Jordan is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a graduate degree in Clinical Psychology from Azusa Pacific University.
She has worked with traumatized individuals struggling with PTSD, depression, anxiety, and eating disorders. Jordan has worked with many populations in a variety of settings including: universities with college students, with children and teens in the K-12 public school system, an intensive outpatient treatment program for eating disorders, and in a non-profit, outpatient setting providing therapy to low-income, first generation individuals and families.
As a licensed psychotherapist, the work Jordan feels most called to do is helping individuals explore, process, and grow from traumatic experiences.
Of particular interest to her is the impact of attachment and intergenerational trauma on a person’s mental health.
Jordan uses a variety of techniques in her work with clients but emphasizes a Gestalt approach and is DBT minded. She enjoys bringing body awareness into the room and helping clients develop the ability to regulate emotions. Jordan incorporates mindfulness into her sessions and focuses heavily on the relationship between client and therapist.
Above all the techniques, fancy therapist lingo, and education, however, her primary focus is showing up as a fellow human. She is inspired by the work of Carl Rogers and uses his most famous quote to ground her work: “The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” Jordan believes that her task as a therapist is therefore to help foster that level of self-acceptance in her clients.
