Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 7:45 to 5 pm.
My style is direct, reality-focused, and comprehensive in addressing the personal and interpersonal facets of your life which help or hinder your success in relationships and living. The therapy that I practice is grounded in sound theory and research about individuals, couples, families and family businesses. I work to make my input stimulating and definitely not "cookie cutter" advice; it is tailor-made to fit your world, with immediate application and value.
I am committed to Gottman method Couples Therapy because it delivers tested and sustainable benefits to couples. As well, I have practiced Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (www.eft.ca), Cognitive Therapy, and Structural Family Therapy for over 2 decades.
I was pleased to be the first Canadian to be certified in Gottman Method Couples Therapy. I am also a Certified Gottman Couples Workshop Leader and the first Canadian Presenter of the two day professional workshop, "Marital Therapy: A Research Based Approach".
I have provided therapy to individuals, couples, and families since 1982; and consultation and training to groups and organizations since 1990, through my company Relationship Enterprise (a division of West Vancouver Therapy & Psychological Services). My masters level training in counseling psychology specialized in systemic theory & practice. I also specialize in providing executive coaching to leaders in both the corporate & non-profit sectors and to professionals. With a special interest in assisting family businesses, I am a past member of the Professional Advisory Committee of UBC's Business Families Centre. Along with my spouse, Dr. Bonnie Gibbon, we have developed a specialized approach for assisting family businesses - Family Enterprise Therapy.
