To our dear colleagues, clients and friends,

We at VCFI and VCEFT are grief stricken by the overt racism we have witnessed recently in the United States and within our own country. Listening to our BIPOC colleagues, our eyes have been opened to the covert systemic racism that is in the air we breathe. We stand together with our marginalized communities, to fight racism and discrimination based on colour, faith, gender, and sexuality. We pledge to create an environment that promotes inclusivity, dignity and respect and above all celebrates our exquisite diversity.

To the Tk’emlups te secwepemic First Nation and all nations in the region

We acknowledge the devastating confirmation of the discovery of the remains of 215 children that were recently located in a mass grave on the grounds of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School. We shed tears with the First Nation families and communities who are grieving.

We shed tears for the grief that is in the present, as well the past, for those parents and families who lived with the terrible loss and trauma of never knowing what happened to their children.

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.
