About Dr. Schibler
I became interested in psychology pretty early in my education. I earned my Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree in Psychology at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, and my Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Clinical Psychology at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC.
I frequently take professional training and workshops to keep my skills current. I became a Certified Hakomi Therapist after completing two years of training and one year of supervision in Hakomi Body-Centered and Mindfulness-Based psychotherapy.
I started my private practice in 1997. Until recently, I worked part-time as a Psychology Advisor at WorkSafeBC, the Workers’ Compensation Board of BC. In that capacity, I advised case managers and vocational rehabilitation consultants about psychological services required by injured workers, and arranged and monitored these services. Earlier in my career, I worked part-time as a rehabilitation psychologist in two interdisciplinary chronic pain programs.
I have provided psychological services to a number of institutions including several Vancouver hospitals, a major employee assistance program, a psychological assessment firm, an adolescent treatment facility, and a mental health centre. I am a member of the College of Psychologists of British Columbia, the British Columbia Psychological Association, the Hakomi Institute of BC, and the Hakomi Institute (International).
In My Free Time
My biggest passion is travel, whether it’s a camping trip in our beautiful province, or a journey to a far-away new place. Closer to home, I enjoy many cultural and artistic events that Vancouver offers.
