Francois Lamarche

RSW, MSW

Francois is an experienced clinical social worker that enjoys supporting a variety of mental health concerns.  He learns from each client and encourages his clients to be honest in their sessions.  Francois’ core value is that a good therapeutic relationship is everything.

The initial sessions with Francois help to understand you as a person, your achievement, your background and how your mental health concern is affecting your life. If at any time you are concerned with his approach, Francois would be happy to go back to the drawing board to ensure you are getting the care you need.
