Many of us face times in our lives when we need support to get through difficult periods. I see psychotherapy as a safe space to explore yourself, gain self-insight and understanding, and develop tools and resources to face the ups and downs of life. Since 2011, I have had the chance to work with adults with various needs and challenges. I have supported clients to work through relationship difficulties, repetitive patterns that were no longer serving them, anxiety, depression, painful emotions related to present or past events (including traumas), self-esteem issues, grief and loss, and adjustment to chronic illness .

I specialize in treating adults and adolescents (16+) struggling with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, relationships, addictions, sexuality and chronic illness . My clients tell me that therapy works best for them when we take the time to develop a trusting professional relationship in which it becomes possible for us to understand and explore more deeply the inner conflicts, feelings, patterns and obstacles that are causing pain and holding them back. I offer a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space. My clinical approach draws primarily from psychoanalytic psychotherapy, but I also integrate research and training in CBT, mindfulness and family systems theory.

I also deal with chronic illness , and addictions.
I am an experienced, mental health professional with a diverse private practice in the West Island area of Montreal. I will set up Skype and/or telephone sessions for those who are unable to meet face-to-face due to distance or other factors. I see individuals, couples, families, and groups of all ages. I am pleased to be able to offer “understanding through play” with children. Rather than having one set modality, I prefer to join with the clients where they see themselves. We can then work together in dynamic ways meant to meet individual and specific needs.

Music has an amazing capacity to help us heal our pain. As an alternative to talk therapy, music therapy can help you improve your emotional and psychological wellbeing. You can harnesses music, as a means for soothing and regulating emotions, expressing and exploring life experiences, redefining who you are and changing how you connect to the world. Music is deeply connected to your memories, culture, identity, relationship experiences and beliefs. Whether you are a seasoned musician or simply a music lover; music is the language of emotion. This is an experiential, creative approach to therapy that anyone can try.

“Somatics” are the lived experiences of our bodies. In our sessions, you (re)learn how to be comfortable in your own skin so your attention can be redirected toward other purposes. By resetting and expanding your nervous system’s responses, your day-to-day life can feel less overwhelming, and your access to joy, connection, trust, physical energy, and rest increases. Benefits of this approach may include increased felt sense of your healthy boundaries, improved sleep, increased ability to fluctuate between different states of intensity in life without feeling stuck, and ability to attend to your needs first while caring for others.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Montréal are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Montréal then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Montréal, or Child Psychologists in Montréal.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues.
