I'm available at this clinic: Valleyfield
M.Sc. O.T., OEQ, ACE
Mélanie holds a Master of Applied Science in Occupational Therapy from the University of Ottawa since 2009 and a Bachelor of Kinesiology from the Université de Montréal since 2007. She is a member of the Ordre des Ergothérapeutes du Québec (OEQ) and the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT).
Since entering the workforce, Mélanie has gained experience in several fields, including chronic pain, work rehabilitation and with clients with mental health difficulties. Mélanie presents a client-centred approach that takes into consideration the functional impact of the issue in all areas of the client's occupational performance. She has learned to support clients through their attentional and memory difficulties, in order to improve executive functions (memory, planning, organization, etc.), and thus facilitate their daily lives. She has completed several training courses on this subject. She has also deepened her knowledge of workstation analysis. It promotes autonomy and aims to ensure that clients are satisfied with their own performance by emphasizing positive points.
Professionally, Mélanie is currently studying through the Graduate Certificate in Driving Rehabilitation offered by McGill University. She will soon be able to offer this service at the clinic.
