Dominique Cloutier

Dr. Dominique Cloutier holds a doctorate in psychology from the Université du Québec à Montréal. She is a clinical psychologist licensed by the Ordre des Psychologues du Québec.
Dominique has clinical experience in a wide range of issues, including anxiety disorders, mood disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders and attachment disorders. For many years, she has worked with individuals suffering from emotional, interpersonal and/or family difficulties due to a variety of situations: bereavement, separation, depression, anxiety, childhood trauma linked to psychological, physical and sexual abuse, and life transitions. Dominique also has experience with the difficulties and issues associated with the perinatal period, and she accompanies (future) parents through their experience.
In her clinical practice, she works with a highly varied clientele from a variety of cultures and communities. Her clinical work is therefore integrative, drawing on different orientations and currents of thought according to the needs of each individual and building on the unique qualities and strengths of each person.
Dominique sees therapy first and foremost as an intimate space in which to feel supported and understood in the face of painful situations. This space allows us to connect with our human emotional experiences and thus improve our ability to recognise our emotions, by naming and experiencing them in order to regulate them better. Therapy also enables us to become aware of our ways of thinking and the behavioural choices/patterns that contribute to our current problems. Finally, Dominique attaches great importance to the therapeutic alliance and has created a warm atmosphere based on compassion, trust and humour, because therapy is also a place where we can share and celebrate our successes, our moments of pride and joy.
She offers her services in French and English to teenagers and adults.

Dominique considère la thérapie comme avant tout un espace intime qui permet de se sentir soutenu et compris face aux situations douloureuses que l’on traverse. Cette espace permet de connecter avec nos expériences émotionnelles humaines et ainsi d’améliorer nos capacités à reconnaitre nos émotions, en les nommant et les expérimentant afin de mieux les réguler. La thérapie nous permet par ailleurs de prendre conscience de nos façons de penser et de nos choix/patrons comportementaux participants à nos problèmes actuels. Enfin, Dominique accorde une grande importance à l’alliance thérapeutique et a créé un climat chaleureux fondé sur la compassion, la confiance et l’humour, car la thérapie est aussi un endroit où l’on doit pouvoir partager et célébrer nos réussites, nos moments de fierté et de joie.
Elle offre ses services en français et en anglais à une clientèle adolescente et adulte.

Andrea Olsen

I am a therapist who empowers you through meaningful care. I have been there - the struggle, the trauma, the trouble navigating difficult and overwhelming feelings, and the pain of not feeling like yourself or having much hope. I know that seeking therapy isn’t an easy step and I commend you for starting your journey by looking to therapy. I am here to support you in finding what is best for you to reach your goals. If you work with me I promise you a safe space where you can process difficult feelings, and work through triggers that are no longer serving you. I help you re-establish your connection to self and gain an intimate understanding of all that is going on physically, spiritually and emotionally. I am here to journey with you into the depths of you true being. You are worthy of care.

Most of my clients are surprised by the humour and play I bring into our sessions together. Therapy with me is about experiencing all emotions- the fun, the free, the hopeful, as well as processing and giving space for the difficult emotions; the fears, the hurt, the grief, the anger and the sadness.

I use a gentle multi-modal approach rooted in the principles of neuroscience, pulling from therapeutic models such as gestalt therapy, somatic therapy, EMDR, person-centred therapy, existential therapy, feminist therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness and emotionally focused therapy.

What does all of that really mean?

It means that you are unique and I will use different modalities to curate the best approach for you and help you meet your therapeutic goals.

I hold a Masters degree in Counselling. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with BCACC, a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC) and psychotherapist with the CCPA. I am a white, cisgender female. I deeply value allyship with BIPOC and 2SLGBTQIA+ communities and understand privilege and oppression and the roles these play in mental health. I work and live on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

With curiosity, compassion, kindness and some humour, I would be honoured to support you as your therapist.
