Jenny is a child and adolescent psychologist (Supervised Practice) who holds a PhD in Clinical Psychology from The University of Guelph and an MA in Counselling Psychology from The University of Western Ontario. She is a warm, compassionate, and intuitive therapist who specializes in working with adolescents and young adults. With over nine years of experience providing therapy to young people in community, educational, and private practice settings, she has a strong understanding of the experiences that occur during the early-late adolescent years.
Jenny’s approach is rooted in developmental considerations and attachment, and her work is trauma informed. She recognizes the role of systemic and socio-cultural factors in mental health, and her approach is inclusive, honouring and affirming all expressions of self and identity. Jenny prioritizes the therapeutic relationship in her practice, and she recognizes how important it is for her clients to trust and feel connected to her. Jenny takes a flexible, integrative approach to therapy and draws from various modalities to support her clients in the most effective and meaningful way based on their unique needs and life circumstances. She can support young people struggling with anxiety and mood difficulties, emotion dysregulation, self-worth/self-criticism, life transitions, and relational challenges, as well as those seeking increased emotional exploration and expression, self-compassion, and acceptance. Generally, she aims to help her clients gain a better understanding of themselves and their emotions, cope with challenges that arise, and integrate activities into their lives that build meaning and contentment.
Jenny’s clinical interests include the emotional and mental health and wellbeing of young people, recovery from non-suicidal self-injury, and survivors of trauma and maltreatment. She has experience with Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and emotion focused, compassion focused, and mindfulness and acceptance-based approaches to care. Jenny’s work is clinically supervised by Dr. Julia Hussman.
