    People come to psychotherapy for a multitude of reasons such as anxiety, depression, trauma, and unresolved grief. We often know we want more out of life, but our old coping mechanisms sometimes make us feel as if we are living life with blinders on. This can affect our self-esteem, our relationships, and our ability to tap into our unique unexplored potential.

    Psychotherapy can be beneficial because it provides a safe and supportive environment to explore and address emotional, psychological, and behavioural challenges. Through therapeutic conversations people gain insight into their thoughts and feelings, develop healthier coping strategies, and work towards personal growth and well-being. It offers a path to self-discovery and emotional healing, enabling individuals to lead more fulfilling and meaningful lives.

    I offer a non-judgmental, compassionate, and relational approach to therapy where you can talk about whatever is on your mind during your session. I often encourage clients to freely associate their thoughts and feelings, allowing for a stream-of-consciousness exploration of their inner world. This can not only reveal what animates our patterns and conflicts—this way of speaking can potentially lead to new insights.

    I invite clients to share their dreams as part of our conversation. Exploring dreams in therapy serves as a potent means to gain deeper self-insight. I also believe that creativity and psychotherapy share a deep and intricate connection, as both play pivotal roles in fostering mental health and self-expression. Fostering creativity thus becomes an integral aspect of the therapeutic journey.

    I generally work with clients who are seeking medium – to long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy. I can offer sessions for both French- and English-speaking clients. Sessions are fifty minutes long and can be done either online or by phone.  We will typically meet weekly, unless your circumstances require more frequent sessions. Sessions are done in a safe and confidential environment.

    Originally from a francophone background, I can offer sessions in either English or French. I am a graduate of a six-year training program from The Centre for Training in Psychotherapy in Toronto. I am a member of the College of Psychotherapist of Ontario (CRPO) and also a member of the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy (CAPT).

    Prior to being a therapist, I spent over thirty years working in the performing arts. I view creativity as an important part of everyday life, and I believe that my previous experience in the arts has helped me to integrate creativity into my psychotherapy practice.

    I offer a 20-minute free consultation where you can decide if we are a good match for each other. During this first conversation we will cover what brings you to therapy, gather some background about your current challenges, and answer questions you might have about the process in general.

    If you would like more information or to schedule an initial 20-minute consultation you can email me at I look forward to hearing from you.
