Psychotherapy and mental health education for adult ADHD, maternal mental health, and parenting-related
concerns for Ontario residents

About Me and My Approach

Nicole Armstrong
MA, BEd, Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

Before becoming a therapist, I was a public school teacher for over a decade, focused on supporting students with diverse learning needs. I noticed repeatedly that parents, caregivers, and educators often put their own mental health and well-being on the back burner when supporting children. I completed my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology to help bridge this gap and better support parents looking to strengthen their own mental health. I truly believe that healthy children start with healthy adults! In addition to parents of school-aged children, I work with clients facing maternal mental health challenges, offering mothers and their partners support through fertility issues, pregnancy, and postpartum anxiety and depression. As a mother and stepmother, I am deeply connected to this work and appreciate the value of having a strong support system! Along the way, I have also become passionate about working with teens and adults navigating life with ADHD, helping to identify and alleviate some of the anxiety and day-to-day challenges that are so common.

I take a holistic and integrated approach to counselling, focused primarily on the relationship that I develop with clients. I strive to create a collaborative, inclusive, and judgment-free space where clients can speak openly. I integrate acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy, solution-focused therapy, self-compassion, mindfulness, and family systems therapy, based on specific needs and goals. I work with clients to identify their strengths and develop coping strategies to help tackle current and future challenges.

Individual Therapy &
ADHD Counselling

I use an integrated approach to counselling to set realistic and manageable goals to meet your unique treatment needs. For teens and adults navigating ADHD, together, we can identify your strengths and implement valuable strategies to address focus, self-regulation, and impulsivity.

I have training and experience working with teens and adults with a range of personal concerns, including:

  • ADHD and symptom management

  • Mood and anxiety disorders

  • Challenging family dynamics and interpersonal relationships

Ready for School

Parenting and    Educational Support

We often have expectations for our children that do not always align with reality. This affects not only our relationships with our kids but our own wellbeing! I can work alongside you to identify your child's needs at home and school and how you can best support them, yourself, and your family.


Having taught for over ten years, I have experience working with parents and families addressing concerns, including:


  • Diverse and neurodivergent learning needs (IEP support)

  • School-related concerns

  • Behavioural concerns

  • Blended families

            Maternal              Counselling

Becoming a mother has many ups, downs, and unknowns. I believe it's important to normalize these experiences and break the stigma around maternal mental health. I offer a judgment-free space for you to speak openly about your experience as a new or expectant parent.

I have perinatal training and work with mothers and their partners who are navigating various stages of their journey, including:

  • Fertility

  • Pregnancy/preparing for baby

  • Postpartum anxiety and depression

  • Partner support



I am currently accepting new clients. Please get in touch with me to book a free 15-minute consultation.
