Who we are 

Cogni XR Health was built by Cognicorp+ Therapy Inc. A startup with the mission to become the benchmark for the effectiveness and delivery of specialized telehealth solutions. 


 We provide to: 

  • Private and public organizations with EAPs

  • Educational institutions

  • Mental health providers with a private practice that serves employees, students, and other individuals who struggle with PTSD, anxiety, phobia and other related cognitive or behavioral health challenges

We offer a safe and affordable human-centered platform that's amplified by immersive technologies like XR (VR, AR, assisted by AI).


We value building a wellness community in which we democratize mental health services through destigmatization, dialogue, privacy and data protection with effective emerging technology tools that meet compliance standards.


Our story 

After working for more than 15 years in partnership with the Ministry of Health and Social Services of Quebec as well as Public establishments both in Quebec and abroad, Emmanuella Michel  [pictured in the middle] is the Founder and CEO of Cognicorp + Therapy Inc., and a Ph.D. candidate in educational technology. Emmanuella has devoted most of her career to serving youth, families and employees through readaptation and EAP programs. Emmanuella also became a Facebook Oculus Launchpad Fellow where she developed the Alpha version of Cogni XR.


Emmanuella and Sabrina met at CEFRIO as they worked together on several  "living labs" research projects. Sabrina Boutin [pictured on the right], is a CEO, nurse, health innovator as well as an education and data enthusiast. Murad Ait, [pictured on the left], became a good friend to the two and now boasts a position as the chief of Product Development. Murad initially met Sabrina and Emmanuella during his time at Champlain college, while with his intensive IT experience was obtaining the expertise to become a prolific software developer and VR-AR specialist.


The three are a part of ShEEO venture, Acet Banque Nationale and are a part of Cohort 9 of the L'Esplanade Acceleration program.
