I am here to tell you that you are not alone in your suffering. If you allow me, I will do my best to help you.
It is my goal as a montreal therapist to help you transcend difficult life experiences and emotional suffering and regain a sense of ease, peace, emotional balance, and well-being in your daily life despite all stressors and life events. I work with individuals and groups from a mindful, accepting, and compassionate experiential approach. I am specifically interested working with individuals suffering from emotional pain from childhood abuse or neglect; teens and adults with emotional suffering from current abuse or neglect; Borderline Personality Disorder; and self-harming and/or suicidal behaviours.
I work with adolescents and adults. I work from a clinic based in Montreal, as a montreal therapist, I am fluent in English and French. I have been trained at both Concordia University and the University of Montreal, I have a PhD in Clinical Psychology and I am pursuing a postdoctoral research in social psychology at Harvard University. In therapy, I adopt a friendly, curious, open, non-judgmental, compassionate, and focused-in-the-present attitude. I am interested in all psychological problems and emotional suffering, in particular the most complex ones.
Positive growth and change are possible for you. Please take the time to pursue my site and see if psychotherapy and my approach are the best next steps for you. If so, I will do my best to help you.
