I have heard from many clients that they are lost when trying to find help in tackling their mental health. They feel that they don’t have a plan in tackling symptoms and they often feel “passed around” from doctor to doctor in finding solutions to their mental health .I am dedicated to using a client-centered, trauma informed, collaborative approach to focusing on your mental health goals and addressing individual needs. As well, I incorporate psychoeducational tools to help you in maintaining your goals for the future.I hope to create a strong, safe therapeutic alliance with you in achieving your mental health goals, as well as learning new tools to overcoming future struggles.

The Balanced Practice has evolved to a team of registered dietitians and therapists on a mission to support folks in finding their perfect balance between food, body and mind. We believe that we cannot talk about food without addressing our mindset, beliefs and emotions. We work with our clients to help them walk away from diets, recover from their eating disorder and learn to reconnect to themselves so they can live their fullest life.
Our approach is weight inclusive, sexuality & gender affirming, trauma-informed and anti diet culture. We firmly believe that health is not reserved for any body type and that your recovery is possible.
Because life is too short to struggle with your relationship with food & your body.
The Balanced Practice was founded by Marie-Pier, who after struggling with an eating disorder, noticed a gap in our healthcare system. Through her recovery, she noticed that treatment was often not inclusive, non collaborative or client centered and often offered only short term support.
