Graduated from Social Work at McGill University,  Nathalie holds 30 years of experience in our healthcare system, including over 20 years in adult mental health.  She is a member of the Quebec Order of Social Workers and Couple and Family Therapists.

Being also certified in trauma intervention as well as a few therapeutic approaches, she favors a solution-focused approach which highlights the strengths and tools people already have, but may not realize they have, to move through various life challenges. Seeing the capacity for people to rebound from difficult situations is ever inspiring.

In a society aimed at performance and consumption, social isolation is more present than ever, despite our many communication tools. Treating people with humanity and respect is her utmost priority, whatever the situation. Nathalie sees an adult clientele going through difficult situations such as losses/bereavement, symptoms of anxiety and depression, relationship difficulties, stress management and the capacity to adapt to changes. She supports people experiencing an acute period in their lives, so they may re-establish a balance and sense of control over their lives. Nathalie can also provide many community resources when needed.

To favor a better balance, she engages in activities with her  dogs and other animal companions, practices meditation and gratitude, as well as enjoys walks in the forest.
