Training & Experience

Jenkin completed his undergraduate degree in neuroscience and mental health studies at the University of Toronto Scarborough and his master and doctoral degrees in clinical psychology (clinical neuropsychology stream) at York University. He received the Canadian Psychological Association’s Certificate of Academic Excellence for his Ph.D. dissertation. His clinical training has taken place across several leading mental health facilities in the Greater Toronto Areas (GTA), including the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, Sunnybrook Health Sciences, Baycrest Hospital, and the York University Psychology Clinic. He completed his pre-doctoral residency in clinical neuropsychology at London Health Sciences Centre, as well as a rotation at Western University’s Health & Wellness counselling clinic.

Guided by his training as a scientist-practitioner, Jenkin’s practice adopts a biopsychosocial lens that delves into the environments, relationships, and self-identity of each client, while considering lived experiences contributing to the clients’ presenting concerns. His experiences with empirically supported treatments include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness-based treatments, and Emotion Focused Therapy, among others. Importantly, Jenkin recognizes the significance of a strong therapeutic relationship, empathy, and relationship skills in effective psychological treatment. As such, he adheres to an integrative, evidence-based approach that is client-centered and culturally sensitive. This approach informs his clinical work, ranging from case conceptualization to the delivery of effective interventions, that are tailored to his clients’ needs and experiences.

Throughout his career, Jenkin has had the privilege of working with a diverse clientele, spanning various life stages, including adolescents, emerging adults, and older adults. As a neuropsychologist by training, Jenkin is interested in working with individuals with psychiatric and cognitive comorbidities resulting from medical and neurological conditions. He has also volunteered for several mental health organizations and has been involved in advocacy work for communities that have difficulty interpreting psychological issues and connecting with mental health resources.

Client Goals & Concerns

Jenkin works with clients with a broad range of goals and concerns, including:

  • Individuals impacted by daily functional challenges due to changes in cognitive abilities (e.g., attention, memory, past and current neurological events)
  • Intergenerational trauma, family stress, and BIPOC identity concerns
  • Life direction guidance for emerging adults and individuals uncertain about future-oriented goals
  • Adjusting to health-related difficulties (e.g., concussion, chronic pain, coping with illnesses)
  • Caregiver or carepartner-related stress and difficulties, especially those with neurological conditions
  • Career dissatisfaction, work stress, burnout
  • Perfectionism and self-criticism
  • Depression, low mood, low self-esteem
  • Generalized anxiety, social anxiety, worry, and general stress
  • Relationship issues, interpersonal challenges (romantic, friends, family)
  • Communication and assertiveness, interpersonal development

Jenkin’s practice is inclusive and welcoming. He is particularly interested in working with clients coming from diverse cultural backgrounds or BIPOC communities that are less receptive to, or knowledgeable of, mental health concerns, ensuring a safe space is created for individuals to feel understood and supported on their journey towards well-being.

Therapeutic Style

Jenkin's therapeutic philosophy centers around the belief that every individual possesses a unique and valuable story that is told throughout the course of therapy. Sometimes, these stories take shape from the outset, while at other times, they gradually reveal themselves over several sessions. Central to his approach is the recognition that each client's narrative is their own to share, and he is unwavering in his commitment to ensure their stories are treated with the utmost respect and value.

Jenkin’s treatment approach draws from his professional expertise and personal journey shaped by diverse cultural influences. His interactions with clients are authentic, relatable, and sincere, fostering an environment where clients can safely open up during the therapeutic partnership. To create an atmosphere where clients can engage comfortably, Jenkin focuses on building a foundation of mutual understanding using humour, warmth, and relatability. The initial sessions are dedicated to uncovering the client’s history, strengths, aspirations, and barriers that hinder their progress. These early conversations set the tone of trust and understanding that will support the effective strategies used to overcome obstacles as therapy progresses. In subsequent sessions, a collaborative endeavour is made to decide whether therapy follows a structured path toward clear objectives or venture into exploratory realms of emotional depth. This flexibility means that therapy can draw upon a specific methodology or encompass a variety of complementary approaches tailored as needed for the directions chosen by the client. This approach underscores the idea that judgment has no place in the therapeutic space—only empathy, understanding, and an earnest desire to see the world from the client’s perspective.

Throughout the therapeutic process, Jenkin places equal importance on nurturing growth, resilience, and self-compassion alongside addressing the issues clients bring to the table. This holistic approach ensures that clients not only address their immediate concerns but also develop the tools and inner resources necessary to thrive beyond therapy. By building a partnership that values each client’s unique narrative, his approach encourages clients to embrace their own stories, understand their challenges, and cultivate a sense of empowerment and well-being to decide how their story unfolds.
