Treatment Philosophy

Noemie truly believes in everyone’s unique magnificence, in supporting her clients on their journey towards self-discovery, self-awareness, inner power and inner peace, and experiencing love and authenticity in their relationships. No matter where you are coming from and what your story has been like, Noemie strongly believes that in our uniqueness, we are all worthy of love and connection, and that our struggles can hold the gift of healing and lead to transformation and new perspectives. You will hear her say that wherever you are at, you can be the change you wish to see in your world.

The frameworks she draws from have their background in Neuroplasticity (the ability of neural networks in the brain to change through growth and reorganization), Gestalt Therapy (which emphasizes personal responsibility and focuses on the individual’s experience in the present moment), Person-Centered Approach (which seeks to facilitate a client’s self-actualization via acceptance and empathic understanding), Bowen Family Systems theory (a theory of human behavior that views the family as an emotional unit and uses systems thinking to describe the unit’s complex interactions), Experiential psychotherapy (using expressive techniques to explore emotional situations from past) and Transpersonal psychology (which integrates spiritual aspects to provide greater meaning and purpose to our problems, dilemmas and crisis).

With her 20 years of experience working for and with high-profile brands across Canada, Noemie has a deep understanding of the corporate world, its systems, dynamics and objectives, how people might operate within that context and the pressures they often face. She is genuinely interested in what makes her clients tick, the challenges they face, where they get stuck and what they hope for.

Noemie offers a flexible space to share where you are at in your life, relationships, career, health, etc. at your own pace, without judgement. Her approach aims to integrate mind, body, heart and spirit, where emotions can be explored, and where healing and empowerment can occur. Noemie will support you in processing what you need, without a pre-set formula – as every session is meant to support you in your unique set of circumstances.
