Nikita's headshot.jpeg

Nikita Ariganello

Nikita is available for counselling sessions in-person in Exeter on Wednesdays and in London on Thursdays, and also by v

ideo or phone. 


Nikita provides a safe and judgement-free space where clients are free to explore different themes that may be prevalent in their lives, such as depression, grief, loss, life transitions, stress, anxiety, trauma, relationships, family,  faith. and spirituality.  She

creates a non-biased space where

clients can freely create

meaning, and make sense of

emotions they may be feeling.

Nikita collaborates with clients through Solution-Focused therapy, Narrative therapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Empathy, encouragement and support are important to Nikita in building a therapeutic relationship with clients, and as well, helping clients see different insights and perspectives in their lives.


Nikita was born and raised in a diverse background and believes in welcoming others openly into a space, no matter

the circumstances of one’s background, identity, or social status. Nikita believes

it is important that clients have the opportunity to tell their story and their truth, and to provide an attentive ear

and heart to the vulnerabilities that one may share with her. Nikita is open to exploring and incorporating into therapy a person’s beliefs, dreams, spirituality/faith or what is sacred

to an individual. 

Nikita has previous experience in a forensic mental health care setting,

and believes that self-care and caring

for one’s mental health is an important factor in life. Nikita is completing her Master of Pastoral Studies, working towards a certificate in Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy from Knox College (University of Toronto).

Dana Cressman

Dana is available for counselling

sessions in-person in Exeter

on Thursdays, and  also by

video or phone. 

Dana has worked for over eight years in education with youth and families. Her

work with clients is deeply influenced by

the posture that youth, individuals, and families each possess strengths which contribute to their own healing journeys. Conversations around faith and spirituality are welcome, should they be important aspects of a client’s journey. 

Recognizing the impact of trauma, stress,

and relational conflict on the body and

mind is integral to Dana’s work with

clients. When we learn to pay mindful attention to our body’s response to

difficult events, we begin the process

of finding safety in our bodies. 

She offers a space to explore life

events through personal stories, art,

and creative expression. Through

talk-therapy, body-based therapy,

or artistic expression, Dana will explore

with clients avenues which promote

healing, personal growth,

and wholehearted living. 

Dana is a Masters of Theology in Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy Candidate at

Martin Luther University College,

affiliated with Wilfrid Laurier University. 

Dana loves a good laugh, quiet moments

in nature, reading, and creative activities.
