Dr. Marilyn G Chotem, EdD, Psychologist in West Vancouver, BC


“Leave no stone unturned” is my motto in approaching relational difficulties. In working with couples, I explore how developmental relationship and attachment experiences manifest in current relationship difficulties. While there is a focus on communication and negotiation skills, there is also a focus on changing the patterned dynamics in the relationship to achieve a more mutually satisfying relationship. Much of my role is in helping partners differentiate from their mates. Differentiation allows people to see each other more objectively and compassionately. They become less reactive and more aware of personal projections that distort perceptions of their partners.
