I am glad you have found your way here and considering counseling. Taking this first step takes courage and I applaud you. My name is Luc Boudreau and I am a registered Occupational Therapist and Psychotherapist. I hold a degree in Psychology and another in Occupational Therapy.
I have been practicing in this field for over 20 years. My work has taken me across Canada and to the USA. I have worked in various settings including inpatient, outpatient, community health, disability management clinics, private practice and also as a college professor. I find great satisfaction in helping people regain a sense of control and purpose in their daily lives,
People consult with me about a variety of concerns, from work problems, career changes, self esteem/self confidence, LGBTQ+ issues, anxiety, depression, PTSD, dealing with loss, history of abuse/neglect, infidelity, recovery from illness, anger management, etc.
I am trained in various therapeutic modalities, and provide an integrative approach using the tools that fit best with each person. I also have formal training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Mindfulness approaches. I believe that the relationship between the client and the therapist is the most important agent for change. My approach is empathic, supportive and I believe in working collaboratively with clients to reach their goals in therapy. I believe strongly in a client’s ability to create positive changes through their own strengths and resources. I am also bilingual in English and French and can assist you in either language.
I am thankful every day that I have the chance to serve others while doing a job that I am truly passionate about. Every year, I continue to expand my knowledge base and clinical skills through various continuing education courses. I also continue to teach various classes, seminars and educational retreats at home and abroad. Make sure to subscribe to my mailing list for upcoming personal transformation and empowerment retreats.
