Eva Newman


Working with Me
I am a Psychotherapist as well as a Marriage and Family Therapist, in private practice working in the Montreal area. I provide therapeutic interventions for individuals and couples long- or short-term goals. As well, to this experience I bring a unique insight in terms of the ability to listen and empathize, and provide you with the tools to develop and grow in a protected and supportive environment. In particular, I am an LGBTQ ally affirmative therapist. Through this process then I can help you learn to improve your relationships, reduce stress, avoid depression, and establish and achieve goals that are right for you.

My Experience and Therapeutic Approach
I have worked with individuals who suffer from various addictions, including gambling,
alcohol, and sex addiction; victims of sexual abuse; individuals who have been overwhelmed by depression and anxiety; others whose inability to make important life choices have prevented them from moving ahead; and still others with difficulties in establishing meaningful relationships. I have helped clients to deal effectively with child-parent conflict; couples who have lost their intimacy, trust, and love; divorce issues; self-esteem issues, trauma, interpersonal problems, gender issues, problems related to the workplace; general challenges of self-doubt, inadequacy, longing, frustration, stress, anger, aging, grief and loss; and other personal challenges. I do this within a framework of utilizing an integrative psychotherapeutic approach including the following therapeutic models: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Family Systems Therapy, Emotionally-Focused Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy.
The integrative psychotherapeutic approach we will use together can help you in the process of change that will bring you to a higher level of self-awareness, and to a better sense of well-being. More importantly, this approach will help to alter old patterns and develop new ways of dealing with the challenges of life. I provide a personalized program for each client, one that is best suited to your particular need. I invite you to contact me for a personal meeting during which we can discuss your goals and determine how best to achieve them.

Catherine Novac


I am a Psychotherapist, Couple and Family Therapist, and Clinical Sexologist with over 20 years experience in providing therapy services to individuals, couples, and families. I hold a Master’s Degree in Clinical Sexology from L’Université du Quebec a Montreal, and a Post-Master’s Diploma in Couple and Family Therapy from the Argyle Institute of Human Relations.

Mine is an integrative approach involving Cognitive-Behavioural Approach and Psychodynamic when working with individuals and Systemic-Interactional Approach when working with couples and families. I operate with the principles of LGBTQIA-affirmative and feminist-informed practice. Creating a sense of safety in the therapeutic environment is of primary importance as well as providing an anti-oppressive and accessible space for my clients. I understand accessibility to include, but not be limited to, sliding scales and the provision of, to the best of my abilities, physical access in terms of mobility, gender, and a scent free environment. I am also committed to working to provide a space free from discrimination on the basis of race, class, size, gender, ability, age, sexuality, religion and status. I identify as a member of the LGBTQ community and have a passion for providing services to this population.

I am able to provide insurance receipts for my services to any insurance company that accepts sexologist, couple and family therapist, or psychotherapist receipts. I also offer a sliding scale to clients based on financial need. I will be accepting new clients as of September 2018, and am able to respond to client emails within 24-48 hours. My office is located within a 4 minute walking distance of the Vendome metro. You can reach me by email at catherinenovac@gmail.com.

Veronica Blackbourn

Practitioner type: Counsellor, OCCOQ
Education: McGill Counselling Psychology M.A., 2017; Argyle Institute Psychodynamic Training Program (In progress); Canadian Psychoanalytic Society Fellowship program 2017-2018
People I work with: Individuals (adults)
Approach: Painful psychological and emotional symptoms are a form of communication from the psyche and the body. In my work as a counsellor, I seek to understand what a client’s symptoms may be saying in order to best respond to the needs they express. I see counselling as a process of self-exploration, understanding, and acceptance that can open up space to let go of old and repetitive patterns and self-concepts. The context of a warm and supportive counselling relationship makes it possible to uncover a new array of thoughts, feelings and ways of being. In this work I approach my clients, and encourage my clients to approach themselves, with both compassion and curiosity, trusting in their innate ability to change and to grow.
Insurance: no
LGBTQ: totally
Sliding scale: $60-120, geared to gross household income
Accepting clients: September
Estimated email response time: one day
Office location: downtown (de Maisonneuve at Stanley)
