Profile - Ordre professionnel des psychologues du Québec
Description of Clinical Pratice
I offer individual psychotherapy services in French and English for adults of all ages. Through my professional experiences, I had to intervene and develop an ease with a diversified clientele. I give you some examples here, but it's not a complete list: people living with anxiety, depression, victims of sexual abuse, people living with either deep discomfort, embarrassment or shame about their sexuality, as well as issues about their femininity/masculinity.
I also intervene with people in the LGBTQIA+ community. If you are trans, I want to specify that I am not trained to offer you the letters of recommendation for hormone therapy and surgeries. For other needs than those associated with these letters, it will be my pleasure to see you in therapy.
As a sexologist and psychotherapist, I also offer sex therapy services that focuses on main themes of human sexuality such as sexual, relationship and affective difficulties, as well as those related to health (see the section on reasons to consult).

Hello to you,
You will find in this personal profile some details which, I hope, will allow you to have relevant information and will help you choose a professional that will be able to guide you adequately in your journey.
As for my professional background, I have a Bachelor's degree in sexology, as well as a master's degree in clinical sexology from the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM).
In order to bring together my passion for clinical work and research, I am currently pursuing my studies and doing my doctorate in sexology at UQAM. You can find more information about my research interests by going to the research section of my website.
I have a Sexologist's license issued by the Ordre professionnel des sexologues du Québec (OPSQ), a Psychotherapist's license issued by the Ordre des psychologues du Québec. In addition, I have a certification to asses sexual disorders issued by the OPSQ.
Schedule of Consultation
I am available on Mondays to receive you in therapy. The available time slots are during the day.
Fees of Consultation
Each session is 50 minutes long and costs 90 $, payable in cash with the exact amount.
With my clients, I adopt an empathic, open and nonjudgmental approach. Throughout your follow-up, we will be able to discuss and establish together goals that make sense to you according to your needs. This shows the dynamic and collaborative aspect of the therapy. I am committed to developing a therapeutic relationship of trust with you, since it is a central component of a psychotherapy process.
For me, the collaborative aspect also comes from the fact that I have an active role in the therapeutic relationship, where I get involved and intervene during our sessions. Yes you read correctly, I am a therapist who talks during sessions, but it is important for me to do it while giving you the space you need, because after all therapy is a time that you dedicate to yourself and your well-being.
My main theoretical approach is humanistic-existential and I also use cognitive-behavioral methods (e.g., cognitive restructuring). The intervention is adapted to your particular characteristics and needs.
