I worked for years with individuals who have experienced acute trauma such as sexual violence and victims of crime.
**I am currently on maternity leave I am taking new clients for January 2023** I am a registered Psychotherapist and Social Worker in QC. I subscribe to the idea that suffering is a natural part of the human experience; we suffer and experience discomfort so we can cope and grow. It is possible however that we can exceed our threshold of suffering and our normal coping mechanisms are no longer sufficient. This is when our discomfort begins to feel like pain, anxiety, and depressive thoughts and is no longer beneficial to our growth. I like to think of my role as the collaborator and support system for times like these.

I specialize in cases that other therapists shun from, including severe anxiety, depression, teens and adults with emotional disturbance from abuse (psychological/physical/sexual abuse ) or neglect; borderline personality disorder; psychotic disorders, self-harming behaviors, and suicidal ideation/behaviors.
Are you overwhelmed by anxiety and depression? Are you struggling to manage your emotions and symptoms? Maybe your struggle is impacting your relationships, and taking away your hope and objectives.

Concerns include: "Am i normal?", low or absent arousal, low desire, dissatisfied desire individually or in relationship, body image, genital body image, confidence, performance anxiety, rekindling desire, sexual assault, incest, abuse , break ups, open relationships coaching, asexuality, polyamory, bdsm, kink, etc.
Loving and being attracted to each other unfortunately doesn't mean you reliably arouse one another. Many healthy, wonderful relationships in fact yearn for greater erotic connection and sexual fulfillment. By meeting with me, there is absolutely no need to be concerned about immediate commitment to ongoing treatment. For some concerns, even one meeting can be an important step. I respect your financial investment in this process and seek timely effectiveness. Trained at Columbia University, my work is non-judgmental and confidential. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I have a strong commitment to helping people heal through trauma, including African and Indigenous-centered understandings of healing and people of colour whose mental health has been greatly harmed by the effects of colonialism and subsequent marginalization, war, violence and poverty. I help clients heal the mind, an entity that can be so easily damaged by distressing experiences, while fostering an interconnection between mind, body and soul.

Domestic Abuse Counsellors
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
