Message from the Association President

Welcome to the Manitoba Association for Marriage and Family Therapy website. My name is Vicki Enns, and I have the honour of being the President of the Association for the years 2016 and 2017.

My other professional hats include Instructing and Supervising at the University of Winnipeg in the Marriage and Family Therapy Masters Program, Clinical Director and Trainer with Crisis and Trauma Resource Institute and I run a private practice, Assiniboine Family Therapy.  I have been involved on the MAMFT Board for the past 2 years as President Elect and am honoured to continue to serve as President.

During my term as President I hope to build a growing, strong and engaged Association and continue to raise the profile of MFT’s in the province by creating a brand that will be both recognizable and reputable.  This is in support of regulation and third party payment, which is dependent on the recognition of Marriage and Family Therapists as experts in healing and strengthening couple and family relationships.

Our Board continues to work on becoming more relevant to both family therapists and other mental health professionals in the hopes of expanding our circle.

I am always open to questions or feedback. Feel free to contact me at mamftpresident@gmail.com

Sincerely,

Vicki Enns
