Jordan Bobbitt has a Master of Social Work, with a clinical concentration, from the University of Pennsylvania. She is pursuing her License of Social Work (LSW) and her License of Clinical Social Work (LCSW). Jordan’s professional interests include working with people of all ages who have been impacted by sexual assault, domestic violence, and other traumas. By engaging in trauma work, Jordan hopes to create a safe space for her clients to process, work through, and cope with their experiences.
Individuals who have experienced complex traumatic events are among the focus of my clinical practice. I frequently work with adolescents, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and those with disordered eating challenges. With that said, regardless of your identification with these groups, I aim to serve a variety of emotional and behavioral health needs, in a way that is specifically tailored to you. As a gender and identity-affirming therapist, who has experience with resource allocation, therapeutic processing, and advocacy for affirmative care- my top priority is your safety and comfort in session together and within your external systems (i.e., family, school, healthcare, etc.). Regardless of your identity or past, my continuous aim is to serve as a non-judgmental and empathetic space that both encourages, and at times maintains accountability, so that you are able to reach your desired outcome.
Through an integrative approach, I often utilize techniques and interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Person-Centered Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems and more. While this may feel a bit clinical, the humanistic part of my approach is rooted in transparency and honesty. While I hold hope that any previous therapeutic experiences have been nothing but amazing; however, if it has been anything but amazing- your hesitation and hurt is valid. I hope that through collaboration together, we are able to further validate your previous experiences while crafting a new perspective of what therapy can feel like. If this is your first time seeking mental health support, your nerves and curiosity are welcomed. Here lies an opportunity to create a space that meets your emotional/ behavioral health needs, honors your trust, and allows for you to explore and deepen your connection with yourself, and others, regardless of the path that has brought you here.
Why I Love this Field
As your provider, I am given the privilege of walking alongside you during some of your highest highs, lowest lows, and many moments in between. This field allows for me to fulfill the special role of being an individual in your story, who you are willing to trust. This trust is one of the most important gifts that I want to protect and honor throughout the therapeutic process. In our everyday lives, we often interact with the world without much thought or reflection. In therapy, we have the opportunity to safely explore and challenge how we interact with the world and systems in our lives. Why I love this field is because the opportunity to reflect, grow, and work on yourself is in your hands, with my support. It is truly such an honor to be able to be a supporting character in the chapters of your life story and I cannot wait to explore where your journey leads you!
Jordan Bobbitt's Background
A background of clinical social work often lends itself to developing a provider who serves as a therapist, case manager, advocate, resource gatherer, and more. The experiences which first led me on this journey began at The University of California- Davis, where I was awarded a B.S. in Human Development with two minors in Education and Religious Studies. Deeply understanding the biological, psychological, and social components of the human lifespan; how it is impacted by an individual set of beliefs; and how to share this information in a digestible way is essential to the work that I do. To strengthen these skill sets, I attended The University of Pennsylvania where I was awarded an Master of Social Work (MSW), with a Clinical Concentration; however, my skills would not be as well-rounded without my experiences in the field as an adolescent case manager, support group facilitator, mental health advocate, and outpatient therapist.
