Psychotherapist / Psychologist"> About Marjes Masclé, psychotherapist


In 1982 I graduated from the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, with a Doctoral degree in Clinical and Developmental Psychology. After having worked at the Psychosocial Department of the Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital in Utrecht, my husband and I moved to Canada. We lived in Windsor, Nova Scotia for one year, where I worked on a grant for Family and Children’s Services on behalf of their Group Home for boys and by giving Workshops to their staff. In 1987 we moved to Bromont, Quebec, where I work as a Psychotherapist in Private Practice and am registered as a member with the Order of Psychologists of Quebec since 1988.

Since 1998, I have particularly specialized myself in Couple and Family Therapy and in 2002, I successfully completed an extensive post-graduate training program in Couple and Family therapy, accredited by the AAMFT (American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy) at the Institute of Community and Family Psychiatry of the Jewish General Hospital in Montréal.
In 2018-2019 I completed a one year program with the Couples Institute on their Developmental Model which is based on Attachment Theory and focuses on Individual differentiation and the different attachment styles within the couple.

My theoretical orientation is is an integration of systemic, psychodynamic and behavioral psychotherapy.

Whether I see people individually, as a couple or as a family, the focus is on understanding how each of us has developed certain patterns of behaviour in reaction to previous experiences over the course of our lives, which determine who we are now in relationship to others and how this understanding can help us to make better choices regarding who we want to be in the future.
