Growing team of psychologists with declared competency in Clinical and Forensic psychology offering in-person or virtual psychological services. 


About Jessica

I am a member of the College of Psychologists of Ontario (registrant # 7260) with declared competency in Clinical and Forensic psychology. I completed my undergraduate studies in Honours Psychology at Concordia University and my Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology at Queen's University. Prior to starting my private practice, I worked as a dedicated frontline clinician and health administrator within the criminal justice system for 8 years.  As a therapist in the correctional system, I completed psychodiagnostic assessments, suicide and criminal risk assessments, crisis intervention, individual and group therapy, and clinical supervision to fellow mental health professionals. I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and have taught several psychology and criminal justice degree level courses as part-time faculty at Humber College, Sheridan College and the University of Guelph-Humber. Throughout my professional career, I have received specialized training in various modalities and assessments tools. ​

Therapeutic Approach

Being a therapist is a privilege and I am grateful for the opportunity to be by your side when life gets tough or you need extra support. I am a person-centered and integrative therapist whose main modalities are Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy with a psychodynamic flair. I also practice Cognitive Processing Therapy and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy. I have extensive experience supporting individuals who are struggling with stress, anxiety, trauma, depression, distress intolerance, relationship difficulties, emotional instability, self-harm, suicidal ideation, substance abuse, grief, or living with major mental illness. In my clinical work, I work collaboratively with clients to develop a deeper and more insightful understanding of thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and how to manage these to ensure individuals live rich meaningful lives. I help clients connect how past experiences shape their present struggles, and to develop new practical skills. I am passionate about supporting first responders and frontline health service workers because my years of correctional experience allow me to keenly understand the unique challenges essential workers face.
