Traning & Qualifications
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and a member of the Order of Psychologists of Quebec (OPQ). I obtained my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Concordia University in 2017. During my 8 years of graduate training in clinical psychology, I've had the opportunity to work within several Montreal hospitals, notably, The Douglas Hospital, Montreal General Hospital, Saint-Mary's Hospital and The Royal Victoria Hospital. Within these settings, I've had the opportunity to work with a variety of populations but have specialised in treating adults suffering from depression, chronic pain, burnout and interpersonal problems. I've also worked within Applied Psychology Center at Concordia University and McGill Mental Health Services which focused on a young adult student population.
Could I be the right therapist for you?
Finding the right person to help can sometimes be difficult as it can be challenging to find someone that you feel understands what you've been through and where you'd like to be. My goal in therapy is to help you feel understood and from that point we can work as a team to help you achieve your goals. I aim to make therapy inviting and comfortable while also helping you get to the root of your problems. I tailor my approach to each person and use an integrative approach based on my experience with multiple theoretical orientations to guide therapy.
Sessions are typically 50-55 minutes in length. In some circumstances, we may discuss exercises to be completed at home if your situation warrants it.
If it sounds like I might be a good fit for you and you would like to schedule an appointment don't hesitate to contact us by phone 514-548-3550 or email.
Let's talk about stress
A look at my doctoral research
Research that I conducted along with my supervisor, Carsten Wrosch, Ph.D., showed that being optimistic can help protect us against the effects of stress. Take a look at this interview with CTV for more information. Or read about it on Psychology today!
