Katherine Tomkinson, BASc, MSc, RP, RMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Guelph
I have been a therapist and clinical supervisor in family service agencies and private practice for over twenty years, most recently as Manager and Clinical Supervisor in the University of Guelph's Couple and Family Therapy training program. These experiences have provided me with the skills necessary to help people dealing with a diverse range of life's challenges. I have worked successfully with individuals, couples and families struggling with physical and mental illnesses, addictions, trauma, grief and loss, affairs, separation and divorce as well as other family stresses. I am a Clinical Fellow and Approved Supervisor with the AAMFT, and the OAMFT.
While I am skilled in many models of therapy including Cognitive-Behavioural, Family, Emotionally-focused and solution oriented therapies I am most influenced by Narrative Therapy. I have seen amazing change in people when they begin to challenge the negative, unhelpful stories about themselves that they have been invited into.
Narrative Therapy is a strength-based, collaborative approach to dealing with problems, to improving one's outlook on life or helping you to explore and connect with the values, hopes and dreams that are precious to you so that you might better live them out.
