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.

Dr. Dominique Cloutier détient un doctorat en psychologie de l’Université du Québec à Montréal. Elle est psychologue clinicienne agréée par l’Ordre des Psychologues du Québec.
Dominique détient une expérience clinique concernant une diversité de problématiques telles que les troubles anxieux, les troubles de l’humeur, les troubles de personnalité, les troubles alimentaires et les troubles d’attachement. Depuis plusieurs années, elle accompagne des individus souffrant de difficultés sur le plan émotionnel, interpersonnel et/ou familial dû à diverses situations : deuil, séparation, dépression, anxiété, traumatismes de l’enfance liés à des abus psychologiques, physiques et sexuels, transition de vie. Dominique possède de plus une expérience en ce qui a trait aux difficultés et aux enjeux liés à la période périnatale et elle accompagne les (futurs) parents dans leur expérience.
Dans sa pratique clinique, elle exerce au sein d’une clientèle très variée et issue de diverses cultures et communautés. Elle privilégie donc un travail clinique dit intégratif et alimenté par différentes orientations et courants de pensée selon les besoins de chacun et en s’appuyant sur les qualités et les forces uniques à chacun.
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.

Areej Siddiqui

I have worked for eight years in generalist practice, and for three years each pursuing specialization in trauma therapy and sex therapy. My approach is grounded in curiosity, discovery, and collaboration. I hold faith in clients’ capacities to direct their own lives, and I enter into the therapeutic process as a reverent and humble companion. Together we might invite the unexpressed, listen for possibility, play with new and different self-narratives, and arrive at ways of moving onward that align with who you would like to be in the world. The ideas I introduce and directions I might pursue with clients are informed by feminist and queer theory, developmental psychology, perspectives on attachment and differentiation, and contemporary nervous system theory. Clients often leave with new understandings of themselves and their difficulties, enabling new and different actions in their lives.

In addition to a Masters in Couple and Family Therapy, I have pursued additional training in EMDR, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and couples therapy to address sexual issues. I enjoy working with a wide variety of folks—including the consensually non-monogamous, those among the lgbtq2s+, those in multi-cultural families or partnerships, and with experiences of immigration in their family history.

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.

John Ellis

A humanistic existential therapeutic approach with sound principles and psychology helps people as much as mindfulness, meditation and medicine. A therapeutic relationship can be an agent of positive change and growth in your life. The human condition requires some health and healing. As a fellow traveler I hope to help people along their journey.
