Who am I ?
As a cognitive and behavioral psychologist, my ultimate goal is to help people get better using a very specific proven method. I specialize in helping clients with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, communication problems, and weight issues. I pay special attention to adapt the sessions to your specific needs and personal objectives by helping you improve your social and emotional health as well as address any concerns you may have about other personal issues, be it with work, your relationships, or self-image.
After encountering many tools and approaches, I chose to specialize in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT is a well-documented model encompassing many different tools such as mindfulness, focusing on actions, increasing flexibility, values work, and building motivation.
I also have expertise in eating disorders and weight management. For this, I base my work on Dr. Jean-Philippe Zermati’s Bio-Psycho-Sensorial Approach (www.gros.org). It is, to my knowledge, the best way to treat an eating disorder as well as any other kind of suffering linked to eating and body dissatisfaction. The goal is not to tell you what to eat but to help you change your eating behavior by reconnecting the mind and body. Listening to your hunger cues, understanding your emotional needs, and finding pleasure and satisfaction in food are some of the key elements that will help you find and maintain your ideal weight and especially peace of mind.
After earning a Bachelor’s degree at Wells College (Aurora, New York) and a Master’s Degree at the Université Catholique de Louvain la Neuve in psychology, I have consistently updated my education with workshops, regular trainings, and continued readings. For instance, “The key tools to leading a happier life” workshop is one of the trainings I regularly bring to the therapy room when appropriate (more).
Do you sometimes feel like certain thoughts, emotions and/or behaviors prevent you from achieving what you want for yourself?
Here are some common problems addressed in my private practice :
Lack of motivation,
Communication difficulties, etc.
Psychological consultations give you a confidential space where you can speak freely and think more in depth about what is keeping you from moving on and leading a more meaningful life. My purpose is to help you get out of any vicious cycles you might be stuck in and ask you questions that will help you shift your perspective about the problems you are facing.
You are welcome to come for in-depth therapy work, just once to ask about a particular subject or to work on a precise problem, or just to unload unnecessary burdens.
Whatever the reason may be, I invite you to ask yourself why wait to feel even worse before deciding to get better?
Consultations: Adults, adolescents, and children (if under 10, it is preferable they be accompanied). (French or English speaking consultations, as I am a native speaker of both languages).
