Lou-Ann Morin (Psy.D./Ph.D.) is a psychologist at the Meraki Health Center. Guided by a benevolent interest in human nature, she practices psychotherapy by adopting an integrative approach strongly influenced by the existential humanist model. More specifically, she accompanies people in the development of their experience and their difficulties while respecting the complexity of each individual. In addition, she believes that the most important factor in any therapeutic process is the relationship of trust that is established between a client and a therapist. To improve the effectiveness of the therapy, she also integrates interventions from different known therapeutic methods (systemic, cognitive, psychocorporal).
Lou-Ann first did an internship in psychiatry at the outpatient clinic of the Mental Health University Institute of Montreal, then in a community clinic offering services for people with low incomes. She then worked for more than two years as a doctoral student 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 living a variety of relationship or emotional difficulties. She has also trained in trans and non-binary health, and participated in the cross-cultural training of Sherpa. Her research interests are diverse and include the links between mental health and marginalized people, as well as the links between creativity and the arts in the field of psychology. In addition to working as a therapist, she teaches psychology at CEGEP and in universities.
