ADMINISTRATION

Hélène Nadeau

Executive Director

After completing my training in art education, I worked in museums as an educator. Through my professional life and with the addition of training, I have become a manager of NPOs in the cultural and educational fields. To be at LumiVie is to have the chance to work in a caring community for human beings in need.

Élyse Désilets

Conselor

Empathic and compassionate listening is at the heart of my practice as a grief counsellor. I seek to offer personalized meetings, in order to respect and welcome the needs of each person. Whether you are a child, a teenager, an adult or a senior, a caregiver or not, going through a bereavement is a difficult life experience. Being supported allows you to come to terms with the loss and to gently move through the grieving process.

Line Bilodeau

Executive Director Assistant

Administrative assistant in a private company for several years, I reoriented my professional career towards the helping relationship in 2009.

Seduced by the humanistic approach taught at the Centre de relation d’Aide of Montréal, I completed my 3-year training, adding a specialty in grief support.

LumiVie is a work environment that allows me to combine the two worlds of administrative management and counselling, a world that involves both the head and the heart.

Conselors

France Bilodeau

As a counsellor at LumiVie, my role is to support, guide and help the bereaved throughout the sessions on grief. But above all, to allow them to express their experiences in a climate of listening, respect and non-judgment.

Line Bilodeau

I have been a counsellor and facilitator at LumiVie since 2012.  My deepest motivation since the very beginning is to offer a presence and a listening quality for whoever feels the need.  I value the acceptance of differences and the respect of each person’s rhythm, while respecting their freedom.

Living a bereavement is never easy. It is with all my heart and my sensitivity that I provide support to people in mourning during these difficult moments.

Louise Lavigne

Thérapeute en relation d’aide (TRAMD )

As a counsellor, I offer gentle, respectful and empathetic listening. Each bereavement experience is precious and I feel blessed to support the bereaved towards a hope that is unique for each person.

Pascal Petit

Thérapeute en relation d’aide (TRAMD )

As a counsellor, I am committed to offering a unique, precious and respectful listening to the bereaved. Each bereavement is unique and it is a great honour for me to be at LumiVie to support them in their grieving process.

Carole Singher

In bereavement, the need for empathetic, respectful and non-judgmental listening of each bereaved person must be welcomed with openness and gentleness. As a counsellor, this is what I have been trying to offer with affection and humility for over ten years. Supporting a person in mourning is a real honor that allows me to learn and grow as a human being.
