Jennifer Ewen, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist

Hi, I’m Jennifer Ewen. I am passionate about creating healthy, secure relationships in all areas of your life— your partner, your family, your workplace, and yourself.  Since 2008 I’ve been doing just that.  

I have a Master’s degree in Social Work. (That’s the ‘MSW’ after my name.) I am also a Registered Social Worker in Ontario. Becoming a counsellor was a mid-life transition for me.  I love my job!  It is my great privilege to accompany clients on their journey to wholeness and happiness.

I specialize in helping couples reconnect with the love that first brought them together. Together we work to understand the negative patterns that have kept them trapped and work as a team to develop skills for authentic connection. Sex therapy is a natural extension of my work with couples and is integrated into all my couple therapy.

In addition to my work with couples, I enjoy working with individuals for issues such as anxiety, grief, and stress/burnout.

Education

Beyond my graduate degree, I am committed to ongoing professional development and training. I have travelled across North America to learn from some of the masters of psychotherapy. I am pleased to use these leading-edge ideas and strategies for my clients here in central Ontario. Here is a sample of my training activities:

  • Sex Therapy Intensive (University of Guelph)
  • Esther Perel: Clinical Approaches to Infidelity (Toronto)
  • Dr. Susan Johnson: Emotionally Focused Therapy (Toronto)
  • Dr. William Doherty: Discernment Counselling (Minneapolis, MN)
  • Michele Weiner-Davis: Divorce Busting (Boulder, CO)
  • Dr. Barry McCarthy: Sexuality Across the Lifespan (Toronto)
  • Dr. John Gottman: Gottman Method of Couple Therapy (distance)

Professional Affiliations

Registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. RSW #815568.

I am an Associate Member of the Board of Examiners in Sex Therapy and Counselling in Ontario (BESTCO).

A personal note…

In addition to regular professional training in the latest couple interventions, I have had the opportunity to test out these theories in the real-life crucible of my own marriage. I have been married to my wonderful husband for almost 30 years, and together we have raised two now-adult children. We have lived through many of the challenges that are faced by couples in my practice: the transition to parenthood, financial challenges, extended family issues, work/life balance and more. This is not to say my marriage is a model for others to follow. We are far from perfect! Every couple needs to create their version of a satisfying relationship. It would be my honour and my privilege to guide you in this creation.
