I believe gay men have inherent worth, and that we deserve fulfilling lives.
Are you a gay man who is overwhelmed by the intensity of your feelings? Do certain situations feel triggering or remind you of a past trauma? It can feel unbearable when you’re just trying to keep it together, and hoping nobody notices when you start breathing rapidly, sweating, or shaking. Even between intense moments, there can be a low-level anxiety that feels like it’s always lurking, ready to take over at any time. Not to mention the shame about not feeling in control of your responses. The good news is that there are specific skills that can be learned to listen to your emotions and think about your past in a whole new way.

Hi! I'm Jodie-Ann. I'm a Black, queer , non-binary social worker and community organizer based in Tio'tia:ke (aka Montreal, Quebec). Sometimes we have had experiences in life that can feel heavy, and they bring up emotions that can stay with us long after the experience has ended. This can feel exhausting as it impacts our daily lives and our current relationships, and sometimes we can't understand why. With support, those experiences can be explored and worked through, creating space for the emotions that can often feel trapped.

I have over 20 years experience working with people from diverse ethnic, religious, & racial communities, LGBTQ and other cultural / social groups.
My approach to therapy is evidence-based, interactive, relational, & motivational. I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is what is most healing & helpful in therapy. I strive to create a comfortable & supportive atmosphere where difficult issues can be addressed. When people feel supported & understood; they are often more able to face challenges. I also help clients become more aware of the obstacles which prevent them from leading more satisfying lives & improving their relationships. Sometimes that may involve exploring past experiences and/or it may involve learning new concrete coping skills.

As an emotional coach, one of my major missions is to show clients, through embodied experience, how to process emotions and relate to inner experience in ways that better identify and meet their emotional needs individually and with others. The outcome of this is relief, peace, grounding, and inner trust. This is a safe space - I support LGBTQA +, ethical nonmonogamy, sex positivity, and spiritual, religious, as well as secular frameworks.

I am LGBTQ +, sex, kink, non-monogamy and polyamorous friendly.
**I am currently on maternity leave until late summer 2022** 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 have received training to provide assessments and referrals for transgender clients.
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 also specialize in issues specific to the LGBT and polyamory communities.
Therapy can help people better understand themselves and find greater meaning in their lives. People enter therapy for a wide range of reasons, often involving difficulty solving a problem in their lives on their own. Some people, for example, are having difficulty in a romantic relationship and wonder how to improve the relationship, or end it. Other people experience conflict or anxiety in a wide range of interpersonal relationships and enter therapy as a means of improving their communication skills and the quality of their relationships. I help people in both monogamous and polyamorous relationships.

Through CFT training, internship at MUSIC as well as member on transgender research, I have developed a growing competency and keen interest in working with 2SLGBTQIA+ racialized, immigrant clients and couples.
Maneuvering through the different stages of "Life Journey" can be fulfilling as well as filled with periods of high stress, emotional imbalance. Through the guiding principles of dignity, diversity, self-determination, individual therapy brings growth by focusing on your strengths and resiliency. Couple therapy can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection in all stages of their relationship. Through the process of couple therapy, I vow to help you understand and become unstruck from repetitive cycle of miscommunication, stepping on each other's toes, and triggering your raw emotions.

I have developed support groups and workshops addressing mental health issues faced by LGBTQ people and immigrants.
I would like to offer you my appreciation on how important the step you are giving right now is. Finding a psychotherapist can be daunting or disconcerting at first but the impulse that brought you here means you want things to be different, right? Maybe with less anxiety, less suffering or less loneliness. Maybe with more space to be who you are and experience more easiness to relate to others. Past traumas, being raised in non-attuned contexts and any form of oppression impose ruptures to the dialog between us and others and the internal parts of our self. These cracks generate conflicts, suffering, shame, and a self-alienation.
