André specializes in the treatment of anxiety, obsessive-compulsive, and stress-related disorders. The services he offers are based on a cognitive-behavioral clinical orientation, and his approach to therapy is rooted in collaboration, empathic listening, and non-judgment.
During therapy sessions, a strong focus is given to the exploration of links that may be observed between thoughts, behaviors, and anxiety or stress-related difficulties. Intervention methods generally include both in-session exercises, and strategies meant to be implemented in daily life.
With his professional and academic background, André has received training in a variety of treatment modalities, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, exposure and response prevention, inference-based therapy, and prolonged exposure therapy. He also utilizes treatment strategies found in acceptance and commitment therapy, behavioral activation, and mindfulness-based interventions.
