I provide counselling and therapy in both English and French for a wide variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, difficulties with cultural adjustment, mixed cultural identity, relationship issues, etc.

My approach to therapy:

I view counselling and therapy as a joint effort – 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. 

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

  • Depression: be it long-standing or recent

  • Anxiety, stress, feeling overwhelmed

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Pregnancy, post-partum depression, becoming a parent

  • Challenges of entering adulthood: “who am I?”, “what should I do with my life

  • Studying or working abroad: culture shock, adapting to life in France

  • Cultural identity issues: questions surrounding mixed cultural identities, being a “Third Culture Kid”

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 CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), psychodynamic theory, mindfulness, relaxation, etc…

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.
