Nikki Featherstone is a registered Art Psychotherapist and Reiki II practitioner who enjoys lifelong passions for art, healing, spirituality, cats, trees, and the sacredness of the everyday. She provides clinical counselling with and without artmaking, holds a designation as a Registered Canadian Art Therapist, and is a member of the Association of Counselling Therapy of Alberta. Her therapeutic approach is Feminist, Anti-Oppressive, Person-Centered, Trauma-Informed, and Spiritually Integrated. Nikki specializes in including the spiritual components of the human experience and welcomes all faiths and/or spiritual traditions. She also offers non-clinical Soul Coaching sessions, which may include ceremony and ritual support, Reiki and drum energetic healing, shadow work, and/or guided spiritual journeys and meditations.
Nikki creates and holds space in a way that allows each person to be exactly who they are, held in non-judgement and acceptance. She openly identifies as a queer woman with many intersecting identities, which deepens her capacity in holding space for populations that face systemic oppression. She works with ages 12 years+ and although she supports a variety of humans in their healing, she has a deep connection to working with adolescent girls, women/femme identified adults, as well as other noted populations: SWs, queer, 2SLGBTQ+, poly/non-monogamous couples and families; minority faith groups (i.e., paganism, eclectic spiritual faith traditions); men/male-identified adults working through cultural programming.
“When I walk with you alongside your healing journey, I will create space that is deeply compassionate, filled with kindness, validation, and radical acceptance, while also modelling healthy boundaries and secure self-attachment. Acting as Guide, I am honoured to be a part of your journey in finding the holistic health that is right for your unique Spirit.”
