Esther Nowelle / BA (Psych), CCAC
Counsellor & Program Facilitator
Esther graduated from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 2018. She is a Canadian Certified Addictions Counsellor (CCAC) and is currently working on completing a Master of Counselling program.
Esther is delighted to be a counsellor and outpatient program facilitator with Pegasus, working alongside a strong and empowering team in helping clients reach their recovery goals. Through a strengths-based and spiritually-driven approach cultivated from a centre of courage and renewal, Esther helps recovering individuals discover their values and nurture their unique healing potential. Esther finds the transformation and growth she witnesses in her clients deeply inspiring.
Esther has been a devoted volunteer for many years, as an Advanced Case Worker with Restorative Justice and more recently, a volunteer counsellor with Citizens Counselling. She credits these roles for cultivating her passion for helping individuals to move through significant and transitional moments in their lives. Through these lifeline organizations, Esther has gained experience and training in supporting people who have experienced trauma, PTSD, borderline personality disorder, anxiety, depression, codependency, substance abuse disorders, and complex behavioural issues. As a long-time resident of Victoria and a lifetime lover of the West Coast, Esther enjoys spending time near the ocean and in nature, noting both as sources of healing on her personal path of long-term recovery. In her spare time, Esther enjoys spending time with her dog, relaxing on the beach and in nature, and being of service to her recovery community.
