Ingrid Abitan is a fully bilingual psychoeducator who specializes in difficulties such as ADHD, oppositional behaviors, self-regulation skills, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, school motivation, social skills and parental divorce. She also coaches parents in implementing structure, routine, consistency and strategies necessary for their child’s optimal development.
Ingrid obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at McGill University, graduating with distinction. She then obtained a Master of Sciences at the University of Montreal in Psychoéducation, a program specializing in working actively with children and teenagers living with adaptational difficulties, their families, and their environments. Ingrid is completing her courses which will allow her to practice Psychotherapy and be accredited by the Order of Psychologists of Quebec.
For almost 15 years, Ingrid has worked in daycare, elementary, high school and clinical settings providing support to children and adolescents with emotional, behavioural and familial difficulties. Ingrid works actively not only with the child in need, but with teachers, school direction and parents, since she is a strong believer that all members of a child’s immediate environment play an important role. By creating a safe space for her clients, Ingrid is determined to help them better understand their emotions and behaviours and learn strategies that will lead them to positive changes.
