Goretti Faria MSW, RCSW, CCC

Goretti Faria, MSW, RCSW, CCC is a Registered Clinical Social Worker in private practice in Fort Langley, BC. She completed her Master of Social Work degree from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. Goretti has over 30 years of experience in community mental health settings and in private practice. Her clinical foundation is in psychodynamic psychotherapy and family systems therapy, with training in EMDR, Internal Family Systems, and Solution-Focused therapy. In 2014 she found her therapeutic home in AEDP. She has assisted and held the Lead Assistant role for many ES1 and ES2 courses across the globe. Goretti is deeply grateful for the rich learning and mentoring she’s received from her supervisors including Ron Frederick, SueAnne Piliero, Karen Kranz, Jenn Edlin, and Jerry Lamagna. She has been an active member of AEDP Vancouver, a group committed to the growth of AEDP in Vancouver and surrounding area.

As is true for many who have studied this approach, Goretti has experienced the personal and professional transformative power of the model. She approaches supervision as a process, much like AEDP therapy, where authenticity and personal agency are unearthed. Her focus is on co-creating a safe and secure collaborative experience where the supervisee can develop their unique therapeutic talents while together striving for healing and transformation for the client. Goretti views the relationship between client, therapist, and supervisor as an expression of a shared humanity as each individual in the process and practice of AEDP is afforded the opportunity to grow in pursuit of their best professional and individual selves.
