We offer therapy for individuals of all ages, couples and families. In addition to standard verbal psychotherapy, we also offer couple therapy, art therapy, drama therapy, psychoanalysis, and psychological testing.

Individual Psychotherapy

All of our therapists provide verbal therapy for individuals of all ages. Regular psychotherapy gives you space to discuss ongoing and past issues while gaining new insights into your emotions and behaviors and an understanding of the different patterns you may find yourself stuck in. Individual psychotherapy can help you determine changes or goals you'd like to work toward. Therapy sessions are usually held once or twice a week at a set time. Our therapists are trained in a range of psychotherapeutic models and techniques.

Couple and Family Therapy

We work with all types of couples and families. We can help you work on parenting skills, intimacy, trust, and communication. We can also help you address issues of grief and mourning, infidelity, trauma, separation, divorce, remarriage, and life transitions (leaving home, starting school, preparing for retirement, etc.). For more information please consult the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.

Art Therapy

Art therapy introduces the creative process to psychotherapy and can be used to address any of the issues that would be broached in individual, couple, or family therapy. It enables you to express yourself through visual language, which helps to deepen your understanding of your inner world, of relationships, and of life struggles. Art can offer creative ways of understanding problems and working through them. The artistic process itself can be therapeutic. No artistic skills or creative background is required to benefit from art therapy. For more information please consult the Art Therapy Association of Quebec (Association des art-thérapeutes du Québec).

Drama Therapy

Drama therapy is a psychotherapeutic treatment that uses the performing arts in the healing process. Through the drama therapy work, clients can share stories, explore problems, express feelings and achieve catharsis. The drama therapist uses drama processes such as game play, improvisation, storytelling, role play, and products such as puppets, masks, and plays or performances to help clients understand their own thoughts and emotions better, develop new behaviors and solve problems. Drama therapy offers another avenue to clients who may find it difficult to grow in the traditional talk therapy model or who could benefit from a more creative healing process. For more information please consult the National Association of Drama Therapy.

Psychoanalysis

Psychoanalysis is based on the belief that individuals are often unaware of many of the factors that determine their emotions and behavior. These unconscious factors may create unhappiness, sometimes in the form of recognizable symptoms and at other times as troubling personality traits, difficulties in relationships (work or love), or disturbances in mood and self-esteem.

The patient comes for psychoanalysis between two to five times a week, lies on a couch, and attempts to say everything that comes to mind. As the patient speaks, hints of the unconscious sources of current difficulties gradually begin to appear. These sources appear in certain repetitive patterns of behavior, in the subjects which the patient finds hard to talk about, in the ways the patient relates to the analyst. The analyst helps elucidate these for the patient, who refines, corrects, rejects, and adds further thoughts and feelings. During the time that an analysis takes place, the patient wrestles with these insights, going over them again and again with the analyst and experiencing them in daily life, in fantasies, and in dreams. Patient and analyst join in efforts not only to change crippling life patterns and remove incapacitating symptoms, but also to expand the freedom to work, play, and to love.

Psychological Testing

We offer psychological testing for learning difficulties and ADHD to children and adults.
