Natalie Morrissette, psychoeducator

I am motivated by a desire to help people struggling with behavioural and emotional difficulties. After completing an initial bachelor's degree at the Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue, I earned a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in psychoeducation from the Université de Montréal.

At the beginning of my career, I worked with adults with mental health disorders for a community resource provider in Malartic. I then moved to Montréal to continue my studies. During this time, I worked with 0- to 18-year-olds and their families for the city's child and youth protection centre. I learned a great deal from these professional experiences. After a few years in child and youth protection, I was ready for a new challenge: working with children in schools. I spent the next few years in primary schools in the Trois-Lacs school board in Montérégie.

In all these professional experiences, I was able to help not only children in difficulty, but also their parents, foster families, friends, specialized educators, teachers, school administrators and health and social services professionals.

From my office in Rigaud, I offer my services in French and English in multiple municipalities in the Montérégie West. I am a member of the Ordre des psychoéducateurs et psychoéducatrices du Québec.

My Approach

It is my view that forging a trust- and teamwork-centred relationship is crucial when working with someone with an adjustment problem. I also view the parent as a key collaborator, as parents are often experts when it comes to their children. Combining the experience of parents, educators, teachers and others with my professional expertise is a formula that promotes the young person's optimal development.

My Values

Respect. I show respect through active listening, diligence, discretion, confidentiality, courtesy and consideration for everyone I work with. Respect also means following through on one's commitments and taking responsibility for one's words and actions.

Commitment. I am committed to achieving objectives at the individual level. I am also committed to putting my skills to use to offer quality professional services.

Solidarity. Solidarity means caring about others and the common project. I demonstrate solidarity by being sensitive to the needs of people with adjustment difficulties.

Integrity, thoroughness, honesty and transparency are all values I live by
