Beautiful Nature

Nafisa Moallim, MSW, RSW

As a Somali-Canadian therapist, I possess a wealth of knowledge navigating two identities and understanding trauma. My approach to therapy is pro-Black, pro-choice, pro-queer, and pro-trans rights. I support all cultural backgrounds, religions, sexual orientations, and gender identities. 

Being a Registered Social Worker with a Clinical Master of Social Work, I am aware that therapy  can be daunting and is stigmatized in many communities. Due to systemic barriers related to racism, sexism, etc., we may have been taught to minimize our trauma, which can negatively impact our overall well-being. To build trust with clients who may  have internalized stigmas related to mental health, I use a relational approach.

I firmly believe that healing requires a safe space to express hurt and pain.  I am committed to creating that safe space for your therapeutic journey.

At Moallim Wellness, the goal is to teach wellness in a manner that is culturally responsive and sustainable for your lifestyle. Through exploration of your life history, we will work together to identify strengths, areas for support, and methods for healing.


Moallim Wellness resides on amiskwacîwâskahikan - Treaty 6 Territory and Métis Nation of Alberta Region 4. This is the traditional land of the Nehiyaw (Cree), Denesuliné (Dene), Nakota Sioux (Stoney),  Anishinaabe (Saulteaux) and Niitsitapi (Blackfoot), and many more First Nations Peoples. We acknowledge and honour this land on which we work, learn, and cohabitate.
