She provides therapy and counseling services for the following communities on Vancouver Island: Courtenay, Comox, Campbell River, Cumberland, Nanaimo, Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Tofino, and Port Alberni, British Columbia. She grew up the inner city of Toronto and began her work there counseling and facilitating groups for women of all ages and backgrounds who were struggling with chemical dependencies and food/body image issues. After obtaining her Bachelor of Social Work at Ryerson in 1996 at the age of 25, Esther moved to British Columbia and continued her work as a therapist. In 1998, she obtained her Masters in Social Work from UBC. Her graduating research on Jewish Women and Body Image was published in the Journal of Collaborative shortly thereafter.

She is fortunate to have a fantastic marriage, loving and supportive family and very good friends. In Esther's words, "I have experienced several major life challenges and have come out the other side of a deeper, mature, and more loving person. I truly believe that I cannot help people unless I've done my own personal work and continue to on a daily basis. I am a living example that psychotherapy works and is an invaluable tool for human growth, healing and self-acceptance."
About the Book: "Dump That Chump";
is a book written as a 10-step plan to teach you, the reader, how to not end up in a bad relationship but also how to attract a positive one through your own presentation of a much more positive you!
This is a well written and easy to follow guide for all women that struggle to find that perfect match for a lifetime relationship. The information you will gain from this book will help strengthen your understanding in how very important positive self-talk is. Positive self-talk will strengthen your ability to not repeat wrong decisions in regards to relationship choices.
"DUMP THAT CHUMP" will also show you how that phrase, "settling", is not and should not be acceptable to you. You will learn that settling for someone or something eventually drowns your own ideas of what you deserve in life as far as a partner is concerned. People choose to settle because it is safer, more predictable, easier to control and a lot less challenging than actually striving for more.
The author uses this very powerful phrase to help you look at the core of your bad decisions, "What You Expect Is What You Get". If you expect nothing then you will get nothing. It is a fairly simple thought when you actually stop and think about it.
The information in this book will also teach you how to retrain your mind so that you can get to know yourself through positive self-acceptance. To know and understand who you are is a definite key in helping you to make the correct choice in relationships. Lets face it, no one wants to be stuck in a bad relationship.
