Rock-André is a PhD student at the Université du Québec à Montréal. Having completed his schooling, he now devotes his time to writing his thesis, to counseling and training in suicide prevention, as well as to the practice of psychotherapy.
He interned and worked in health psychology at Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital. He specializes in supporting people living with cancer, those in palliative care, and relatives of a person living with a chronic illness.
His approach is humanistic (intersubjective approach and emotion-focused therapy) and his services are integrative. In particular, he incorporates tools from the cognitive-behavioural approach (acceptance and commitment therapy and mindfulness) as well as the solution-based approach to the needs of its clients.
Its services are aimed at adults, couples, adolescents, experiencing difficulties in adapting to illness or death, relationship difficulties, depressive symptoms, anxiety, eating disorder, difficulties related to self-image, grief (by suicide or not), issues surrounding self-esteem and exhaustion.

He is also one of the two designers of the My Tools https://suicide.ca/en/my-tools mobile application and is one of the authors of the Preventing Suicide among Senior Residents training that is available on the shared Continuing Education digital learning environment. Currently, he is working on the development of the training of the Ministère de la Santé et des Services Sociaux that will address psychosocial workers as well as nurses who have the professional responsibility to estimate the dangerousness of a suicidal act.
