Jordan was born in Michigan and moved with her family to Raleigh, NC in the mid-2000s and has been in the area since. She received her undergraduate degree in Family Community Services – Family Studies with a minor in psychology from East Carolina University in 2017. She then obtained her Master’s (MA) in Marriage and Family Therapy with concentrations in Addictions and Multicultural Counseling from Appalachian State University. She is currently a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (LMFTA) in NC and can see clients either in-person or via telehealth.
Jordan has always had a passion for working with others and it only grew stronger as she got older. As a young teen, she started volunteering at a therapeutic horseback riding center, which served children with disabilities and continued to do so for many years. She is actively involved in her community and has volunteered regularly throughout the years, including serving with the American Red Cross by providing disaster relief services to families in the triangle area. Jordan also used her passion to conduct many research projects and presented her findings at multiple national organizations across the country. She is passionate about mental health awareness and human rights and believes that all people are worthy.
Her clinical experience includes working in multiple community-based mental health settings. She has experience conducting comprehensive clinical assessments and providing counseling services to individuals, couples, and families both in the office and community. In addition, she has experience with group therapy including a women’s Post Traumatic Stress Disorder group, a Psycho-Social Rehabilitation group, and multiple Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) groups. She has worked with those who struggle with Depression, Anxiety, Substance Abuse, Trauma, relationship/familial conflict, and other life stressors. She also has experience working with adults who have Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and those who have been classified as having an Intellectual/Developmental Disability (IDD). Her experience also includes providing case management services, crisis interventions, and advocacy for her clients.
Jordan views the world through a systemic lens and understands that each person is unique. She does not see therapy as a one size fits all and believes in individualized, holistic care. She takes a solution-focused, strength-based approach with her clients in addition to utilizing cognitive-behavioral techniques. She believes that her clients are the expert in their own lives and that through your work together you will be able to make meaning of your situation and work towards your identified goals. Jordan knows that therapy can be challenging and in the therapy room you can expect to be validated yet challenged to reach your goals. She has training in Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, CBT, DBT, and other family models. She works with teens, young to older adults, and couples.
Outside of therapy, Jordan’s other passion is working with animals and you will often find her horseback riding or petting a stranger’s dog. She also likes to craft and tackle DIY projects, even if they do not always turn out as planned! Other activities include listening to music, binge-watching TV shows, taking brisk walks around the neighborhood, and trying new foods.
