Jordan is a licensed mental health counselor (LSW) and a licensed addiction counselor (ADC-I) who provides telehealth counseling sessions to New Jersey residents. He sees young adults, adults, and seniors for a variety of common mental health concerns surrounding behavioral / chemical addiction, stress and anxiety, depression, grief and loss, and challenging life transitions. He also has experience facilitating group therapy for anger management and addiction treatment.
He utilizes practical skills training to increase clients’ communication, emotional regulation, and anger management skills. When doing cognitive/behavioral work with clients, he builds awareness of how conditioned patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior link together. He then empowers clients to question and shift self-defeating automatic thought patterns and core beliefs. The goal is the experiencing of more functionally healthy mood states and responses to stressors. With addictions, he explores how needs are met through addictive behaviors, healthy ways to meet these complex needs, and the building of support systems to maintain lifestyle changes and a passion-filled long-term recovery. He believes in equifinality (many paths toward the same destination), and has experience facilitating community support groups including Self-Management and Recovery Training and Alcoholics Anonymous among others.
Jordan collaborates with clients to explore and root out obstacles that keep them from living vital, passionate, self-directed lives. He bases sessions on your current needs and struggles, while also building a supportive collaborative therapeutic relationship. He is active during sessions providing feedback to clients, while also offering a neutral environment in which clients can express their needs, daily frustrations and self-improvement goals. He also seeks feedback from clients to ensure the skills practiced in-session are effective and focused, on their treatment goals. Jordan is currently accepting new clients weekdays 8:00am – 6:00pm for both short-term solution-focused counseling, and long-term therapy.
