Notification to clients regarding Nicole Kraft:
We are sorry to see Nicole leave. She has moved to BC with her husband and children, and is greatly missed around here. Nicole has worked here at Riverbend Counselling for 3.5 years and is endeared to her colleagues and her clients. Nicole has a special vibrancy and professional intuition when working with people that heightens the experience for clients. We can replace a role, but we can’t replace a person. We wished we could clone her or keep her, but even good things must some times be let go. We wish you all the best in your ventures in BC, Nicole.

We are grateful that Nicole is continuing on with us from a distance as her availability allows by providing e-counselling services for the care of her Manitoba clients. Since moving to Abbotsford BC, Nicole is also working at Cares Counselling & Restoration Services.

Nicole has a relaxed and down to earth style. She is approachable, trustworthy and easy to talk to. She enjoys coming alongside people and their needs, collaborating with them to create a vision for growth and healing. Nicole is a natural motivator who empowers people to work towards their goals and realize their unique purpose and capacities. Her ability to offer a fresh perspective with insight and wisdom encourages her clients to come out of places where they may have felt stuck or helpless. Nicole's personal life journey has involved overcoming significant challenges and adjustments. These experiences of healing and wholeness enable Nicole to be a sensitive and understanding companion in the counselling process.
