OUR TEAM

Caitlin Williams

We’ve all been there…feeling overwhelmed by a conflict in our lives and not knowing what we can do to move forward.  Just as our society is now talking more about psychological health and the need for us all to be able to ask for help, the same goes for conflict.  I believe that fine-tuning how we handle conflict resolution in our lives has the potential to create broad and positive changes within ourselves, our families and our society.  I approach each client with warmth, empathy and skill and use a variety of evidence-based, solution-focused strategies to help each person along the way. 

I have worked in non-profit, private practice and educational settings and bring to the table 15 years of experience and specific training in conflict resolution, alternative dispute resolution, counselling, coaching and mediation.  I specialize in work with complex family and group interventions, high levels of conflict, group facilitation, workplace conflict resolution and mediation.  I also have significant experience working within a variety of cross-cultural contexts with immigrant and refugee family populations, supporting their emotional/mental health, family and educational successes in Canada. 

I have a Masters Degree in Counselling and a Certificate in Conflict Resolution with a specialization in Family Mediation.  I am also member in good standing with the Alternative Dispute Resolution Institute of British Columbia.

As a Registered Social Worker I work with individuals and families experiencing conflict in a variety of areas and  have the opportunity to experience first hand, the positive impact that support, education and conversation can have.   I have worked with clients for the last 8 years in a variety of settings including hospitals, non-profit organizations, mental health services, private practice and educational settings. 

I am passionate about working with individuals to help them achieve personal and professional happiness and contentment through addressing the conflicts, barriers and challenges in their lives.  I do this by examining the bio-psycho-social-spiritual-cultural factors affecting their lives in order to gain a holistic understanding of each person. 

The therapeutic frameworks I am trained to utilize are Narrative (i.e. talk) therapy, strengths-based solution-focused therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Family Systems Theory.  I am fluent in English and Hindi, and I have experience working within a variety of cultural and religious contexts.
