Dr. Cory Hrushka
My main passion and specialty is Sexuality, with a secondary focus on violence related issues, trauma and couple counselling issues.
Sexologist specialized in counselling, Laurence is a member of the Ordre des Psychologues du Québec (OPQ). In addition to her degree in sexology, she has a certificate in Toxicomanies: Prévention et intervention from the University of Montreal and she has also completed a training on Post-traumatic Stress Disorders at McGill University.
I am passionate about helping women with sexual issues, including concerns with desire, pain, orgasm, and pleasure. As I was raised LDS (“Mormon”), I also enjoy working with current or former members of the LDS church. I am poly- and kink-affirming, and have some lived experience with poly.
I believe that meaningful connection is a fundamental part of effective counselling. My approach draws on narrative, existential, and attachment-based influences and I believe that a new therapy must be created for each patient’s unique story.
I am here to assist you in processing difficult emotions that kept you stuck in a habitual pattern that no longer serves your purpose. I use a collaborative, curious and genuine approach in getting to know you as a person and your story.
Chloe aims to help people cope with distress and difficulties they are experiencing while also striving to help them develop an awareness and understanding of emotions, thoughts, and the meaning underlying their struggles.
Specializing in supporting sex workers, LGBTQ2S+ individuals and survivors of trauma, she cultivates an inclusive, safe and anti-oppresive space for all
You are the expert in your experiences, and I view my role as a person in solidarity and support, as well as an accomplice in your journey. My practice focuses on queer and trans communities, sex workers, and folks in non-traditional relationship networks.
My therapeutic passions align with my lived experiences and education around attachment, relationships, sex/sexuality, and grief. I know first hand that how our brains and bodies process the world affects how we explore and execute attachment.
