I started my own firm, Integral Accounting, in Feb 2016 and have enjoyed every minute since. I love using technology to turn the most challenging aspects of an organization into a smooth running dream. Whether you work solo, with a group of volunteers, or have employees to manage, I’m sure you didn’t plan on spending your evenings looking after bookkeeping or tax returns. If you’d like to build a team of people who can support your endeavours, you’ve come to the right place.
You’re not alone. I can help! If you represent a small or medium business, small local government, strata, non-profit, or charity, I’d love to hear how I can help you with your challenges. If you’re looking for support, I’ll be part of your team.

Hi, I’m Christina Vinters! I’m the Founder of Modern Separations, a Chartered Mediator, “ex” Divorce Lawyer (Non-Practicing Member of the Bar), Author of Pathways to Amicable Divorce and the DIY Divorce Manual, Peacemaking Business Consultant, and Podcaster.
My mission is to inspire and facilitate healthy family transitions.
Through my years of work as a Divorce Lawyer and Family Law Mediator, I have extensive experience helping separating couples with most types of family situations, both preventing problems and resolving disagreements.
I have had the privilege of serving clients who required separation assistance structuring the division of net worth in the tens of millions of dollars as well as clients for whom the sole focus was coordinating the healthy co-parenting of their children.
I have seen the financial and emotional damage that litigation can cause families and it was for this reason that I dedicated myself to out-of-court resolution. I believe that people deserve a way to peacefully and efficiently handle separation and divorce so that they can continue their lives in a functional way.
To that end, I help people resolve a wide range of family transitions, including cohabitation, separation and divorce, without court intervention, I spread awareness about out-of-court options through my writing, and I help other like-minded professionals develop a satisfying and sustainable divorce practice.
The routine details for your due diligence:
B.A., University of Toronto.
J.D. (law degree), University of Victoria.
Family Law Mediator, Law Society of British Columbia.
Chartered Mediator, ADR Institute of Canada.
Alright, now that you can check off those basic competency requirements, let’s talk about who I am as a person.
I’ve been told that I have an amazingly calm presence even in the worst of emotional storms.
I listen well for both what is said and what is meant.
I believe that clear and prompt communication is one of the keys to getting anything done.
I get a huge sense of satisfaction out of helping people solve the problems they had thought were intractable before we got started.

I was 30 lbs overweight, with multiple autoimmune diseases and absolutely no energy and no purpose. I could only walk the dog for 10 minutes before having to lie down for 2 hours. Managing my energy was like a military operation. After being referred to a specialist (endocrinologist) and 6 months of doing every possible test he said to me, “You are 1 of the 4 people in the world that I don’t know what is wrong with, and there is nothing more I can do for you.” Out of desperation I found EFT (which stands for Emotional Freedom Technique) or more it’s more common name “Tapping” and Matrix Reimprinting.
I am now 30lbs lighter, getting healthier every day and feeling on fire. I have discovered the art of crap (limiting beliefs) detection and transformation, which started with unearthing my own that I didn’t even know was there (hint: subconscious –sub meaning below awareness).
I now teach courageous people who want to transform their lives how to “Tap Their Crap”, to reprogram their subconscious mind and start living a life they love!
