SERVICES OFFERED IN FRENCH AND ENGLISH - ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS
I believe healing is born out of the stories we tell ourselves and others. As a therapist, I will engage with you creatively to help you thrive. My approach is eclectic, drawing from many therapeutic perspectives. I will meet you where you are and help you discover your strengths, your goals, and your resilience.
I provide individual psychotherapy to adults facing challenges such as anxiety, stress, grief, chronic pain/illness or depression or those wishing to heal from pain stemming from abuse or childhood trauma. I will guide you gently, making sure that you are always in charge of how far you go in your process.
I will help you find strategies to help support you as you approach or revisit difficulties. My work includes Psychoeducation, Therapeutic Writing, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectic Behavioural Therapy techniques, Ego State Therapy, Narrative therapy and art in many forms to explore what is often unsaid. We will discover together which approach is best for your needs. My professional development is ongoing. My life and work experience is varied and offers me a wide lens with which to see the world. I offer therapy in French and English, have experience with Deaf Culture and am welcoming of the GLBTQ community. I work in private practice and also as an Associate with the Centre for Treatment of Sexual Abuse and Childhood Trauma. Some evening appointments .
