Jordana is a Clinical Psychologist who works with young people and adults experiencing anxiety and mood issues, behavioural and social difficulties, and difficulties related to stressful or traumatic life experiences. She has particular interest and experience supporting people who struggle to regulate their emotions, and who might also engage in problematic or self-injurious behaviours. She has practiced in private inpatient and outpatient settings (providing individual and group therapy), and public mental health, in addition to private practice.
Jordana draws on a number of therapeutic approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and has experience in offering trauma-focused interventions such as prolonged exposure and imagery rescripting. She is trained to deliver comprehensive DBT via Behavior Tech, Marsha Linehan’s training organisation, and is also EMDR trained. Jordana practices with warmth, empathy and authenticity, and works to develop respectful and collaborative therapeutic relationships. In addition to her role at Melbourne Children’s Psychology Clinic, Jordana also works in an outpatient DBT program at one of Melbourne’s private psychiatric hospitals.
