My Approach to Helping
Jordan’s psychotherapy work focuses on addiction, anxiety, depression, identity conflicts, relationship concerns, faith transitions, spirituality, processing trauma, and co-occurring disorders. He has experience with a broad client base of adolescents, adults, and couples, in a variety of settings. Jordan is also able to provide therapy in Spanish.
Jordan’s methods are embedded in a psychodynamic-relational approach. He also incorporates perspectives from relational-cultural, existential, and feminist lenses. Guided by these approaches, he views emotional pain as being grounded in relationships, and the opportunities for growth in their exploration and understanding.
By appreciating the intricacies of language, its rich and personal meanings, Jordan is sensitive to how effective communication can be naturally difficult. As such, he strives for a collaborative approach in therapy, where through the careful exchange of words, connections are made that cultivate change.
Recognizing that engaging in therapy is a vulnerable experience, and at times can be uncomfortable, Jordan supports a therapeutic environment where clients feel seen and heard in the expressions of all their identities. Encouraging an authentic self is vital to his work.
Jordan received an Ed.M. in Counseling Psychology with an additional concentration in Bilingual Latinao Mental Health, and M.A. in Psychological Counseling from Teacher’s College, Columbia University.
