Dr Giroux is a  board-certified adult psychiatrist who is currently the medical director at the Aftercare clinic (APSS Stockton) as well as the site director for resident and medical student training. She acquired her clinical experience in various settings, both as an inpatient and outpatient physician.  She has been enthusiastic about supervising students throughout her appointments. She has a particular interest in personality disorders and trauma. Her therapeutic approach is mainly eclectic and trans-culturally sensitive (she can provide services in English and also in French, her native language), with an emphasis on an existential perspective and psychoeducation. She believes in the patient’s inner strengths, creative potential and capacity to participate in recovery.
