I am a psychologist and a psychoanalyst with over 25 years of experience. I work with individuals, couples and families.
My approach is to help the client explore their current difficulties and symptoms in the light of their present day situation and their formative year. I believe the childhood experiences are registered in the unconscious mind and are carried forward in the form of emotional and bodily memory. This emotional and bodily memory is an unconscious force, which can have powerful effects on the client’s behaviour and relationships, if it not well understood. My aim in therapy is to help the client discover and understand their unconscious mind. The client will then have conscious choices, to feel, think and act differently than their previous automatic ways of being and suffering.
Similarly, with couples and families, I try to help them to untangle dysfunctional patterns of relating. I work with couples and families to help them understand how they got to their present situation and how to develop new approaches of relating. If you think that you might like to work with me, please give me a call. I would be happy to let you know whether I could be of help.
Eliane Rivard ,is a licensed psychologist and OPQ member with over 35 years of clinical experience in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) with adults. Her approach also integrates the more recent “third wave” developments of Mindfulness, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). In a supportive and corroborative relationship with her clients, she helps those struggling with anxiety disorder (panic attacks, agoraphobia, plane phobia, generalized anxiety, social phobia, OCD) as well as those suffering from depression (unipolar or bipolar) to live fuller, less restricted lives. Other issues may include work and relationship stress, personal loss, and professional “burnout” Receipts are provided upon request.
I am a practicing clinical psychologist with specialized training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and over 21 years of experience. I offer individual psychotherapy with adults and adolescents helping with issues related to depression, anxiety, personal, work and health related stress, relationship difficulties, grief and post-trauma. I view emotional difficulties and problems of adjustment more as a signal of the need to address and explore unresolved issues and internal conflicts which interfere with personal development and relationships with others. Changes in the way one thinks, feels and relates to others takes place through working collaboratively at arriving at a better understanding and greater self- awareness. I can be reached at 514-271-0720 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I have also worked as a music therapist in Palliative Care at the McGill University Health Centre since 1984, and have extensive experience with loss, bereavement and adjustment to illness. My therapeutic approach is steeped in compassion and creativity.
My orientation is primarily psychodynamic, but I also integrate a systemic approach and cognitive strategies where helpful.

I truly believe in our capacity to grow and change.

(514) 688-0398Office Hours: By appointment
I work with individuals experiencing a wide range of difficulties. These include anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship issues (love/intimacy, work, family), life transitions (separation, divorce, mid-life), performance issues (school, work), identity issues, trauma, and grief. My approach, while primarily psychodynamic, includes cognitive strategies and active, creative strategies.
It can take courage to seek help and to face one’s problems. I bring warmth, compassion, sensitivity and respect to my work, creating a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment for the exploration and working through of issues.
A strong belief in the mind-body connection informs my approach. Giving clients tools for managing and reducing stress, and increasing feelings of well-being, can often be of significant help in terms of coping with whatever challenges are occurring. Physical symptoms can offer clues to feelings we may not be aware of, or of ways of functioning that no longer serve us.
My post-graduate training in psychotherapy took place at the Institute for Expressive Analysis in New York City. I have been in practice for 25 years, am licensed by the Ordre of Psychologists in Quebec, and am a member of the Quebec Society for Professional Psychotherapists (Société québécoise des psychothérapeutes professionnels).
Music Psychotherapy combines talk therapy with the therapeutic power of music. This approach is ideal for individuals who want a more creative approach to psychotherapy. You do not need to be a musician or have any previous experience with music, in order to be able to fully engage in and benefit from music psychotherapy. Musical portions of sessions can take a variety of forms, including music listening, improvisation, imaging to music, singing, sounding, toning and song-writing. Not every session will involve music, just as some sessions would be focused exclusively on musical expression/experiencing, and some sessions include a combination of both talking and musical expression/experiencing.
Music Psychotherapy is recommended for:
-Individuals seeking a more creative approach to psychotherapy in which non-verbal expression through the arts is included
-Individuals with trauma
-Individuals for whom talk therapy alone has not worked
-Individuals with unexplained somatic symptoms
I received an M.A. in Music Therapy from New York University and am a fully accredited music therapist (M.T.A.) and a member of the Canadian Association for Music Therapy and the Quebec Association for Music Therapists (Association québécoise des musicothérapeutes).
