About Andrew Blackwood

For more than 17 years, Mental Health Professional, Dr. Andrew L. Blackwood, affectionately known as “Coach Drew”, has been connecting deeply with individuals, parents, and teens to support their growth and healing through speaking, coaching and workshops on his book The Art of a Genuine Apology.

Andrew’s personal journey through anxiety and childhood divorce helps him appreciate the often-painful challenges of those he works with. Earning a Master of Divinity in Counseling (Tyndale Seminary, 2005) and a Doctorate of Ministry to Marriage and Family (Eastern University – Palmer School of Theology, 2010), prepared him to serve well as a Clinician, guest expert and media consultant on shows like 100 Huntley Street and the 700 Club Canada. His remarkable ability to engage and bring clarity to the complex challenges of healing in relationships sets him apart as a true facilitator of change.

His desire to impact relationship culture around the world is made personal everyday as he continues to learn, heal, and grow in his most prized relationships, with his wife and two daughters.
