Welcome to the Vancouver Couple & Family Institute

Every day we help individuals, couples, and families reach their personal goals and build strong bonds in their most important relationships.

Do you experience conflict or lack of closeness in your relationship? Maybe your arguments go on and on without getting resolved, leaving you feeling lonely and further apart.

Is your child experiencing problems at home or at school? Are you struggling to understand what is troubling your teenager?

Do you get caught in self-defeating patterns that leave you feeling discouraged? Are you feeling anxious or depressed?

Whether you come on your own, with your partner, or as part of a family, we can provide relief. Our counsellors and psychologists can help you reconnect with your loved ones.  We will help you discover what is most important to you.  With a supportive approach, we will help you explore feelings about yourself, your family, and your work.  You will be encouraged to move beyond what’s blocking you and take the steps required to create lasting changes.  We invite you to contact us now and start focusing your energy on improving the quality of your life.
