My Approach to Helping
Hello, I am Jordan. Welcome, and know I am eager to embark on this exploratory journey with you. I am passionate about working with adults, adolescents, and couples to address anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship problems, grief, life adjustments, body image, and other concerns. I affirm all gender, sexual, and cultural identities.
While some approach therapy with a “corrective lens”, I endorse a holistic and relational approach that disentangles unwanted thoughts, behaviors, and feelings and supports your authoring of new and empowering self-narratives. Through compassion, attunement, and mutuality, I hope to create an affirming realm to tend to harmful experiences and promote movement towards your goals.
The root of the word “therapy” is therapeia, one translation of which is “an attendance”. I consider therapy an opportunity to collaboratively dialogue about relationships and yourself with the promise of non-judgmental attendance to your words, emotions, and values. Too often we are fed prescriptive messages from society or others about the “right” way to heal or grow. In this space, we will uncover your narrative and explore the people and experiences that have shaped you with the goal of achieving a greater sense of connectedness, clarity, and well-being.
