Jordan will begin on Oct. 14 and will be working in Langdon and Devil’s Lake.
A 2012 graduate of the Minnesota School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Jordan is ready to get going in her new position.
“It is nice to be back in the area and near family,” she said. “I’m excited to be working at different sites. It is nice to get a variety.”
After receiving their doctorate, psychology residents are required to have one year of supervised work while they apply for their license.
“I want to broaden my skills. I will get a chance to work with a wider range of clients,” Jordan said. “I’m looking forward to that and to doing assessments.”
Jordan decided on psychology after listening to a professor in a class.
“I took a class in college and the professor was talking about how individuals with mental illness had been treated in the past,” she explained. “Past treatments were really awful to be honest. But we’ve come a long way and I thought it was a field I could be helpful in.
“I was interested in helping others and it is a field that requires a lot of compassion and caring for other people and I thought it would be a good fit.”
Helping others and curiosity are the driving forces behind Jordan.
“One thing that drives me is the curiosity about human nature and how we work,” she said. “I am amazed how people keep ticking and rolling despite the hard times they have had on their lives.
“People are incredibly resilient and have a lot of strength. That is something that keeps me going in the field.”
