About Me

About Me

I started an online therapy platform based in Montreal, Canada - Mindession Psychology - so those in remote areas or with limited mobility have access to qualified psychologists from the comfort of their own homes. I therefore provide psychotherapy online as well as in person at a local private clinic in San Diego, California. I have been have practicing psychotherapy and providing parental coaching for over five years .

I value the uniquely rich experiences and knowledge I've gained from the different countries and settings I have worked at throughout my career. To put my knowledge to good use, I plan to establish Art4lives as a non-profit and consulting firm within the next year. Please get in touch if you want to stay in the loop or contribute to our cause.

Art4Lives is an initiative focused on providing art-based therapy to marginalized and/or refugee kids.

We seek to enhance their resilience and shield them from the effects of war and other types of trauma.

I started this initiative, while conducting my PhD, because I couldn't stand idly by knowing that innocent kids are losing their lives to war.

I'm always looking for volunteers or partners for this project, so please contact me if you'd like to help us tell their story.
