Meet the Therapist
Jessica is a classically trained musician, music educator and music therapist from Dublin, Ireland.
After graduating with a Bachelors in Music Education from Trinity College and the Royal Irish Academy of Music in 2016, Jessica then travelled to Nairobi, Kenya, where she spent a year working with children and young adults with intellectual disabilities and other developmental delays. Jessica was so inspired by the positive impact music appeared to have on the lives of those she worked with in Kenya that she decided to return to university to begin a Masters in Music Therapy. Following the completion of her MSc in Music Therapy at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh in 2019, Jessica returned home to Dublin to continue her professional career.
As well as running Dublin Music Therapy, Jessica has also works as part of the Creative Arts Therapies Team at First Fortnight, offering therapeutic support to those experiencing homelessness or who are at risk of homelessness. Jessica is extremely passionate about her work, using music as a tool to help and support others. She adopts a trauma-informed approach to therapy, and currently specialises in the areas of general mental health care, trauma, intellectual disability and neuro-developmental disorders such as ASD.
