Hola Therapy

Hi, I’m Jenna Mayhew. I’m an Australian-trained and registered psychologist with over 10 years of experience. I’m a Senior Psychologist, and I have extensive training in mental health and behavioral assessment.

My approach balances deeply exploring topics and actively working together towards set goals. I use a blend of frameworks including CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy) according to what suits your personality and goals. My therapeutic style is generally short-term and focused; however, this is negotiated to best suit your needs.

My Services

    • Assessment and therapy for young people, including those with a disability or special need
    • Behaviour support and parenting strategies
    • Individual therapy for a wide range of concerns
    • Couple’s therapy
    • Debriefing and trauma counseling in relation to pregnancy and childbirth
    • Domestic violence support

Sessions are offered both face to face and online. Flexible hours are available including Saturdays.

I warmly welcome enquiries. I also encourage you to contact more than one therapist. Therapy is most effective when there is the right “fit” between you and your therapist. This should include feeling comfortable and free from judgement and having your needs met by your therapist’s expertise. If I’m not the right fit for you, I will assist in sourcing you an outstanding referral.

Paskwarho



After moving to Mexico City in 2014, Art and Judy enjoyed visiting Pueblos Mágicos throughout the country, and they were impressed by the beautiful handicrafts they discovered. Through Paskwarho, they seek out skilled artisans producing eye-catching pieces that offer a blend of great design and deep tradition. In this way, they can offer their clients unique, high quality pieces for their homes.

The pieces they carry are not found in the souvenir markets around Mexico City.  They pay their regular partners fair prices and when scouting the annual markets for new partners, Art & Judy pass by hundreds of pieces for every piece they take home. Once they have found a partner who is clearly talented and has a style their clients appreciate, they often talk with them about creating new styles. Art & Judy feel their home is richer for having these pieces in it and hope you will cherish your items, too.
