People often seek therapy when they would like to work on issues such as stress management, personal loss or life cycle changes. In individual therapy, I support clients by providing specific strategies for changing unwanted behaviours or thoughts. A couple in distress may feel there is no way out of their troubled relationship. By observing the interactions between the partners I help couples change dysfunctional behaviours, strengthen friendship, increase intimacy, resolve problematic patterns of communication, improve emotional attachment, build resilience and enjoyment that each partner derives from the relationship.
Over the years, I have helped clients with issues of self-esteem, identity, anxiety/depression, emotional self-regulation, trauma, and illness. I also received specialized training in sex and couple therapy over the span of 2 years. I therefore have extensive training in issues related to sexual desire/arousal, sexual pain, premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. I am also specialized in couple issues, including communication, emotional and sexual intimacy, commitment (e.g. divorce, infidelity, negotiating open relationship), and navigating major life transitions (e.g. childbirth, illness, changes in employment).
Psychotherapy is a good place to ease suffering, to arrive at more satisfying decisions, and to gain vitality. Are you worried about certain symptoms, or feeling unable to cope with emotions? Maybe you are discouraged, confused, or unsatisfied with "stuck" patterns in your relationships. Therapy offers a re-looking at what is close to us already. Sometimes, we recognize what we know, but in a different way. What frees us from lonely paralysis or the repetition of unsatisfying behaviour or thinking is the presence of another. This blind circle of reflection only opens up when there is someone to talk to.
Reaching out for help can be hard. It is understandable to want support when dealing with difficult experiences. Deepening our understanding of ourselves and what we have been through can help identify inner wounds and create opportunities for healing, growth and connection with self and others.
Does your child struggle with anxiety? Do worries make it hard for your child to settle into sleep? Does he or she avoid trying new things or fear being away from you? While some worry is normal, chronic anxiety can undermine a child's sense of safety and limit his or her ability to face new challenges and develop self-efficacy. Well-intentioned parents often respond to their child's worries in ways that actually make things worse. In my virtual workshop for parents of anxious kids, I offer strategies that help children feel more secure, confident and resilient, so they can move through anxious feelings more easily.
Not currently taking new clients! I practice individual psychotherapy with an adult population. I am particularly interested in treating complex trauma (difficult childhood, repeated traumatic events, abusive relationships, or military trauma), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, as well as Mood Disorders (depression, burnout, adjustment difficulties) and Anxiety Disorders (Social or performance anxiety, generalized anxiety, phobias, perfectionism, etc.) I often work with people who need help with self-esteem, stress management, assertiveness, difficult life situations, grief, burnout and post-partum difficulties.
I'm a psychologist, member of the Ordre des Psychologues du Québec (OPQ). I have experience working with a diverse adult clientele suffering from worry/anxiety, rumination/depression, and attachment/relationship difficulties. I work from the premise that no matter how great your difficulties, there is more right with you than wrong with you. With compassionate presence and gentle guidance, my aim is to help you embark on a transformative journey where you can discover resources deep inside of you that can help you move toward healing past emotional injuries and leading a rich and meaningful life.

You are seeking support and assistance as you work through your issues. You understand that having someone who understands much of the inner workings of your head and heart and who can offer an objective perspective can be a valuable and comforting ally in your growth and recovery.
I am a Psychotherapist, Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Supervisor (both in my private practice, as well as for McGill post-graduate students) and licensed Couple and Family Therapist with 30 years experience. I understand that acknowledging a need for therapy may not be easy. The thought of confronting painful situations and relationships, past or present, may cause discomfort and anxiety. My hope is that in working together, I will be able to ease you through a difficult and challenging process; one which will help you to create healthier pathways to more functional and satisfying relationships, along with an enhanced sense of meaning in your life.
The familiar saying based on an ancient Chinese proverb "The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step" is one which, to my mind invites us to reflect on our past and on our future. Perhaps your particular life's journey is not yet taking you in a fulfilling or rewarding direction. A painful family past, issues of loss, relationship conflicts, struggles with your teen, are just some types of setbacks which may leave you feeling anxious, sad, exhausted, hopeless or helpless. Today is a new day. The one in which you take that first important step toward transforming your life journey into one of meaningful growth and change.
Seeking help takes courage. Looking for a caring therapist that will listen to you without judgment is the first step towards change. With your willingness to change we can work together and explore what is impeding your growth and help you make the changes necessary for you to live the life to which you aspire. My goal would be to help you feel better - whether that is with yourself, with your partner, at work or with your family.
My career began at 22. Five companies later, a career in educational leadership, I discovered that I wanted to work with women just like you to teach you how to overcome personal and professional hardships by building the career and lifestyle you want. You see, I know what it takes to make tough choices regarding career, relationship, family, and love for the greater good. Most importantly, I understand and am qualified to help you make life-changing decisions that will positively impact your future. Becoming a Coach and working with women to help them reach their full potential is not just my job; it's my passion.
I provide therapy services to adults who are looking to make positive changes in their lives by developing their strengths and devising new strategies to deal with recurring problems. I recognize that therapy can be emotionally-intense and I aim to create a comfortable and nonjudgmental space where clients can feel free to explore and discuss their difficulties. I work most often with clients on the treatment of anxiety, depression, relationship issues and difficulties related to self-esteem.
