All of us here at Another Road would like to take the opportunity to welcome Jessica Ricci to our therapeutic team. Jessica will be onsite at Another Road two days a week for group and individual counselling sessions. Here's a little bit about her, welcome aboard Jessica!
Registered Psychotherapist, BA, MA, RP
I find it helpful to know about my clients, so in turn I am offering some background into myself to help make an informed decision for those who wish to pursue their therapeutic journey here. I bring six years of therapy, counselling, and support granted through a wide variety of clinical environments. Beginning into this field I wanted to be involved in many different environments in order to bring a wealth of experiences to clients. Some of these experiences include hospitals, social service agencies, child mental health organizations, residential treatment facilities, provincial correctional facilities, school boards, and private practice.
As a trained mental health professional I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. Also, as a general member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists, I adhere to the rigorous standards outlined by the code of ethics and standards of practice of the OACCPP. I am also a registered member in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
I have undertaken a number of crisis deescalation courses to support clients through all stages of crisis (pre-crisis, crisis, and post-crisis), as well as pursued ASIST training in order to provide appropriate care to clients at risk of suicide.
