JorDyne earned her Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lipscomb University. Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, JorDyne is an HBCU graduate with a B.S in Psychology from Tennessee State University. She had an early educational focus in neuroscience and completed several research internships at both Princeton and Vanderbilt Universities.
Prior to joining our practice, JorDyne worked in several outpatient and school settings, with a variety of clients. Her clinical experience has included working with children and young adults, providing services to youth in the juvenile justice system, children exposed to trauma, clients struggling with drug and alcohol addiction, and a variety of other presenting issues.
Currently, JorDyne finds joy in working with children, adolescents, and young adults. Her clinical interests include supporting individuals and families dealing with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, trauma, racism, grief, ADHD, adjustment difficulties, adoption issues, and phase of life problems. Her therapy style is client-centered, yet solution-focused and tailored to each client’s needs. She wants to create a safe space for clients to be heard and understood.
JorDyne is very passionate about working within the Black community to provide resources and break stigmas surrounding therapy and mental health. JorDyne uses her multicultural competency and client-centered approach along with CBT, and other counseling theories that fit each client’s situation and story. She hopes that one day mental health awareness and therapy become as common as a check-up with your medical doctor or dentist. JorDyne has created a Mental Health Journal available on Amazon titled “Little Black Book” to help normalize making mental health a priority. In this journal there are prompts, resources and helpful information provided to encourage a healthy mindstate. For JorDyne, this is only the beginning of her efforts in increasing mental health awareness in all communities.
