Jessica Azzopardi (she/her) is a Registered Psychotherapist (qualifying) and Yorkville University Graduate student, with an Undergraduate degree in Gerontology and Health Studies from McMaster University. Jessica is excited to be joining the Milton Psychotherapy Centre team and will be focusing her internship on supporting the needs of individuals, teens (7+), and couples who are struggling with anxiety, relationship challenges, assertiveness, healthy coping, grief, and self-esteem, and life transitions. Jessica is also skilled at supporting the needs of the senior population (65+).
Jessica believes that clients can learn to be the best version of themselves when they begin to take healthy risks and begin examining their thoughts, emotions and behavioural patterns. Her clients may be struggling with social anxiety, overthinking, not saying what they truly feel, settling for less than they deserve, low mood, or self-doubt. Jessica is committed to helping her clients achieve their goals, take control of their lives, and improve their communication skills by using effective treatment approaches that include traditional talk therapy, as well as creative arts-based interventions. Jessica’s internship will be supported by our Lead Therapist, and trauma specialist, Jana Venditti.
When she is not working with her clients, Jessica enjoys indulging in classic Jane Austen novels, experimenting with new recipes, and spending time with her family. Jessica’s warm, welcoming and gentle personality is a welcome addition to our team.
