Before joining the EFAP team, Lorraine counselled individuals, couples and families on a wide range of concerns through private practice and community agencies. She developed interest and expertise in the area of cross-cultural and diversity issues through her work with Surrey Delta Immigrant Services Society where she worked in co-therapy teams providing language and culture-appropriate service to over eight language groups and facilitated psychotherapy groups related to racial-cultural identity and cultural dislocation issues. Lorraine also worked as an educator and trainer in the area of cross-cultural and diversity issues. She co-developed the Certificate in Cross-cultural Counselling Skills for the UBC Women's Resources Centre, developed the cross-cultural counseling course at Vancouver Community College Continuing Studies and instructed in both these programs and on a contract basis for other educational institutions for many years. During this period she also worked as a consultant and trainer in cross-cultural and diversity issues for various agencies and organizations as they strove to become more culturally relevant and aware. Currently, Lorraine focuses her energy on her work with EFAP and her private practice.
