About Marilyn Sundeen

At mid-life I experienced a life crisis that brought me to my knees. I needed to make some changes and to reconsider the meaning of my life. That time of transition eventually led to my change of career and my decision to become a therapist.

I went back to school and earned my Masters in Counselling in 2011. In addition to offering a private practice service, I am engaged by several local agencies, providing therapy for those suffering with grief and loss and assisting survivors of historical physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

I continue to expand and refine my professional skills, which build on traditional practices. I offer a holistic approach that includes body, mind and spirit. As well, personal growth work is an ongoing practice for me.

I am a current member in good standing with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC), since 2012.


BCACC is dedicated to enhancing mental health all across British Columbia. We're dedicated to providing the highest standard of professional counselling, consulting, assessment, testing and training services.
