Various factors play a role in the many ways we construct our identities. I work with adults, and young adults struggling with emotional difficulties that impact their abilities to be their best selves. As a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, and board certified psychiatrist in Haiti, I strive to create a safe and empathic space that allows for in-depth exploration and supports self-growth and change, a space where one can express and explore painful feelings, share difficult life circumstances and grow more resilient.
I conduct sessions in English, French and Creole. I also offer online sessions.
Challenges associated with acculturation for first and second generation immigrants, issues around gender and affectional orientation, are areas of interest. When working with transracial adoptive same-sex and different-sex parents, we build, together, a space where similarities and differences are addressed, and in which families can find meaning.
I work with cancer patients and their families, providing them a supportive and empathic space to explore their options, redefine and discuss their priorities. I also run a free, monthly Support Group, in Creole, for Haitians dealing with cancer.
