Karen kranz, phd

Dr. Kranz has been a psychologist in private practice in Vancouver Canada since 2000. Her areas of interest in AEDP are making the work with clients and therapists increasingly more relational and experiential. She is continually challenged and intrigued by core and pathogenic emotions and has completed the first draft of a paper about pathogenic affect with the working title of “Rock Logic & Rabbit Holes: The Phenomenology of Pathogenic State of Consciousness & its Impact on the Therapist’s State of Consciousness and Therapist-Client Intersubjectivity.”

After the Immersion course, she began supervision with Dr. Fosha. "At that time, all that interested me was becoming a better clinician, AEDP certification as a therapist and supervisor and becoming faculty were never my ambitions. However, as I deepened into both my knowledge and experience of AEDP and in the AEDP community, I realized that it was through the process of certification as a therapist, as a supervisor, and now with teaching and writing that I was becoming a better therapist."

With AEDP, Dr. Kranz says she "found a therapeutic home and a community of colleagues when I did not even know I was looking for one, or perhaps more aptly wasn’t looking for one because I did not believe such a home existed."

Dr. Kranz has assisted and taught in Immersion, Essentials Skills (ES1) and Advanced Skills (ES2) courses nationally and internationally, as well as given workshops in the US and Europe. Her most recent paper is “Making AEDP supervision relational and experiential: Cultivating receptive affective capacity in supervisee and client.”

Dale has a private practice in Vancouver, BC where he works with individuals and couples, focusing on resolution of early childhood trauma, anxiety, interpersonal violence and depression. His background includes extensive training in Emotionally Focused Couples therapy, EMDR and the clinical application of meditation and mindfulness practices to healing.


A supervisor-in-training is someone on the AEDP supervisory certification path. On this path, supervisors-in-training are permitted to supervise clinicians only under the supervision of two faculty members.  Clinicians that receive supervision by a supervisor-in-training cannot count their supervision hours towards their certification as an AEDP therapist until the supervisor-in-training has attained certification as an AEDP Certified Supervisor. There is no guarantee that the supervisor-in-training will fulfill the requirements necessary to become an AEDP Certified Supervisor.


Goretti Faria, MSW, RCSW, CCC

I am honoured to have been approved to be a AEDP Supervisor-in-Training. I am currently welcoming practitioners who want to broaden and deepen their understanding of the AEDP model and their skills in applying the model to their work.

I look forward to accompanying you in your journey as you learn how to help your clients have authentic, core affective experiences through the transformational processes. Together, through microanalysis of your taped sessions, we’ll explore interventions such as moment-to-moment tracking, recognition of somatic markers, staying experiential, identifying state-changes, and enabling cascading spirals of transformational experience, among others. Throughout this process, I provide a respectful environment supportive of your safety, needs, and growth as an AEDP therapist.

From my introduction to AEDP in 2012, and every training step along the way, I have experienced the personal and professional transformative power of the model. I have been deeply appreciative of my clients’ trust in the safety and efficacy of the collaborative process which, simultaneously, has inspired me to be brave in accompanying my clients through the co-created and mutually transformative journey. This same collaborative and transformative experience has been integral in my own supervision throughout my certification process, and now through my current training with my supervisors Dr. Ronald Frederick and Dr. SueAnne Piliero.

I am a Registered Clinical Social Worker with over 25 years experience in clinical practice. I am located in Fort Langley, BC, and can meet either in person or online (via Zoom). Please feel free to contact me at: g.faria@shaw.ca or at 778-808-1995.
