Ph.D. in clinical psychology

Member of the Order of Psychologists of Quebec


I'm a Montreal psychologist trained at McGill University and University of Montreal.

As a psychologist, my specialties are anxiety, depression and interpersonal relationships. I have been trained in the major fields in psychology, including couple and family therapy (systemic therapy), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and humanistic psychology. This wide range of training in different approaches and my experience working with couples, families, children, teenagers and adults, allows me to design a treatment plan that is tailored for your individual needs.

Over the past years, I have worked in a Rehabilitation center at Institute Raymond-Dewar and at the Herzl Family Medical Clinic, of the Jewish General Hospital to help individuals, couples and families.

I am a clinical supervisor to doctoral candidates in psychology and a speaker at conferences and training seminars for professionals in social and mental health. I am also an expert consultant in the media, working for the radio and television.

My areas of expertise include improving self-esteem, managing stress and anxiety, social anxiety, depression, communication skills training, relational problems, infertility, dealing with divorce for adults and children, dealing with break-ups, behavioral problems in adults and children, bereavement, health psychology, and sleeping problems.

Therapy may be provided in English, French or Spanish.
