Meet Dr. Jessica Kaffer, Psy.D.

Dr. Kaffer is a licensed Clinical Psychologist and a Perinatal Mental Health Specialist located in the Phoenix area. She provides virtual psychotherapy sessions to clients in need across multiple state lines as a PSYPACT Psychologist. She graduated with her doctorate degree in Psychology from Midwestern University and has experience treating various mental health disorders. Initially, Dr. Kaffer sought out specialty trainings specific to trauma treatment and focused much of her time on providing services to first responders and members of the armed forces. Although Dr. Kaffer still provides treatment to public service members, as well as the general population, her real passion was ignited after she became a mother.

 

Dr. Kaffer felt a special connection to the Perinatal Mental Health population after she experienced her own struggles in pregnancy and postpartum. After noticing a general lack of resources and education, not only related to mental health but also to other pregnancy and postpartum needs, she decided to refocus her love and attention on providing support and treatment to moms in every stage of motherhood (prenatal, postpartum, and beyond). It is her hope that through education and appropriate treatment, a community of happy and well-supported mother's will be born!

Amanda Nomicos, MS, LAC

Amanda completed her master’s degree at Liberty University in clinical mental health counseling. She went on to receive specialized training in trauma, EMDR, and perinatal mental health. Amanda’s primary experience is in treating adolescents and adults, but she recognized her passion for working with people on their journey to motherhood and after their children are born.

 

Amanda loves working with the Perinatal Mental Health population as she started her own journey to motherhood. After her own miscarriages, she noticed a lack of counselors that were able to adequately assist women in this trying time.  She hopes to create a safe space where healing can occur. She likes to work with women who have experienced loss, postpartum anxiety, depression, and adjusting to motherhood.
