HOW I WORK
People come to therapy with many different goals in mind. If you want to resolve a specific problem or get help making an important decision, we may chose to work short-term just until the specific problem has been resolved. However, if you’re looking to make a more comprehensive change in your life or have a deep-seated issue to deal with, we may need to use a longer time frame. As a Psychotherapist and marriage counsellor with over thirty years’ experience, I’m can tailor your therapy to meet your specific needs.
Our sessions together will be conversations. You will have the time to express yourself in whatever way you feel comfortable but I will also be active in sharing my thoughts and impressions. When I work as a marriage counsellor, I will provide you with a safe environment where each partner can express even those difficult things that need to be said.
I take a supportive, affirmative role and am comfortable exploring issues related to body, mind and spirit. I always keep in mind the impact of your community, culture and beliefs, as well as the influence of your childhood and current family.
I am interested in and respect what each person has to say. Even young children and teens feel understood and comfortable in my office. You are welcome regardless of age, cultural background or sexual orientation.
I am a member of the Ordre des travailleurs sociaux et thérapeutes conjugaux et familiaux du Québec (OTSTCFQ), the Academy of Naturopaths and Naturotherapists (ANN) and a psychotherapist registered with the Ordre des psychologues du Québec. Receipts are provided at the end of each month.
Telephone or Skype Therapy
Telephone or Skype therapy is available if you are either unable to come to the office or don't live in the Montreal area. I also offer one-time consultations if you need help with a specific issue.
