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.

Drama therapy combines creative interventions with verbal processing to help individuals access and process their thoughts, feelings, and emotions, develop coping skills and rehearse for life. Using a client-centred approach, I meet the person where they are, discover their strengths, and facilitate their growth and development. I also help clients foster creativity in their daily lives to encourage wellness. I have experience working with queer and trans folks, individuals living with HIV/AIDS, substance users, those experiencing grief or feeling lost and people having trouble regulating mood, behaviour, and anxiety.

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 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.

I am LGBTQ +, sex, kink, non-monogamy and polyamorous friendly.
Accepting new clients as of 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.

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.
