Jessie is a Generally Registered Psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. With a background in not-for-profit organisations, NDIS and the Employment Service Sector, Jessie has experience working with a breadth of populations and client presentations. Most recently, Jessie has worked managing teams of health professionals across a multidisciplinary framework, where she codeveloped and facilitated training in suicide and homicide risk assessment and prevention, and psychometric testing including cognitive, adaptive functioning, personality and memory assessments. 

 

Jessie has experience on the Board of Directors for a local NFP organisation that supports at-risk youth in the local community. In her clinical work, Jessie has particular interest in trauma, personality and affective disorders, and the ex-offender population. Jessie also has experience in the LGBTQI demographic and welcomes clients who require support in this field. Jessie supports a holistic approach to mental health and well-being, and recognises the value of psychosocial considerations, such as employment and housing stability, in improving the prognosis of mental health concerns. Of particular note is Jessie’s experience in return to work interventions. This includes management of risk and mental health symptoms to mitigate barriers to employment, such as: recidivism, medical concerns, personality factors and substance use. Jessie utilises a CBT framework, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) and supportive counselling throughout her work to support clients in achieving their therapeutic goals.
