It was my desire to make a positive change in people’s lives that put me on the path of acupuncture. I graduated from College de Rosemont in 2016 after 3 years of fulltime studies with classes in both Chinese and Western medicine.

The program included internships at the school clinic and I also chose an internship in acudetox (treatment of addiction) at the Centre de réadaptation en dépendance de Montréal (CRDM)1. This is where I developed a special interest in the treatment of addiction and trauma relief which I keep pursuing through continuing education and a lot of reading and self-study.

After graduation, I bought a clinic in Lac-Megantic, where I have been treating a wide variety of health problems ranging from pain over digestive disorders and chronic diseases to mental and emotional problems. I also worked several months at Physiotherapie Universelle in Pointe-Claire, where I took care of patients referred to me by physicians to help with pain due to traffic or work accidents.

Being torn between two distant locations was costly in both time and energy and so I decided to commit myself to the West Island Community.
