Christine Dennstedt holds an MA in Counseling Psychology and did her PhD dissertation for the Taos/Tilburg program on the subject of substance misuse and disordered eating practices. Over the past 15 years the ‘older’ generation of Vancouver narrative therapists watched Christine ‘grow up’ in narrative practice and marvelled at her grace and commitment to the work. She was first introduced to narrative therapy ideas while working on her Masters degree and taking a course taught by VSNT faculty member Colin Sanders (she literally followed Colin around wherever he taught! and now – they follows each other!). Her NT history includes working as a Family Therapist at Peak House, as a Counselor at Vista (a residential program for women struggling with eating disorders), and at a youth incarceration centre. Christine currently works in a broad-spectrum private practice where she lives in Whistler, BC and teaches at Vancouver’s City University. When she is not practicing therapy she can be found traveling all over the world – playing outside on skis, bikes and surfboards!
