Jennifer is experienced in assessing and treating most acute and chronic mental health conditions. She has a keen interest in therapeutically treating individuals with trauma backgrounds, dissociation, post-natal depression, panic and anxiety, re-occurring life stressors and other general mental health difficulties. Prior to becoming a psychologist, Jennifer worked in a range of fields including horticulture, agriculture and tertiary education. She is a grounded, warm and caring professional who works with clients at their own pace but gently encourages clients to face their difficulties to overcome obstacles to change and growth.
Jennifer’s psychology training included working within community mental health, drug and alcohol treatment (inpatient and outpatient), and child behaviour programs. In private practice she sees children, adolescents and adults for a range of difficulties and stressors. Jennifer’s approach as a clinician is underpinned by Schema Therapy, Attachment theory and Ego-State Therapy. Other core therapies used include Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), the Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) for complex trauma, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) skills training.
Jennifer treats self- and GP-referred individuals, medicolegal clients (workers compensation, motor vehicle accident, criminal injuries compensation), and government supported referrals (DVA, Dept of Communities).
