I am a clinical psychologist and member of the Ordre des psychologues du Québec.
During my doctoral studies, I completed three internships at University of Montreal’s psychology clinic and a year-long internship at the Jewish General Hospital. Throughout these experiences, I worked with adults and young adults that presented with anxiety and mood disorders, self-esteem issues, chronic pain, and interpersonal difficulties.
I offer services to individuals 20 years and up in English or French. I have basic knowledge of Spanish.
Appointments can be in person, online or by telephone.

(excerpts from RateMDs)
"She is genuine, with a great sense of humour, she is warm, and I felt very safe and cared for in her space. During our time together, she was able to challenge me while being super compassionate. I appreciated her intuitive guidance through our sessions, so that she wasn't rigidly stuck to a "plan" but was open to allowing our work to take on a natural flow."
" I find her approach compassionate and genuinely caring as well as professional and to the point."
"I have been to therapy before, but this is the first time I have felt that I "got somewhere." The sessions were very practical, and Dr. Tougas handled my problems with empathy and care. Highly recommended."
