" Anne-Claudie is a master’s candidate in research in sexology with a feminist, anti-racist and anti-oppressive approach. She is interested in the experiences of diverse populations such as BIPOC, people from 2SLGBTQIA+ communities and people who have mental health issues.
Benevolent and welcoming, she considers the creation of a "safer space" as essential for her pratice and to help facilitate a judgement-free dialogue that is comfortable and respectful of everyone's personal boundaries. Aiming for empowerment, she recognizes the specific strengths and realities of each person and adapts her practice to their needs.
She can help with a wide variety of issues related to sexual health and sexualities, but she also has great interest for sexual racism* (racial discrimination as a romantic or sexual partner), impacts of eating disorders, fatphobia and body image on intimacy and sexual/relational satisfaction and mixed/interethnic/interracial couples.
Outside of her clinical practice, she is a counselor for support groups for people who have eating disorders. She promotes inclusive practices in sex education in workshops/training for professionals and students in sexology. Activism against racism and sexual violence is very important for her. Finally, her services aim to help and promote the well-being, sexual health and sexual agency of all.
*Her master’s thesis studies the experiences of sexual racism of women of color who identify as lesbian/gay/bisexual in Québec’s dating context. She explores the consequences of racial exclusion, racial fetishization and ethnoracial stereotypes as well as coping mechanisms developed by these women."
