My approach
My private practice is a welcoming environment where children, teenagers and adults experiencing difficulties can come and speak freely and in confidentiality about their concerns, without fear of being judged.
My approach to therapy is integrative; I use a selection of therapeutic approaches, depending on the situation and the specific needs of the patient. My consultations are interactive and based on collaboration and mutual trust.
I am specialized in Developmental Psychology, a field that examines the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional changes that occur over the course of life, from childhood to adulthood. This developmental perspective provides a holistic approach that permits a better comprehension of the specificities and challenges of each key period in life.
In working with clients, my objective is to help the person reach their fullest potential.
Working with young children through adolescents
With young children, I work closely with families and plan treatments according to their assessed needs. I also counsel and give support and training to parents as needed, to meet each client’s unique needs.
I also provide counseling for pre-teen and teenagers, in a way that assures them of my commitment to their privacy, but also clarifies that I am equally committed to their safety, and to creating an open dialogue with their parents and caregivers. I seek to help them understand and cope with the physical and emotional changes that happen during these years, as well as offering tools and techniques to help them deal with the life challenges they face.
In my work with young adults with developmental issues or chronic illness, I am practiced in techniques designed to help them achieve increased self-sufficiency and confidence.
Adult counseling
With adults, my approach is integrative. I apply a range of proven methods and techniques holistically, in order to respond to patients and their varying problems in the most considerate, effective and appropriate manner. I offer adults tools and techniques to help them better understand the nature of their difficulties, and to recognize dysfunctional patterns of thoughts and behaviors. I then collaborate with them to gain insight on how to regulate their emotions or modify behaviors so that they can build positive relationships, overcome work and life challenges, achieve their goals, and improve the quality of life.
Adaptation and intercultural issues
Complementing my clinical studies, I have also been trained as an intercultural psychologist, drawing upon my personal experiences growing up and then studying in France, the USA and the United Kingdom. I understand first-hand the challenges of adjusting to unfamiliar environments, and can offer support for navigating all types of transition and adaptation issues, whether at school, work, or in social settings.
Frequently asked questions
When should you consult?
Although each person makes their own decision, there are some signs that it is time to consult with a psychologist. Children may be slow to socialize, or find it difficult to interact positively with other children, caregivers or parents. An older child may have increased problems with schoolwork, become withdrawn or irritable, or engage in unhealthy or unsafe behaviors. Teenagers and adults can exhibit similar signs, leading to difficulties in staying in school, holding a job, or pursuing fulfilling personal and professional relationships.
If you feel that your child, or that you, have difficulty handling challenges or life transitions, want to reduce stress or unhappiness, need help in clarify life goals, or wish to improve relationships, a consultation offers a safe opportunity to confidentially explore your concerns.
What is an integrative approach?
An integrative approach does not restrict itself to one single framework. On the contrary, an integrative approach unites various proven methods and techniques, in order to respond to patients and their unique set of issues in the most effective and appropriate way.
My consultations are interactive, patient-centered, and based on collaboration and mutual trust.
What is Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)?
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is one of the methods that I use, depending on the patient’s specific difficulties and distinctive needs, though I integrate other approaches as needed.
CBT is a therapeutic approach that addresses dysfunctional emotions and maladaptive behaviors. It has been scientifically tested and found to be effective in many clinical trials, for many different disorders and for a wide range of patients. CBT seeks to help patients understand their cognitive processes and to recognize maladaptive behaviors in order to modify them, through a number of goal-oriented procedures. Patients develop specific skills to respond to respond to distressing situations or emotions and to modify dysfunctional behavior
