I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Counselling Psychology at McGill University and a student member of the Ordre des psychologies du Québec (OPQ). I previously completed an M.A. in Counselling Psychology at McGill University and a B.A. in Psychology with a specialization in Behavioral Science from McGill University. My doctoral research focuses on understanding the developmental trajectories of behavioral and substance addictions from childhood to adulthood.
I completed my clinical training at the McGill Psychoeducational & Counselling Clinic and the Sex and Couple Therapy Service at the Allan Memorial Institute (McGill University Health Centre). I have experience working with clients from diverse cultural backgrounds facing a variety of problems. I have clinical experience with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma, relationship difficulties, sexual dysfunctions, identity and self-esteem issues, substance abuse and behavioral addictions (e.g., gambling, video games, pornography use).
My approach to therapy is integrative, as I incorporate evidence-based interventions from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), emotionally-focused therapy (EFT), humanistic/existential therapy, psychodynamic therapy and mindfulness-based approaches. I place a strong emphasis on building a warm, genuine and supportive relationship with clients. I believe in working collaboratively with each client to develop concrete therapeutic goals while tailoring interventions to match their specific needs. I provide both individual and couple therapy while working in English or French.
