Counselling & Therapists

Bilingual clinical psychologist provides therapy in English/French. Young adults and adults. Depression, anxiety, self-esteem, cultural adjustment, mixed cultural identity, relationship issues. Trained in CBT. 75015 (La Motte Picquet)

I view counselling and therapy as a collaboration between client and therapist, working together to solve a problem and find solutions to a difficult and sometimes painful situation. 

Making the first step to seek help isn’t always easy. Sometimes, we know we need a bit of help but don’t know how to ask for it. Other times, we know there’s a problem, but don’t know how to tackle it. Or, we can feel that something’s “not quite right”, but not really know what…

People come to see a therapist for many different reasons, from short-term struggles to long-standing issues that run deep. 

Here are some of the issues that I work with regularly:

- Depression - mood disorders

- Stress management, feeling overwhelmed

- Anxiety - panic/anxiety attacks - phobias

- Procrastination

- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

- Obsessive hair pulling or skin picking

- Disordered eating

- Self esteem - low self confidence - social anxiety

- Relationship difficulties

- Pregnancy, post-partum depression and becoming a parent

- Cultural identity issues : questions surrounding mixed cultural identities, being a “Third Culture Kid”, culture shock, studying abroad, expatriation

- Questions surrounding identity, self construction, and the challenges of entering adulthood - "Who am I?", "What do I want to do with my life?"...

I adapt my work according to the issues at hand and to the person I work with. The idea is not to open pandora’s box, but to work step-by-step to find relief at the right pace. 

I work in an integrative manner – in my therapeutic toolbox include tools from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), mindfulness and meditation, relaxation, psychodynamic theory, etc…

I work both in English and French.

The most important part of successful therapeutic work is finding someone with whom you feel comfortable. I work in collaboration with many therapists in the English and French speaking mental health community – in situations where I’m not specialised in the issues at hand, or if I feel that I’m not the right therapist, I can make referrals to colleagues in Paris or elsewhere. The important thing is finding the right therapist for you.
