Who are we?

Word from the founder

The CSPE began with a dream of helping children in a context that allows us to put the child's needs at the center of our concerns while mobilizing the significant players in the child's life. Now a mother of 2 wonderful children, Jeremy and Kayla-Rose, I understand even more the importance of having access to services, tools, advice and support when we need it!

I began psychoeducation services, in private practice, following my internships in child psychiatry at Sainte-Justine hospital in Montreal. A first follow-up then led to a second and then, through word of mouth, everything evolved in such a way that when I left university, it was obvious to me that I wanted to continue in this direction.

I am a passionate, ambitious, gentle and empathetic person. My desire is to be able, with my wonderful team, to help as many families as possible. We work in close collaboration with parents, educators, teachers, caregivers and any other person who has the well-being of children at heart. We all work towards a common goal, which is to help each child’s potential flourish!

​Looking forward to meeting you!

Thank you for your trust!
