For the last 22 years I have shared my time as a psychotherapist and art therapist between the Division of Adolescent Medicine at the Montreal Children’s Hospital and private practice at the Queen Elizabeth Health Centre. In addition, since 2005 I have taught in Concordia University's Masters in Art Therapy. I offer a therapeutic place for adults, children and teenagers to work individually. I work with a focus on both current maladaptive patterns, origins of current emotions, behaviours and thoughts, and a strong emphasis on one's sense of self, while always finding the strengths and resilience that is in each person.

Is your child or teen struggling? Feeling overly worried about COVID-19, going back to school and how to fit in? Or maybe your child is withdrawn or acting out? As a professional art therapist, I help kids, teens and adults find a voice through art when words alone are not enough. Art therapy is particularly well-suited to young people because it is a non-threatening way to communicate and work through difficult issues. Art therapy can also help adults process challenging emotions and explore self-expression.

The familiar saying based on an ancient Chinese proverb "The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step" is one which, to my mind invites us to reflect on our past and on our future. Perhaps your particular life's journey is not yet taking you in a fulfilling or rewarding direction. A painful family past, issues of loss, relationship conflicts, struggles with your teen, are just some types of setbacks which may leave you feeling anxious, sad, exhausted, hopeless or helpless. Today is a new day. The one in which you take that first important step toward transforming your life journey into one of meaningful growth and change.

I believe that psychotherapy in essence is a collaborative process that aims to increase psychological well-being and reduce emotional pain, loneliness and languishing which are ever present in today's world. At the heart of this process, is the positive healing relationship that develops between an individual, a couple or a family, and the therapist. I offer clients a non-judgemental, empathic space where they learn to identify and tolerate their emotions, articulate appropriately their needs to significant people in their life and work on breaking away from toxic negative cycles.

Teen Counsellors
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Montréal and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
