I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Certified Adolescent Life Coach. As an adolescent therapist I have been trained in a variety of areas, including mental health counseling, developmental psychology and social work. I have worked with adolescent and teenage clients at home and in school setting, helping them resolving mental health and behavioral issues like depression, bullying, self esteem issues, ADHD, anger, academic performance and parent/child conflict. I look forward to working with you as the parent and your adolescent/teenage to help resolve emotional, behavioral and mental health and relationship issues. As a therapist, I take a behavioral approach to emotional problems with children and adolescents. My focus is on helping my patients to develop ways to use their own strengths to cope with issues, and they counsel entire families when necessary. Together we will work on your treatment plan which will include your goals, objectives and interventions. Your treatment plan will be tailored to meet your individual and specific needs.
My counseling style is empathetic and interactive and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is my primary approach that I have used in working with individuals, groups, and families.
I look forward to working with you.

It’s been an absolute pleasure talking through my issues with Hugues. What a lovely guy! Thank you so much. Would recommend to anyone seeking useful, friendly advice and a kind, listening ear.
Hugues' patience is next level. Right from the start, he sensed that in order for me to open up, I needed to build trust with him – and he walked alongside me and earned my trust, in my time.
His warmth, honesty and insights have truly allowed me to feel safe and grow in the space that he has facilitated. Even though some of the topics have not been easy for me to uncover, I have never felt unsafe or uncomfortable talking about these with Hugues. Our rapport is strong, and I can only thank him for being so supportive – in many senses of that word.
Hughes is an unbelievable councilor who truly helps me and I’m sure many others organize their thoughts. He talks to you like a friends and keeps it simple. No over the top explanation. 10/10
He really listen to me, and I’m able to really talk about myself , my fears with no fear.
Hes a really great and down to earth guy, always helps me to see the other possibilties out there. 10 out of 10 would recommand
Very happy with the initial connection our counselor had with our son.
Couldn't have asked for a better :)
So far, I have had a great experience with Hugues Jean. I am in the process of a transition and he has been so supportive and reliable during an otherwise unstable time. I appreciate his services and would recommend to everyone.
Dr. Jean has been a great support system and challenges me to work toward my goals and grow. I would highly recommend him!
He is very respectful of the diverse background I came from and understand how to handle sensitive situations with care
Was all great
I have been taking my sessions with Hugues and I think he is just brilliant. I was skeptic about counselling but he made me change my mind, first session he said a few things that I never realised but it was very true
He really helped me dive into my troubled past, and bring out meaningful lessons from it. Session with him have helped me channel my energy into bettering myself, and being okay with making mistakes. He is always ready to talk through whatever I say, even if I just ramble on.
Hugues has been the best therapist I have ever worked with (and I’ve seen a few). He listens, is supportive, doesn’t judge, but—and here’s what I feel is the most important part—not only challenges you to get to the bottom of your own issues, but actually gives great ideas and advice instead of just sitting there and saying “tell me how you feel” or “hmmm, I see.”
We have a real dialogue which allows me to work through some challenges I’ve been dealing with my entire life that I never even knew the real root of until Hugues helped me realize it. I have him to thank for helping my self esteem, helping me realize my self worth, helping to put back the pieces again after some severe trauma, and finally start to love myself again.
I know I still have a lot of work to do but I finally feel like I can do it with Hugues in my corner. I’m crying as I write this (and I know he will laugh at that because I cry when a leaf blows in the wind) but he really has changed my life and I can’t thank him enough. I don’t know what I would do without him.
Hugues, thank you thank you thank you for being not only my therapist but my friend, my confidant, the dad I sometimes wished I had, my punching bag, and everything in between.
Thank you for helping me see connections in my life that contribute to damaging patterns I didn’t know existed.
Thank you for helping me understand my own self worth.
Thank you for showing me that I do deserve good things to happen to me in this life.
Thank you for being wonderful at your job. Thanks for being you.
Hugues has been god sent during my time of emotional struggle! There are a number of things that I am working through. Although the issues are dynamic, they were all interrelated. With care and patience, Hugues was able to string them together for me at a pace that works for me. The tools I learned with him are instrumental to my healing, and I look forward to continue using them in the future.
Very grateful for the support and expertise being provided to address multiple interconnected issues accrued over a very long time.
We’ve had a few sessions but each time we are relieved from the phone I do feel lighter mentally. Mr. Marcelin is very respectful and supportive.
He was very professional, punctual and caring. He showed empathy, and during the sessions he emphasized the main points to work on. He listened actively and brought the discussion in a positive way without invalidating one's opinion.
He’s great! Very supportive and listens very well!
Working with Hugues has been a great experience. He made me feel comfortable from the very beginning. He's an attentive listener and he always seems to ask the right questions. I feel supported and encouraged and that has helped me teach my goals.
Hugues has been a very encouraging and understanding therapist. I'm thankful to have had him on my journey for the past few months. He's been helpful!
I’ve only met with Hugues on two occasions so far but he has been phenomenal. He just understands and he’s great at challenging me. So far, so good!
Mr. Marcelin is great. He gets to the point of your issues and helps you solve your problems.
Hugues is a great counsellor. He is patient and non-judgmental and really helps you to locate the source of your problems whilst offering helpful and practical affirmations and exercises.
Hugues is very open and easy to talk to! It's been very helpful to talk to him and follow his advice, I highly recommend him!
Hugues has been wonderful to work with. He is attentive and always strives to make me the best I can be. Highly recommend.
Tonight will be my 3rd session with Hugues. Our sessions keep varying as my separation/marriage is desolving and so our approaches keep changing from week to week as I had hoped things may change but I was foolish to believe that I could change her mind after 2.5-3.5 years
Hugues is helping me work towards various things to work through this most traumatic emotional time. I look forward to our sessions and appreciate the regular communications that we can reach out and get feedback.
He’s a great listener. And he fully understands my needs, and guides me through to my goals.
