Her training in clinical psychology, specialization in organizational and work psychology, as well as obtaining a DESS in intellectual disability at UQAM, illustrate her versatility and professional commitment.

She uses an analytical base in listening, as well as tools in third-wave cognitive therapies, including mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (CBT) and schema therapy.

Furthermore, her commitment extends beyond national borders, collaborating with international organizations such as the International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology (IACCP - USA). As a dedicated volunteer, she actively participates in non-governmental organizations in Canada, the United States, and Brazil.
