Located on Lachine Canal by Atwater Market, I work with clients in person and online. I treat trauma with EMDR to free you from your emotional pain, disturbing images, negative beliefs, triggers, memories, and sensations. Many of my clients can't get traction in "talk therapy", or are looking for a very focused approach to their trauma experience because they still feel "stuck". Please click on the "Schedule Consultation" button at my website to book a free 20-minute Zoom consultation.
I offer hourly, half-day, full-day, and 3-5 day 'Intensives' - they all work, just at different paces. My spoken French is limited, but my understanding is good - this is "feeling" process so we don't talk much! Mon Français parlé est limité, mais ma compréhension est bonne – c'est un processus de « ressenti », donc nous ne parlons pas beaucoup!
My rate is $140/hr, and I can offer a modest reduction in fee for LGBTQ2+ folks, students, visible minorities, or anyone challenged with accessing effective trauma counselling.
