About us

As a marriage and family therapist in Montreal, member of the OTSTCFQ and director of the Institut Therapeía, I support couples and families in their process of change, helping them to identify their needs, expectations, emotions and behaviours. I also promote the development of relational skills, such as communication, negotiation, respect and trust.

As a psychotherapist in Montreal, registered with the Registres des psychothérapeutes I offer a professional service aimed at helping people with psychological, emotional or relational problems. I establish a relationship of trust with the client and use current methods and techniques recognized by science and adapted to the client's situation.

Having trained as a counsellor at the Université de Sherbrooke and being sensitive to psychological needs of vulnerable people, I want to support them by strengthening their personal and family resources to help them cope with difficulties and reduce the risk of psychological such as depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress.

Single-session therapy is for anyone who is short of time and would like to achieve a single goal in a single session that could last from 60 to 120 minutes. It's a complete therapy session that respects the rules, standards and art of psychotherapy. By following a specific and strategic protocol, the client goes home with a sense of hope, saying: "I feel better after this session".

In order to get to know you better and build a relationship of support, an initial assessment is necessary. This will enable us to draw up an initial plan for practical care and the co-construction of an objective to be achieved.

Couple therapy plays a significant role in the lives of partners involved in a relationship. It aims to help them resolve conflicts, improve communication, clarify expectations and make informed decisions about their future, so they can lead fulfilling, sustainable lives.

Family therapy enables us to deal with relationship problems in depth and resolve them in a lasting way. It encourages emotional expression and validation among family members. It aims to improve communication, bonding and collaboration between family members, taking into account their context and history.

According to the results of the assessment, 3 types of therapies are offered in these cases:
• Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
• Flash technique
• Brainspotting, or Brief Therapy to Overcome Obstacles

Counseling is a form of psychological support designed to help people cope with difficult situations. As marriage and family counsellors, we support the ill person and their loved ones in accepting diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
