Lou-Ann Morin (BSc) is currently a PhD candidate in psychology at the Université du Québec à Montréal. Guided by a benevolent interest in human nature, she has been practicing for five years as an intern or phd candidate in psychology, using an integrative approach strongly influenced by the existential humanist model. In particular, she accompanies the person in developing their experience and their difficulties. To improve the effectiveness of the therapeutic approach, she also integrates interventions from different approaches, including cognitive and psycho-corporal approaches.
Lou-Ann first did an internship in psychiatry at the outpatient clinic of the Montreal Mental Health University Institute, then at a general clinic offering services for low-income peoples. She then worked for more than two years for a private clinic working with people with a variety of difficulties before joining the Meraki team.
Her training allows her to support people over 16 years of age experiencing a variety of relational or emotional difficulties. She also trained in health of trans and non binary peoples at the Institute for Sexual Minority Health and participated in the cross-cultural intervention training of the Sherpa organisation. Her research interests are diverse and include the links between mental health and marginalized people, as well as the links between the arts and the field of psychology.
