Mike Fidler is a clinical social worker with more than 30 years’ experience helping couples repair relationship and deepen their love. In his undergraduate, he was well trained in emotionally focused client centered interviewing and was also drawn to systems theory focusing on interactional interventions. In his graduate year, he was trained by some of the best in structural and strategic family therapy. As it turned out my root therapeutic training was in conflict at multiple levels.
During the past eight years, the Gottman Method, with its attention to emotional proximity, robust assessment format and impactful interventions has catapulted him into greater confidence, greater ease dealing with complex relationships and greater felt sense of competence. In addition to being a Certified Gottman Therapist, he is also active in presenting the Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 workshops, the Art & Science of Love Couples Workshops and Marriage Preparation.
In Ontario, Fidler has a full time clinical practice with eight clinical associates and three office locations. He consults as needed, similar to his role as a child abuse specialist earlier in his career. He is delighted to have an opportunity to serve as a consultant to clinicians pursuing certification.
