What to Expect
During a typical therapy session Dr. Jordan analyzes the underlying belief systems that the client has brought into their present experience which is effecting mood, feelings and emotions. This helps the client gain insight into what they believes to be true about themselves.
The stories of their life will help Dr Jordan to shift and change the thought process to one that supports their desired emotional well-being. CBT may be used with clients that are having issues with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, self-esteem issues, etc. Dr. Jordan will utilize CBT in cognitive restructuring by helping the client understand their behaviors in a more logical, rational and adaptive way that they can then use in their every day life.
Dr. Jordan often times uses augmentative therapeutic techniques such as individualized affirmation materials (usually in the form of an audio CD’s or meditation CD’s) to change myelinated thought patterns. We all have myelinated thought patterns. Myelination is simply the neurons in your brain moving towards an electrical impulse (a thought) which is energy. Electrical impulses move towards each other in this process and the thought becomes a habituated electrical impulse.
