Dr. Jessica Ginting, R.Psych.


Dr. Jessica Ginting is a Registered Psychologist (CPBC #2175) who primarily uses Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to help adults with depression, chronic pain,  anxiety (e.g., panic disorder, generalized anxiety, social anxiety), and PTSD associated with motor vehicle accidents. She also helps people with difficulties coping with other stressors (e.g., work) by providing assertive communication skills training, supporting clients with problem solving and processing meaning of life events. She takes a collaborative client-centred approach to help people tap into their resiliency and strengths. Dr. Ginting believes that it is important to provide her clients with a framework and education to understand and demystify their psychological and emotional experiences.

Dr. Ginting completed her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario where her research focused on the role of social support in determining outcomes for individuals with urogenital chronic pelvic pain syndromes. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at The Ottawa Hospital in the First Episode Psychosis Program (On Track) where she co-facilitated a CBT group for psychosis and performed psychodiagnostic assessments. She also co-facilitated a long-term interpersonal therapy group and was part of an interdisciplinary team in the Respiratory Rehabilitation Service. Prior to relocating to the Lower Mainland, Dr. Ginting worked in private practice in Ottawa, Ontario helping people with various issues following motor vehicle accidents (e.g., pain, anxiety, depression).

Outside of work, Dr. Ginting enjoys playing ultimate, snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, and generally spending time with friends and family.
