Author of Big-Hearted Parenting

Thank you for stopping by.

I'm Andrew Dutcher.

I am originally from New Brunswick and I am a Wolastoqey member of the Tobique First Nation. I currently live in Calgary, Alberta, where I am a husband, father of three kids, and I work as a child and adolescent psychiatrist with indigenous youth, and children in the child welfare system.

My mission is to keep indigenous families together, and to prevent any more indigenous children from being taken into the child welfare system in Canada. 

Make sure to visit my social media channel on TikTok, where I give parents and youth tips on maintaining mental wellness. In my spare time, I am also a real estate investor.
