Robin Huppmann   Robin has always been interested in the human capacity for change. When he first saw one of Diana Fosha's videos, he immediately connected to the relational and transformative aspect of AEDP. For the last five years, Robin has been a part of the AEDP Steering Committee in promoting workshops and communicating with AEDP members.  In 2013, he started his private practice at Core Counselling, which services the Fraser Valley. Last year, Robin was asked to develop a school program that works with students and their mental health concerns. Through this experience, Robin has developed a passion in working with teenagers and young adults. The program uses AEDP principles to process painful experiences with students, while directing them towards transformative experiences with both adults and peers. Currently, his primary goals is to create a community of support that engages, parents, educators, and outside agencies in an environment of care that can address a variety of issues such as self-harm, panic attacks, body image issues, and attachment wounds. In part, Robin believes that young adults face immense challenges in their identity development as a fast paced digitized society hinders the development of secure attachment based relationships that often are needed to navigate disappointment, loss, and crises.  In his spare time he enjoys time on his farm, surrounded by friends and animals. Though, not necessarily all of them together in one room. He is also in the process of writing a book about his experiences in developing a therapeutic program for teenagers.

Deborah Kors   I am a registered psychologist and have been in private practice in Vancouver since 2002. My initial discovery of AEDP was in February 2012, when I attended a two day workshop presented by Diana Fosha and Ben Lipton. After years of training in many different therapeutic orientations, I felt like I had finally found a "therapeutic home," and I was also struck by the tremendous warmth and support within the AEDP community.  In my work as an AEDP therapist, I have been deeply moved in witnessing the huge risks clients will take on behalf of themselves and in observing the powerful self- and relational transformations that can occur when clients are met with a "true other." I also feel huge gratitude for getting to be a "true other" for clients in this deeply healing process.  Currently, I am a level III AEDP therapist, having completed Immersion, Essential Skills 1, two years of core training, and will complete Essential Skills 2 in New York City in March 2018. Over the last number of years, I have also been pursuing ongoing individual supervision and group supervision.  I feel honoured and excited to be part of the AEDP Cascadia steering committee and to experience the growth of our local AEDP community.
