About Kim Ewing My Training Hi, my name is Kim Ewing. I am a Registered Individual, Couple & Family Therapist. I have been in practice since 1995 and I work with adults, adolescents and children in the context of their families. I work with clients as individuals, couples, families and groups. I provide counseling and therapy for all emotional concerns, relationship issues and I specialize in the area of eating disorders.

My graduate training consist of two Master level degrees. The first is a Masters Degree in Psychology from Wilfrid Laurier University and the second is a specialized Masters Degree in Individual, Couple & Family Therapy from the University of Guelph (Department of Family Studies). The second degree provided specialized training for working with the complex dynamics of relationship and individual issues. This second degree allows me to obtain and use the official title of Registered Marriage and Family Therapist (RMFT #70444 Canadian Registry).

My professional organizations are the Canadian and BC Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, (CAMFT), (BCAMFT) and the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). The Registry of Marriage and Family Therapy in Canada is associated with the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, an international professional association established in 1942.

I am a Clinical Fellow in these organizations. Please note that for clarity, I use the title “Registered Individual, Couple & Family Therapist” rather than “Registered Marriage & Family Therapist”, as I do provide individual therapy and I do see couples in all relationship arrangements and of all sexual orientations.


 
My Career History

Since 1995, it has been my privilege to provide counseling and therapy to individual, couples, families and groups in a variety of settings. I have worked in private practice, community agencies, university settings and both inpatient and outpatient psychiatry for adults and adolescents.

From 1995 to 2005, I practiced in Ontario, Canada. In 2001, I was given the opportunity to be a part of the development of several Outpatient Eating Disorder Programs in Southern Ontario. I was also given the lead in setting up an Eating Disorder Program at Cambridge Memorial Hospital and was their primary clinician. During this time, I was fortunate to receive training and consultation from specialists with the Eating Disorder Programs at Toronto General Hospital, the Hospital for Sick Children and other programs through out Southern Ontario.

In 2005, I relocated to the beautiful Okanagan to open a private practice and enjoy all that British Columbia offers. I wanted to bring my training and experience to a smaller community that has fewer mental health resources and services for eating disorders. As well, I wanted to provide services for those with disordered eating, as this group is not eligible for treatment at the eating disorder programs. Disordered eating is serious and it can have a negative impact on health, emotions and relationships. As well, early intervention can prevent it from progressing to a full eating disorder.
