Feel so much better

After talking with Dr. Chantal, I can honestly say that I feel a lot better. I have been to other therapists who have kind of made decisions for me. Dr. Chantal made me make my own decisions. She didn’t make me feel bad about the decisions I made either. I don’t know how she did…


Initial genuine care

Dr. Gagnon is an outstanding Doctor. I came to her a few years ago at my lowest point in my life suffering from PTSD. Dr. Gagnon is a knowledgeable and skilled Doctor. I owe my current maintenance and recovery to her initial genuine care. I thank you so much Dr Gagnon.

Core of my problems

I was having relationship issues and a dear friend of mine recommended Chantal to me. I have gone to counseling on and off the past 20 years but never have gotten to the core of my problems.

Chantal warrants it

I normally do not write reviews but Chantal warrants it. If my review can help just one other person make the changes that I have with her guidance then it is worth writing.

I was able to break the cycle

Dr. Chantal has been the best motivator and supporter in my life. She helped me see life in a different perspective and now I understand people’s intentions and the way the world sees you. I hit rock bottom when I had my first session with her; I can remember our first session to our last….

I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me.

Having tried two other therapists I was not a believer in the benefits of therapy. I started seeing Dr.Gagnon at the suggestion of a family member and it was the best recommendation I have ever received. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me. I have learned so much about myself…

I’ve been able to accomplish things that I never would have been able to before visiting Dr. Gagnon

Throughout my life, I’d always suffered from anxiety. As I grew older and life’s challenges mounted, I began to experience full-on anxiety attacks. At that point, I knew I had encountered an issue much greater than I could handle on my own. From our first meeting, Dr. Gagnon proved to be well-organized, professional, and knowledgeable….
