theory and I strongly believe in social justice, advocacy, and reducing power imbalances.
My goal in therapy is to provide a safe place for you to externally process your feelings, help you “connect the dots” on patterns you fall into, and guide you in making beneficial changes in your life. My favourite type of work is helping clients discover themselves and feel more comfortable in their non-normative identities.
I see clients in-person in my Moose Jaw, SK office and online. I work with adults, teens, and couples.

We are primarily relational in our approaches but rely on a diversity of experiences and theoretical orientations in our practices.

Megan Sutherland, RCSW, RSW (she/her)
Licensure: Canada, Registered Clinical Social Worker (RCSW 04462) – British Columbia and Registered Social Worker, electronic practice (RSW 836337) – Ontario
Services: Professional counselling and psychotherapy for individuals and couples in my downtown Vancouver office, or by phone or secure video. Clinical supervision for master’s level mental health professionals.
Megan’s message: I have always worked with folks whose brains are wired differently. To me, the essence of neurodiversity-affirming counselling is rolling out the red carpet for people to come as they are, not how they are “supposed” to be. Some out-of-the-box thinking and creative therapeutic strategies don’t hurt either.
I am a neurodivergent counsellor who endeavours to provide a neurodiversity-affirming, inclusive counselling practice which welcomes autistic people, ADHDers, folks with OCD, people with sensory processing issues, high sensitivity, trauma, mental health conditions, learning disabilities and other neurodivergences. If you don’t relate to any of the above, I welcome you too!
I acknowledge people who are self-diagnosed, professionally-diagnosed, late-diagnosed, suspect that they are neurodivergent, and those who also come from marginalized populations (neurominorities) whose neurodivergence has traditionally been ignored by the neurnormative world: women, older adults, AFAB/trans/queer folks and racialized people.
My therapy approach is unique to you and is collaborative: we start with an assessment of your concerns and work together on a plan to help make things better, using strategies that make sense to you. I look forward to hearing from you!

We can also explore the connection between your feelings, thoughts and behaviours.

Robert’s message: I specialize in working with individuals who were diagnosed with ADHD later in life to integrate their pre and post diagnosis sense of self and help them to learn how to manage the impact of their ADHD symptoms on their life. My mission is to help people better understand ADHD, how it has and continues to impact their life and how they can manage the impacts of ADHD on their lives. Each person with ADHD will experience it differently, so I work with the individual to find ways to make their life ADHD friendly, instead of them continuing to try and force themselves to act/behave in a neurotypical way.
