Clinical Information:    
Dr. Marianne Gareau is a registered psychologist in private practice in Vancouver, BC. Dr. Gareau completed a Ph.D. in Counselling Psychology at the University of Alberta in 1996. Since that time, she has been in private practice, providing effective counselling and psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and families.

Prior to 1996, Marianne had over 25 years of working experience, first as a teacher, consultant, parent educator, and finally a regional office manager with the Alberta Department of Education. She lived in Edmonton until 2003, when she and her husband David, a registered social worker, moved to the Vancouver area. David and Marianne opened a private practice together in Richmond, BC, under the name “Richmond Relationship Counselling Services.” In 2008, as David decided it was time to reduce his working hours to devote more time to music and volunteer activities, they moved their home and office into Vancouver.

While Marianne continues to enjoy working with individuals, she has specialized in counselling couples over the past 10 years. She completed her certification as an Imago Therapist in the spring of 2009, and continues to work towards advanced certification status. In addition to her training in Imago Relationship Therapy, Marianne has studied numerous other approaches to working with individuals and couples, and is able to adapt her approach according to clients’ particular circumstances and needs.

Marianne is an avid reader and learner, and she is dedicated to keeping up with advances in the fields of psychology, attachment theory, and the new brain science. She attends conferences and trainings on a regular basis, and is constantly updating both her ways of working and her ideas about how to help people change and meet their goals.

In her work with clients, Marianne holds a strong belief that we all have within ourselves the resources and strengths required to deal with life’s many challenges. She begins by creating a safe, supportive, constructive and collaborative working relationship with clients, and helps them to find ways of connecting with and building on their own inner strengths and wisdom. Rather than assuming the role of “expert,” Marianne prefers to see herself as a guide and a facilitator of growth. She has a direct and practical style, and does her best to live up to her motto, “mature, experienced, compassionate.”
