Jessica is a registered psychologist with a special interest in trauma during developmental years, attachment theory and family systems. Her approach to therapy is collaborative, warm and relational. She works with clients experiencing a range of difficulties, including anxiety, depression, low confidence, and interpersonal struggles.
Jessica has completed advanced specialist training in New York City in integrative trauma treatment (National Institute for the Psychotherapies) and in family therapy (the Ackerman Institute for the Family). She has worked in public and community mental health settings, with a diverse range of clients, including adults, young people, families, LGBTIQ+, racially and ethnically diverse, and Aboriginal Australians.
Jessica is trained in evidence-based approaches to working with mental health conditions. Using these approaches, together with empathy and understanding Jessica aims to support people to live connected and meaningful lives, with a more cohesive sense of self and improved self-esteem. She is interested in how society’s view on race, ethnicity, socioeconomic class, gender identity, and sexual orientation, impact upon well being.
