Jordan has a passion for creating a safe space for and helping others. She is open and approachable.  Clients have often shared that they feel at ease in her space. She is trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS ). She is a client centered therapist.

Jordan is an avid animal lover and have always been interested in the ways that animals can be included in a therapy setting – think Equine Therapy or therapy dogs. I am a Pittsburgh native, and when I am not working, you can find me at the barn with my horse, Tiki, out on a walk around town (usually with a dog), at a Pittsburgh sports event, or reading a good book in Schenely park.
