Marine’s goal in therapy is to build a safe environment free of judgment where her clients feel heard and validated. She is committed to creating a space that encourages and challenges her clients to discover themselves, to explore and embrace the unacknowledged, and embark on a growing process, leading to a healthy, more fulfilled life. Marine is highly interested in working with clients from all backgrounds and is particularly interested in working with people struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, and multicultural issues (assimilation and acculturation challenges).
Marine is bi-lingual and offers therapy in both French and English. When not in the office she spends her time fostering rescue dogs and volunteering for a dog rescue organization.
