About  Hélène 

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I hold a Master of Science in Mental Health Counselling, and I have completed numerous post-graduate training programs in marital and individual counselling.

 

My work experience includes seventeen years within the mental health field, which is comprised of two years within the outpatient mental health unit at the Greater Niagara General Hospital, and fifteen years at a Family Health Team in Niagara Falls, Ontario. I offer PHIPA compliant teletherapy to teens, adults and couples from across Ontario via video or phone.

I have worked for many years assisting clients that struggle with trauma, panic attacks, agoraphobia, social anxiety, generalized anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD, addictions, bereavement, relationship issues, sleep disturbances, chronic illness and chronic pain, self-esteem, life transitions and career exploration, parenting, and stress and anger management.

I look forward to working collaboratively with you, to provide you with the resources to manage the complexities of life and achieve your personal goals.

My Specializations

I am trained in a variety of therapeutic orientations, approaches, and techniques. Specifically, I operate from an eclectic, holistic, person-centered, and existentialist framework, incorporating elements of Attachment Theory, Mindfulness-Based Interventions, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS), Structural Dissociation Model, Systematic Desensitization, Exposure Therapy, Relational Life Therapy (RLT), the Developmental Model and the Gottman Method. 

During our time together, I will explain the approaches that we will utilize and the rationale for any of the interventions I suggest. Research indicates that healing occurs within the context of the therapeutic relationship. Our collaboration will involve an open dialogue, which will include asking questions and sharing thoughts and feelings throughout the entire therapeutic process.
