Meet nick pavlov

Nick Pavlov, Registered Psychotherapist

I am a Registered Psychotherapist, ACBS Peer-reviewed ACT trainer and Certified Trauma Professional with over 10 years of experience working with adults. 

I work with people who struggle with the consequences of traumatic experiences, acute stress and a variety of problems that come with immigration, like loss of status, social support, self and professional identity. I help people learn how to deal with their inner critic and develop compassion for themselves and their struggles. My clients tell me that I am a safe and supportive therapist who helps them feel more secure and find contact with resources to live a full and meaningful life.

I help clients increase psychological flexibility and quality of life with evidence-based treatments like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion-focused therapy (CFT). My background also includes long-term training in Gestalt-therapy and Somatic psychotherapy Hakomi and specific trauma treatment training.

I am a member of the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science, Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy, International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation.
