I am a clinical psychologist, member of the Ordre des Psychologues du Québec. I completed my PhD at University of Montreal and my bachelor's degree at Concordia University. I practiced for 5 years as a student and doctoral candidate before getting my licence as a clinical psychologist in 2018.

Psychotherapy approach

Despite a marked preference for the approach of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), I use an integrative approach where transparency, authenticity and client-therapist collaboration are paramount. I try to adjust my approach according to my clients' needs by establishing a relationship of trust with them.

I tend to use easy to visualize/understand metaphors to illustrate my points or my understanding of your issues. I will also openly use humour to relieve stress and discomfort during therapist, when appropriate. I will not hesitate to share personal stories or insight when it is necessary/relevant.

Psychotherapy is based on team work; we will work together to establish your objectives and find ways to help you meet your goals. Commitment to the process is key to see improvements: therapy creates movement, you will have ups and downs but with some work, you will learn to find balance.

Interventions

I specialize in couples therapy and therapy for sexual and anxiety disorders. My clinical experience over the past five years includes:

  • Sexuality and sexual issues (painful intercourse for women and men, erectile dysfunction, lack of/low desire, sexual orientation and identity, sexual education, etc.)

  • LGBTQ+ populations

  • Marital or relationship issues (infidelity, commitment, conflicts, ambivalence, etc.)

  • Anxiety and stress (stress management, social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, PTSD, performance, etc.)

  • Interpersonal difficulties, social skills

  • Self-esteem

  • Perfectionism

  • Management of emotions

  • Personal growth and development

Clientele
