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 am a Certified Hakomi Therapist with two years of training and one year of supervision in Hakomi Body-Centered and Mindfulness-Based psychotherapy.

Work Experience

I started my private practice in 1997. Before entering private practice full-time several years ago, I worked part-time as a Senior Psychology Advisor at WorkSafeBC. 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 place. Closer to home, I enjoy many cultural events that Vancouver offers.
