Dr. Quintana completed her doctoral studies at the University of Quebec in Outaouais. As part of her practicum training she provided therapy at Montfort Hospital and the Laboratory of Anxiety Disorders in Québec. Currently, she offers assessments and treatment in English, French and Spanish to adults with a range of difficulties including anxiety, mood disorders, obsessive-compulsive and related disorders, personality issues, insomnia and trauma-related disorders. She also works with clients struggling with self-esteem and assertiveness. Dr. Quintana also provides treatment of anxiety through the use of virtual reality equipment. Research has shown, than this new evidence-based technology seems to be preferred by some clients over the traditional methods of exposure because it provides a safe, controlled and less confrontational environment to face their fears. Dr. Quintana has been trained throughout her doctorate studies in regards to this type of treatment by the Cyberpsychology Laboratory. Her main approach is using Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy while integrating Interpersonal Therapies to best suit the needs of her clients. Her focus is to create a warm atmosphere fostering trust in which clients feel comfortable to express their needs and work towards their goals.
