My Approach to Helping

I can help you learn to develop and sustain the relationship you have always wanted, re-discover the love that brought you together, heal the wounds that have severed your bond re-build the trust and intimacy, communicate honestly and respectfully, handle and resolve conflicts in a way that brings you closer to one another, and build shared meaning, and purpose for you and your family. Although challenging at times, making the decision to enter into therapy may help you move beyond your relationship pain and challenges and help you live your life more confidently, more passionately and more fully.
I specialize in helping singles, couples, and families dealing with communication, conflicts and other relational challenges. I am also specialized in teaching anxious and depressed children, adolescents, and adults soothing and problem solving skills to effectively cope and overcome their conditions. I am trained in clinical hypnosis, with an emphasis in treating anxiety and depression.
Sessions can be conducted in English or in French as needed. Choosing a therapist is important. I offer a 15 minutes phone consultation to give you a chance to ask me your questions and to make it easier for you to take this first step. You can start making positive changes in your life!

My Role as a Therapist

I see my role as a therapist to be "the weather", to create a climate that facilitate change

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

The therapist that have influenced me the most are Milton Erickson who was an expert in patterns interruption, and Dr. Michael Yapko who trained me in clinical hypnosis and with whom I still consult as he is a skillful positive strategist therapist who use clinical hypnosis as a tool to enhance therapy. I have been also greatly influenced by the work of Jay Haley, Aaron Beck, Viktor Frankl, John Gottman, and Sue Johnson.
