Clinical Director, LCSW
Get to know Jordan
Jordan Helms, MSW, LCSW, received her Master of Social Work from Syracuse University and is a licensed clinical social worker in Arizona. She also has a specialty certification in animal-assisted therapy from the Institute for Human-Animal Connection. Jordan is part of the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) community. She is social justice-oriented, culturally responsive, and LGBTQ+ affirming. She enjoys working with individuals ten years of age through young adulthood and has deep experience working with LGBTQ+, ADHD/ASD, anxiety, depression, and self-injurious behavior.
Recognizing there is no one-size-fits-all solution, Jordan takes this to heart and utilizes an eclectic mix of approaches to help heal trauma, build connections, and promote optimal mental health and wellness. And, based on your unique needs, you may experience Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), play therapy, art therapy, mindfulness techniques, gender-affirming care, and animal-assisted therapy, just to name a few.
Are you feeling stuck and unsure of what to do or who to turn to for help and support? Then Jordan can’t wait to connect with you. She creates an open, affirming, and comfortable space for you to explore your challenges and ways to get unstuck. She understands on a deep level how social and cultural influences shape who we are as individuals and how these factors impact our perspectives and overall well-being. Using a trauma-informed and culturally responsive approach, she assists others in harnessing personal strengths and resiliency skills to thrive in the face of adversity.
Away from work, Jordan loves to travel to places around the world. She most recently ventured to Egypt, which she says is a must-see for all interested in rich cultural practices, incredible food, and unbelievable sights. She also spends time with and truly adores her three fur babies and two turtles. She fosters animals routinely and gets her groove in dance class.
