Jordan Dobrovolny, LICSW, therapist at Portland Station, has experience in both wilderness therapy models and in community mental health for the last seven years. In addition, Jordan serves as a clinical supervisor to Master’s level clinicians working toward licensure.
The roots of Jordan’s work as a mental health professional began in the wilderness at SUWS, as she helped adolescents gain crucial life skills and address mental health challenges in the SUWS wilderness therapy program in Idaho. Additional experience included Pacific Quest wilderness therapy on the big island of Hawaii.
Prior to obtaining her Master’s degree in social work from Portland State University, Jordan continued to hone her personal development through an extended student program at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA. During her graduate program, Jordan completed an internship at Kaiser Permanente in which she provided outpatient therapy to clients of all ages. As Jordan wanted to enhance her knowledge and skill, she gained post-graduate training in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy (Level I) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR, Levels I & II). Jordan maintains a group practice position at Family Solutions in Vancouver, WA.
