Mental Health Concerns

Jessica views many mental health concerns as symptoms of what an individual may be experiencing, not as an absolute part of them. Engaging in addictive, obsessive, depressed, or anxious behaviours protect an individual from feeling unsafe and uncomfortable. Many times, these protective roles formed during early childhood in response to caregiver reactions. They can continue to carry these roles and internalized beliefs into adulthood, disrupting their daily functioning and negatively impacting their relationships, work, parenting, and view of themselves. Turning our attention inwards and learning about the protective roles of these behaviours can begin to foster a sense of compassion for oneself, eliminating the judgement and shame that one may have been carrying for many years. For couples therapy, a deeper understanding about oneself in this way allows them to show up as the type of partner they want to be.

Counselling Approaches

Jessica has completed Levels 1 and 2 Gottman Method for couples counselling. This approach aims to improve closeness, friendship, effective communication skills, and conflict management, while building a life of shared meaning together. Therapy using Internal Family Systems (IFS) views an individual as multifaceted, comprised of various parts that operate within a system. Techniques from an IFS perspective involve learning about the different parts that protect an individual from wounds and painful emotions, such as sadness or shame. Therapy aims to integrate conflicting parts within the system, ultimately healing internal wounds, and highlighting the internal strengths of the individual. Approaching therapy through a trauma informed lens provides a framework about how the impact of trauma shapes the biochemical, psychological, and social factors that produce anxiety, anger, shame and traumatic stress. Trauma therapy utilizes experiential, cognitive and behavioural techniques that offer freedom from painful and intrusive memories and provide individuals with the experience of a new sense of safety.
