Welcome, I'm Jessica. Ever since I can remember, I have had a deep passion for helping others understand their innermost thoughts and emotions to help them express themselves and feel seen. A lot of this passion stemmed from my own experience with battling a lifelong chronic illness, which lead me to develop a deep knowledge and appreciation into the power of therapy and moving toward inner healing. Using my experience and knowledge, I adapt my therapeutic approach to the individual needs of my clients. I use a person centered approach that encompasses elements that stem from self-compassion, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Adlerian, as well as narrative and mindfulness based techniques.
I completed an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at Carleton University and later received my Masters degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Ottawa. I am both a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) and I am currently a Registered Psychotherapist License# 009695 with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
Currently I am working with clients in private practice over the phone and virtually using video calling.
Outside of therapy you can find me running around after my mischievous little Shih Tzu, watching all the movies, diving into Netflix, singing, listening to music, or snuggled up with a good book and cozy blanket. I'd love to get to know you.
My private practice is supervised by:
Susan Prosser R.N., B.SC.N., M.A., R.P. #002438
