" I have 14 years of experience working in the health care system and different universities. I am now opening my own private practice in sexology. My specializations are: helping survivors of sexual violence (harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation and other traumas), helping people cope with mental health issues (depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar disorders, personality disorders) and crisis intervention (suicidal intervention). In sexology, in particular, I can help people questioning their sexual identity, roles and orientation. I can also help people wanting to experience a better sex life, people going through separations and needing help undo relational and sexual patterns. And lastly, as a woman of colour in Canada, I deeply understand the issues people of colour encounter in our country and I want my work as a therapist to heal the wounds of racial traumas and inter-generational wounds."
